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:
