For Introduction to Early Childhood Education courses. Covers ages 0-8. The fourth edition of this best-selling text has been thoroughly updated to ensure that future teachers of young children encounter the most current ideas about how children learn, how best to teach them, and how to effectively include their families and their communities in their education. This revision offers a new chapter on Standards, a new diversity feature in each chapter as well as throughout the text, and increased coverage of Vygotsky's theories and suggestions for implementing them in today's classrooms. Plus, it again provides Morrison's trademark trio-comprehensive coverage, inviting format, and appealing writing. A low cost, paperback alternative to the full edition.
