From the Publisher:

This new text provides an in-depth examination, from an analytical perspective, of five curriculum models that have shaped current early childhood education practice. Here is a comprehensive, socio-historical examination of five enduring curriculum models--Montessori, Developmental-Interaction, Direct Instruction, Kamii-DeVries, and High-Scope--along with thoughtful analysis of the purpose and function of curriculum models, and their impact upon the field of early childhood education. A careful, complete exploration of each curriculum model, with a strong emphasis on theoretical underpinnings, helps educators fully understand similarities and differences and relate these to curriculum and teaching. Compelling discussion covers each model's unique socio-historical context, and final chapters examine current evaluations of curriculum models, the theoretical and curricular basis of model development, and current issues in early childhood education as they relate to present-day demands for high-quality programs for young children.
