Front Cover
Merrill/Prentice Hall, 2003 - Education - 497 pages

This practical book shows prospective teachers of children ages 2 to 5 how the basic characteristics of young children should influence instructional planning, curriculum, and expectations. Coverage is organized around eleven areas of experience that are critical to a child's development. Coverage incorporates the best of traditional methods and the brightest ideas of today's “cutting edge” thinkers into a cohesive presentation that emphasizes the individuality of each child and the idea that a relaxed, unstructured, yet carefully-planned atmosphere is most conducive to effective teaching. For educators who love children and want to help them “go forth” successfully.
