This first edition gives educators a detailed view of how children ages three to six learn, based on theories of Piaget, Vygotsky and social constructivist learning. It examines how children respond in the steps of inquiry and how educators can develop skills to foster children?s active exploration in each step. Through an array of exploratory curriculum styles in math and science, including Inquiry Topics, students will develop strong skills in selecting, framing, and expanding curriculum for the preschool and kindergarten children teach. Educators also will become familiar with introducing an array of technology to enhance inquiry in the classroom.
