"Helps students create the best programs for young children ages three through eight. " The authors' goal in writing "Developmentally Appropriate Curriculum: Best Practices in Early Childhood Education" was to bring together the best information currently available for developing an integrated approach to curriculum and instruction in the early years. " "The Sixth Edition addresses all aspects of classroom life, including the roles of children and adults, the physical and social environments, and teaching and learning within multiple domains for children age three to eight. It provides a comprehensive, cohesive approach to curriculum development, which results in greater continuity for children and practitioners in group settings in childcare, preschool, and the early elementary grades.Concentrating as much on the "how" of curriculum development as on the "what and why," the authors provide practical, research-based guidelines for translating theory into best practice that accommodates age-appropriateness, individual differences, and social and cultural diversity. Students learn how to conceptualize, plan, implement, and evaluate curriculum through detailed application opportunities in each chapter. Video-Enhanced Pearson eText.
