Early Childhood Education, Birth - 8: The World of Children, Families, and Educators, 4/e

ISBN: 0205536042

 

 

“The text is excellent. It addresses most of our state’s competencies as well as the NAEYC common core of knowledge and skills.  I think the pedagogy of the book is its strength. I love the Journal Reflection questions and also the Professional Portfolio sections.”

        -                      Kathy Allen, Blue Ridge Community College, NC

 

“The goals and objectives of the course that I teach, Introduction to Early Childhood Education, are thoroughly covered in this text.  All chapters are written with an ‘interactive’ component that encourages students to be active participants in their own learning.”

        -                      Fran Dulcich, Onondaga Community College, NY

 

Through extended case studies, Early Childhood Education brings key concepts and developmentally appropriate practices to life for future early childhood educators.

 

Chapters seven through twelve focus on stories of real children in a way that offers a personal look into early childhood settings for children ages Birth - 8.  With a manageable length and readable narrative, the fourth edition of this popular introductory text provides an overview of the foundations, while fostering professional development and advocacy, reflective teaching and learning, and best practices for children and their families. 

 

What makes the fourth edition unique?

  • Attention to current issues affecting young children, including stress, obesity, and fears prompted by war and terrorism, and their implications for children’s play and ECE curriculum, prepares future teachers for a sophisticated approach to guidance.
  • Increased discussion showing how to appropriately support children’s development and learning with media in early childhood programs and related examples and activities.
  • The latest data on family health coverage, stress, poverty, and homelessness provides a comprehensive picture of diverse families in the U.S. today.
  • Increased coverage of physical/motor skills, outdoor play spaces and activities, and health and safety issues.
  • National and state curriculum standards in appropriate discipline areas appear as examples throughout the book to help future teachers better understand standards and apply them to practice.
  • Updates on recent brain research and studies of bilingual children provide the most current information to apply to practice.
