9780132286213: Early Childhood Education Today

The broad, comprehensive coverage in this market-leading text, is now more visually engaging and useful than ever.  Written by one of the best-known authors in the field, this is the only book of its kind to provide chapters on child care and federal legislation while also offering foundational chapters and developmental chapters on infants through eight-year-olds.  The broadest foundational coverage available is organized around seven core themes: Professionalism in Practice, Theory to Practice, Diversity, Family-Centered/Community-Based Practice, Timeliness, Developmentally-Appropriate Practice, and Applying Technology. The content is reinforced with a new DVD that allows students the opportunity to ‘see’ what they are learning about - not just read the content - using integrated margin notes.  Eight videos illustrate key settings and approaches, in diverse environments.  Now with a focus on how-to strategies and guidelines, the result is a much more applied book.  For early childhood teachers or any childcare worker.

From the Back Cover:

Morrison, Early Childhood Education Today, 10e

 

Comprehensive coverage.  The 10th edition provides the broad, comprehensive coverage that users expect. This is the only book of its kind to provide chapters on child care and federal legislation while also offering foundational chapters and developmental chapters on infants through eight-year-olds. Readers gain a sense of not only the field today and its current issues, but also what young children are like and how to work with them as professionals. 

 

New Early Childhood Settings and Approaches DVD. Today’s visual students demand today’s technology. A DVD with eight videos illustrating key early childhood settings and approaches is included with every copy of this text. Video references in the marginsof the book also link book content to video content. As students read about Reggio Emilia, Head Start, or infant/toddler classrooms, students, and teachers, they can see them on the videos and deepen their understanding of the book’s content and what it takes to be an early childhood professional.

 

More Useful Than Ever.  A focus on adding more useful, "how-to" strategies and guidelines has resulted in a much more applied book. New Competency Builder features, with clear step-by-step instructions, build competence and confidence in today’s early childhood professionals. Students need to know how to build portfolios, observe children, create lesson plans, document learning, and support English language learners, and these features helps them learn to do these key tasks and more. A new Ethical Dilemma at the end of every chapter help readers learn to make important professional decisions based on NAEYC’s revised Code of Ethical Conduct.
