9780131195929: The Whole Child: Development Education for the Early Years (8th Edition)

For an Introduction to Early Childhood course. Covers ages 0-5. Written in a warm, engaging style, this text embraces the emergent approach to fostering cognitive skills in children from birth through age five. It provides a complete developmental approach to early childhood education, giving teachers the specific skills they need to teach the whole child-emotionally, socially, physically, creatively, and cognitively. The author believes that physical and emotional health are fundamental to the well-being of children and provides practical methods and materials that address the entire individual, not just curriculum topics. A strength of the book is while it focuses on the five developmental "selves" of children, it places them in the context of contemporary family life and the multicultural world of today.

From the Back Cover:

The complete practical methods book that uses a developmental approach to educate readers about young children from infancy through age 5.

The thoroughly updated and revised Eighth Edition covers the same concrete, how-to information that students find so useful, but now in fewer chapters.  While addressing daily issues such as naptime, toileting, and communicating with families, these authors also explain how to implement theoretical issues such as emergent curriculum and Vygotsky's notion of scaffolding to support children's learning.  From discussions on child abuse to the fostering of cognitive skills, the hands-on authors give students an authentic experience in what it means to support the whole child emotionally, socially, cognitively, physically, and creatively. 

This edition includes:

  • The special concerns of working with infants and toddlers
  • Expanded coverage of diversity-the impact of poverty on children and families, strategies for including children with disabilities in classroom activities, and a new Diversity assessment item at the end of each chapter
  • The importance of advocacy for children, families, and the profession
  • Supporting children's physical fitness to combat the growing health crisis presented by the increasing incidence of obesity in children
  • Practical examples of how teachers adapt the Reggio Emilia approach in American classrooms, including discussions about documentation
  • Chapters describing the emergent and conventional approaches to curriculum
  • Information on how to cope with crisis and violence, including war, terrorism, emergency preparedness, and ways to create a peacable classroom
  • Internet references for the most important early childhood organizations and free resources
