-- MyEducationLab with Pearson eText Student Access Code Card to accompany Total Learning, 8/e by Hendrick/Weissman
Total Learning: Developmental Curriculum for the Young Child is based primarily on a constructivist philosophy and advocates designing curriculum that uses children's interests within a flexible and thoughtful teacher-guided plan.
The developmental approach emphasizes that learning should be integrated. The text addresses curriculum through discussion of the five selves: physical, emotional, social, creative, and cognitive. The authors also emphasize play, cross-cultural sensitivity, and how to encourage competence in young children. Present-day emergent curriculum programs are explored.
Clear writing and practical examples ensure easy reading. The concise writing style, relevant examples, and practical suggestions are hallmarks of this text. Well-developed tables organize pertinent information.
The excellent theoretical base and conceptual framework for curriculum provide understanding that is designed to stay with students forever. The text encourages students to respond to the needs of children, and also explains how to identify goals and objectives, incorporate them into curriculum that meets individual needs, and use developmentally appropriate assessment methods.
