Developmentally Appropriate Curriculum: Best Practices in Early Childhood Education
Pearson, Merrill Prentice Hall, 2004 - Education - 507 pages
For Curriculum in Early Childhood Education Courses.
This text brings together the best information available on developing an integrated, holistic approach to curriculum and instruction for children age three to eight in such formal group settings as childcare, pre-school, and the early elementary grades. Concentrating as much on the "how" of curriculum development as on the "what and why," the authors present numerous examples and practical, research-based guidelines organized by developmental domain for translating theory into best practice that accommodates age-appropriateness, individual differences, and social and cultural diversity. A unique field-tested observation tool in the Instructor's Manual supplies critical feedback during students' classroom sessions.
