Supplementary text for the Curriculum in Early Childhood Education course in Early Childhood Education and Child and Family Studies departments. This book on state early learning standards for young children is a useful resource in helping preservice and practicing teachers learn how to connect their lesson/activity planning to many states' new early learning standards. Key chapters include presenting standards in the following areas: Communication and Literacy, Mathematics, Science, Social Studies, Social/Emotional Development, Physical Development and Health, and Creative Arts. Then, how children might show progress toward these standards is divided into three levels of progress, and curriculum suggestions are provided for each progress level.
