Three Dimensions of Learning: A Blueprint for Learning from the Womb to the School
Three Dimensions of Learning: A Blueprint for Learning from the Womb to the School is Dr. Carolyn Nooks-Teague’s first and only book (as of the moment). This was first published in late 2017 with 188 pages in total. This comprehensive and informative guidebook designed by Carolyn Nooks offers a practical approach to assisting a child’s development starting from the womb up to the time he or she goes to school. This guidebook explores how a child’s learning process works and how parents and teachers can play an active role in the child’s growth.
For the first two dimensions of learning, the womb, and the home, parents are in charge. The author encourages parents to develop resiliency in their children to help prepare them for life outside of the home. Do you know how to develop resiliency in your child? Have you taught him or her how to deal with bullying? Parents are reminded of developmental milestones and how to use them. Home tests and activities are provided to help parents support normal development as well as recognize the symptoms of possible developmental delays or conditions.
The role of the teacher is highlighted during the third dimension of learning. Teachers are encouraged to connect to each child at an emotional level, to seek knowledge of the child’s interests, talents and passions. Information that will increase the teacher’s awareness of hidden disabilities and how to recognize their symptoms is provided. For example, do you have a student that leans to one side when reading or complains about tags in clothing? The author shares science-informed teaching strategies that demonstrate how the brain learns and how being aware of this can change a child’s life (Excerpt from Amazon).
There are no perfect parents. A good parent can make a bad decision here and there. And Dr. Carolyn Nooks-Teague’s book guides making informed decisions to bring out the best in a child and empower their future. After all, what’s important in being an effective parent is what one can do over time.
