@HEADLINE= Improve the quality of your early childhood education curriculum planning! @BULLET= Emphasizes skill development (motor, perceptual, memory, literacy and problem-solving), including strong coverage of planning to encourage development across all domains. @BULLET= Includes strategies for documenting compliance with national standards in the field. @BULLET= Integrated activities cover ECE national priority areas: literacy, math, science, ecology, anti-bias and multicultural awareness, and parent involvement. @SUMMARY= This comprehensive book offers easy and practical systems to organize and integrate interest-based and skill-based curriculum ideas and to effectively plan for young children. It makes ongoing lesson plans easier to write, implement and monitor, and links lesson planning to both curriculum objectives and children's outcomes in all learning domains. The book provides comprehensive information on the setting of daily schedules, long and short range lesson planning, guidance/classroom management, and trends and priorities in the field. Diagrams, lesson plan forms, illustrations, and developmentally sequenced activity tables help teachers organize scaffolded experiences in all learning domains. The book also describes implementation that meets the diverse and changing needs of every child from the beginning to end of the year. @AUTHBIO=Evelyn Petersenis a nationally known, award-winning parenting columnist and child and family advocate.
