About this title:
Synopsis:
Beginnings & Beyond, 7e is an introductory text that has stood the test of time with the ability to respect all learners, while introducing them to the wide range of content areas needed to understand early childhood education. Students find that the book is useful to them over time, and well into their professional life. As teachers, former students return to the chapters on guidance, observation & assessment, and curriculum as they grow in their work with children. Thus, this is an excellent book for a foundations course, for a curriculum course, and as a reference for teachers both at the beginning level, and beyond as a seasoned teacher in their career

About the Author:
Ann Gordon has been in the early childhood field for over 45 years as a teacher of young children, of parents, and of college students. She has taught in lab schools, church-related centers, and private and public preschool and kindergarten programs. While at Stanford, Ann was at the Bing Nursery School for 11 years and was a lecturer in the Psychology Department. For 10 years she also served as an adjunct faculty member in four colleges, teaching the full gamut of early childhood courses. Ann served as executive director of the National Association of Episcopal Schools for 14 years, where more than 1100 early childhood programs were a part of her network. She is now consulting in the areas of early childhood curriculum governance and professional development.

Kathryn Williams Browne has been teaching children, families, and students for more than 30 years. First a teacher of young children--in nursery schools, parent cooperatives, full-day child care, pre-kindergarten, bilingual pre-schools, kindergarten, and first grade--she moved to Stanford University's lab school where she served as head teacher and psychology lecturer. Co-authoring with Ann Miles Gordon was enhanced by Kate's role as a parent; her Consultant and School Board experience offered perspectives into public policy and reform. Kate teaches in the California Community College system coordinating the Early Childhood Department and the Early Childhood Mentor program, which offer the richness of a diverse student population coupled with the challenges of access and privilege that parallel those in the early education field itself. Special assignments include State Faculty Association, Academic Senate, and Educator Competencies integration, which add the special challenges of diversity and professionalism of early childhood education that guide her work.
