Early Childhood Education, Birth-8 by Amy Driscoll

Book Description

In a uniquely readable style, these authors use case studies to illustrate and integrate the foundations, key concepts, and methods of early childhood education. Written to bring the reader into the child's world, the second edition of this popular introductory text provides an overview of the foundations of early childhood education, while fostering professional development, reflective teaching and learning, and the best practices for children and their families. Organized chronologically, six age-related chapters include an integrated, thematic case that intimately describes the child, his/her family, community, caregiving and teaching situation, and highlights the best practices available for that age. This provides the opportunity to observe developmentally appropriate practices in authentic settings. Through the application of the case and the chapter's theory and journal reflection activities, students learn to integrate new concepts and best practices for young children with their own experience. This integration fosters reflective decision-making and teaching. This learning process serves as the foundation for a lifelong journey toward working with young children in a variety of early childhood education settings.
