    World War II for Kids: A History with 21 Activities
    by Richard Panchyk "is the ideal tool to teach children about the war that insured the freedom they enjoy today... The activities in World War II for Kids provide hands-on opportunities to explore the era of the war through projects and games. Children will learn how soldiers communicated with their families by writing their own v-mail messages, discover the language of war by creating a code for friends to crack and experience how soldiers lived by making their own field rations and care packages from home." My favorite parts of the book were the interview and eyewitness accounts excerpted from actual letters written by soldiers or civilians between 1939 and 1945. The book also contains graphics and timelines that are helpful in giving an simple overview of a complex historical event. World War II for Kids is endorsed by veteran and former senator John McCain, whose father and grandfather were both combat commanders during WWII.

    Over the past five or six years, child-centered practice as a concept has received some exposure thanks to coverage in the popular press and media. The concept has been referred to as developmentally appropriate practices (DAP), child-centered practice, constructivism, active learning, and other terms. The concept implies an understanding of how children learn and develop which is then applied to instruction. The practice requires that teachers structure instruction around the needs of the growing, individual children. As more school districts investigate DAP and jump into the change process, it is not uncommon for communities to question the concepts that underly the philosophy. Additionally, there have been several critiques of DAP from universities and authors. The following critiques are drawn from those published comments. Answers to the critiques are drawn from Sue Bredekamkp's answer to a Los Angeles Times letter to the editor.
