Teachers College Press, 1 ene. 1999 - 310 páginas
Hailed as a "tremendous value" by Young Children and "informative and provocative" by Educational Leadership, this popular textbook has been an essential resource for kindergarten and early elementary teachers, curriculum planners, and graduate students in early childhood education for over a decade. Bringing educators completely up to date, this Third Edition includes two totally new chapters on inclusion and the multicultural world of the early childhood classroom ...an overview of current developments in the field...and unique coverage of curriculum-making, teaching strategies, play, reading, math, science, social studies, movement, music, and art. Once again, this text will enable educators to make decisions about what curriculum content is appropriate for young children by presenting the best thinking of authorities in curriculum content areas.
