Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

“This book’s chapters are the perfect match for the content we think is essential to introduce in our entry-level class. They each are wonderfully written for a beginning early childhood education student to familiarize themselves with appropriate choices for curriculum, center design, and instructional strategies.”

­–Kathryn Lilie Jenkins, University of Houston

 

“This text is an amazingly comprehensive book! The writing is clear and easy to read. The topics covered are all the important ones and they are well organized. I am very impressed and congratulate the author on doing such a fine job!”

–Ann M. Bingham-Newman, California State University—Los Angeles

 

“I like this textbook a great deal. The continuing focus on DAP builds the students’ ‘dependence’ on it as a source for guidance in teaching. The focus on NAEYC guidance also helps students recognize the significance of professional organizations.”

Linda Peacock, Southwest Missouri State University

 

 

This popular resource is a thorough examination of day-to-day aspects of standards-based, developmentally appropriate teaching of young children. Using student-friendly, readable language, Jo Ann Brewer demonstrates how to integrate developmentally appropriate practice into the early childhood curriculum. The extensive coverage of curricula, particularly early literacy and language, is a hallmark of this book. Unlike other books in the market, there is a strong focus on diversity, students with special needs, and real-world experience from teachers currently in the classroom.

 

 

New to This Edition

 

  • Key term lists added to the beginning of each chapter identify important concepts discussed in text and appear with definitions in the end-of-book glossary.
  • All new Learning Plans provide step-by-step procedures for lessons and projects that can be done in the classroom. Topics include teaching measurement, creating class cookbooks, and more. 
  • Throughout the chapter, marginal icons pointing to relevant text are correlated by number to the standards of the National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC).
  • Chapters in Part II, Content-Area Curriculum, incorporate student achievement standards advocated by the most prominent professional organizations for each discipline.
  • Integrating the Curriculum, with a new theme of “Spaces,” demonstrates how teachers can use a common theme when teaching multiple content areas.
  • New annotated website addresses in the margins provide students opportunity to use the Internet to further explore content discussed in the chapters.
  • Praxis icons appear in the margin to help readers think about how the text they’re reading relates to questions they will encounter on Praxis exams.
  • Every chapter ends with two new sections to challenge the student’s learning, Activities and Reflections and Explorations (critical thinking questions).
  • The book concludes with Resources for Further Reading, organized by the chapter to which they relate.

4 of 4 people found the following review helpful By Dr. Glenda Boone on September 8, 2000
Format: Hardcover
This is the first semester I have used this book. It is a fairly comprehensive book for introducing early childhood preservice teachers to EC curriculum. It covers every area of the curriculum with emphasis on the constructivist perspective. Two areas that I find lacking are the index in the book itself and the teacher's supplement. The index is not comprehensive at all, and the suggested test questions in the supplement are often ambiguous and many times not covered in the book.

This is an excellent textbook and resource for educators that disusses educational philosophies and teaching styles, classroom set ups, frameworks of elementary education, and notable contributors to learning and teachning styles. This textbook is a great reference for elementary teachers.

Format: Hardcover
I used this book to study for my Praxis II in early childhood education. It covers every aspect that you need to know in regard to the basic and founding principles and people.
I love the way the cite primary resources when talking about Zone of Proximal Development, Maturationist, and Constructivist Models.
I passed my Praxis II on the first try with flying colors.

Considering it's a textbook, I can only like it so much! But it was the exact book I needed, same as the picture. Great rental price compared to other sites.
