Comprehensive, practical, and engaging—a joyful, child-centered book designed to help students understand the content and processes involved in curriculum for young children.
This child-centered approach to understanding and planning curriculum focuses on humanistic and progressive education pedagogy in preschool and primary grades. The authors stress a curriculum that is joyful, has meaning to children, is built upon children’s strengths, has intellectual integrity, uses developmentally appropriate pedagogy, and encourages teachers to be passionate learners along with children. The book’s personal tone, many practical examples, step-by-step lesson planning process, and children’s art and photographs of children bring the content to life. The new edition features updating throughout, a number of new features that add to the understanding and usefulness of the concepts, new sections on teaching curriculum to two-year-olds, and a new connection to current national subject area standards throughout.
