From the Publisher:

This popular introduction to preschool curriculum planning explains how to plan and present a developmentally-appropriate early childhood curriculum...and focuses on fostering children's emotional, social, creative, cognitive, and physical growth through curriculum that is age- appropriate, play-nourished, and intended to encourage children to become independent, creative people. In the Fourth Edition, there is an increased emphasis on such key issues as whole language, mainstreaming, parental involvement, non-sexist education, and multicultural education. New tables categorize preschool activities by the skill they foster; there are new ideas for accommodating children with disabilities that reflect the latest federal mandates for inclusion; and, current trends in evaluation are thoroughly addressed. A unique feature of this edition is discussion of the exciting new Italian preschools of Reggio Emilia. This is one of the first texts in the field to explain this approach and show how it can apply to American preschools! Total Leaming, Fourth Edition continues to champion the most inclusive educational environment possible, and stresses ways in which teachers and educational systems can accomplish necessary economizing while still maintaining an appealing environment in which all children can learn, and enjoy that learning!
