Early Childhood Curriculum: A Constructivist Perspective
Houghton Mifflin Company, 2003 - Education - 379 pages
This text examines curricular goals such as autonomy, development, and problem solving and links those goals with constructivist principles of learning. It explores ways teachers can create meaningful learning environments and choose curriculum tasks--in reading, writing, speaking, math, computers, and physical knowledge--that are linked to the learning and development needs of young children.
Unlike many competing texts, "Early Childhood Curriculum completely integrates curriculum with learning principles, representing true-to-the-spirit implementation of National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC) guidelines for developmentally appropriate practice.
