CAIRO BOOKS's Description
Through the presentation of detailed case studies, this book illustrates and
integrates the foundations, key concepts, and developmentally appropriate
practices of early childhood education, while fostering professional
development. Written to bring the reader into the child's world, the third
edition of this popular introductory text provides an overview of the
foundations of early childhood education, while fostering professional
development, reflective teaching and learning, and best practices for children
and their families. In addition to six foundational chapters, each of six
chronologically organized, age-related chapters includes an integrated,
thematic case study that highlights one child; his or her family, community,
and caregiving and educational situation: and the best practices available for
that age. These chapters provide students the opportunity to observe
developmentally appropriate practices in authentic settings. Through the case
studies, theory, and journal reflection activities, students learn to integrate
new concepts and best practices for young children with their own experiences.
This learning process serves as the foundation for a lifelong journey of
working with young children in a variety of early childhood education settings.
