“What kind of person am I?  What kind of professional will I become?”

 

These are the questions that the authors pose to the reader in Who Am I in the Lives of Children, Eighth Edition .  Taking a child-centered approach and focusing on values and ethics the authors present the foundation and the tools that pre-service teachers need to become the kind of teacher that can make a difference in a child’s life. 

 

The book offers the following pedagogical tools to help accomplish this goal: 

  • Reflection Boxes —encourage reflective thinking.
  • Learning Outcomes —relate to the NAEYC standard for the content covered in each chapter.
  • To Learn More —This section includes suggestions for projects to help students learn more about the content in the chapter.
  • For Your Portfolio —This part suggests items that students may want to add to their professional portfolio to create a document that can be presented later to prospective employers. 

Practical and clear in its orientation, the book lays out the foundation of the field of early childhood education.  Each chapter in the book is constructed to help students to gain awareness, acquire knowledge, or develop skills in an essential are of early childhood education.  Each chapter builds on the one before it to present a constructivist, developmental approach to the field.  It is the hope of the authors that students reading the book will be empowered to become a competent, nurturing, and reflective early childhood educator and an active and committed advocate for young children.

Discover who you are as an educator!   

The authors’ vision in writing this text was to teach others to work with young children.  This child-centered text, now in its eighth edition, continues to help students discover who they are as educators, and what they value for children rather than focusing exclusively on content and skills.  Embracing a constructivist philosophy, it provides a foundation for a career in early childhood that is built on respect for children, the importance of teachers' reflections on their own values and actions, and a clear presentation of principles and practice. 

Written in conversational and personal voice and appealing to a wide range of students, this text supports readers' personal and professional development.  The authors' unique talents as university and community college professors, teachers of young children, and national policy makers have come together to help students understand children and their important role in children's lives.
