For courses in Curriculum in Early Childhood (Early Childhood Education), Ages 3-8
Readers see clearly how children learn; what children can learn; and the specific concepts, ideas, and strategies that are developmentally appropriate for young children.
Reader friendly and filled with examples, anecdotes, and practical hands-on strategies, activities, and lesson plans, A Practical Guide to Early Childhood Curriculum offers pre- and in-service teachers specific help for planning, designing, and implementing effective early childhood curriculum for ages three through eight. Here the authors emphasize how to teach, while providing a solid foundation for the theoretical basis of the concepts being applied. Teachers see clearly what can be taught to young children, why it is important, and how it can be accomplished. The emphasis is on the importance of a child-centered curriculum that encompasses the whole child–physical, social, emotional, creative, and cognitive–and the focus is on the developmental needs of the children in the classroom, the cognitive areas of the curriculum, and effective methods of curriculum implementation.
