Built around the 13 functional areas of the Child Development Associate (CDA) credential, this book is packed with the information future teachers need, whether they will teach in a preschool, child care center, Head Start program, or pre-Kindergarten setting. All of the basic classroom skills are covered, bolstered by a theoretical background and accompanied by practical ideas for applying book concepts with young children and families. Topics emphasize ways to create a calm and happy classroom atmosphere, how to handle emergencies in a way that dissipates children's fears, strategies for supporting children's mental and emotional health, and ideas for helping children cope with traumas in their life. Includes discussions of new picture books; more than 200 children's books; computer programs that support text-recommended hands-on activities; cultural influences on children; and expanded discussion of the ways children make friends. For practicing teachers, administrators, or volunteers seeking CDA certification.

Through the use of a unique Teacher Skills Checklist, this text guides students, step-by-step, through the entire range of skills they'll need as Early Childhood professionals. The new edition of this popular volume again focuses on training students to help young children become independent and self-directed in their learning...while, at the same time, helping students develop their own independence. Each of the text's thirteen self-contained chapters is matched to one of thirteen functional areas in which proficiency is required for CDA certification. Each chapter provides thorough background on the theory behind the skill being covered, as well as a number of practical ideas for putting that theory into practice in a variety of early childhood educational settings. This text has helped prepare thousands of future teachers to work successfully with three- to five-year-olds. Its strong teacher orientation and informal, enjoyable tone help maintain its position as one of the most popular texts in the field.About the Author:
