Teachers Resisting Unhealthy Children's Entertainment
TRUCE has been very busy making major revisions and a redesign of its Media Action Guide and Toy and Play Action Guide. Both will be off the presses in time for the NAEYC Annual Conference in Anaheim in early November. TRUCE members will be at NAEYC distributing these two Guides, plus the Infant-Toddler Media, Toys and Play Action Guide. And for the first time, we will be sharing a booth in the Conference Exhibition Hall with master musician and new TRUCE Steering Committee Member Hugh Hanley. All three Guides will be available for download at the TRUCE website: www.truceteachers.org. The website has information about how to become more involved in TRUCE issues as well as how to sign up to receive periodic emails about new resources from TRUCE. TRUCE Steering Committee Members are available to give workshops to parents and early childhood professionals on the kinds of issues covered in the TRUCE Guides.
