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.

This is the eBook of the printed book and may not include any media, website access codes, or print supplements that may come packaged with the bound book. A comprehensive overview of all the components necessary to run an effective early childhood program as a teacher, this bright new text remains keenly focused on application and skill-building, utilizing several areas of child development–aesthetic, affective, cognitive, language, physical, and social–as the basis for curriculum planning. Includes curriculum areas such as aesthetics, affective, language, physical, social, cognitive (math) and cognitive (science); chapters on child guidance; how to observe and assess children’s learning; detailed approaches to planning lessons, days and weeks; circle time activities; creating learning centers both indoors and outside; and projects and themes with sample projects and lesson plan samples throughout. The book promotes several areas of child development—aesthetic, affective, cognitive, language, physical, and social—and incorporates subject matter areas (art, math, literacy, and science) into the developmental domains rather than focusing on the subjects themselves. There are six activity types (exploratory play, guided discovery, problem-solving, discussions, demonstrations, and direct instruction) in every domain presented to the reader, as well. The contents of the book are all closely aligned to the current developmentally appropriate practice (DAP) guidelines. Strongly methods-based in its approach, the book also imparts the “how to” of teaching, with many developmentally appropriate examples of ways to teach children ages three to six years of age.
Thoughtful and comprehensive, DEVELOPMENTALLY APPROPRIATE PRACTICE: CURRICULUM AND DEVELOPMENT IN EARLY EDUCATION, 6th Edition, is designed to meet the needs of new early childhood students as well as experienced teachers, professionals, and parents.

The text reflects the NAEYC position statement on Developmentally Appropriate Practice and includes content on aligning early childhood teaching practices with national and state education standards, in addition to many student-oriented features and applications. Among other changes, this edition includes new integration of professional standards, model letters for communicating with families, real-world scenarios for practicing intentional decision-making, and the latest on brain research relevant to early education.

The increasing numbers of young children cared for by others beyond family has naturally led to questions about the most helpful practices to nurture their development. Now educators, care-givers, administrators, and parents can get the direction they need. Practical and comprehensive, this book offers clear discussions on the specifics of what is and is not developmentally appropriate for children from birth through age 8.
Combines research and practice on integrated developmentally appropriate curriculum that helps theorists, researchers, parents, and teachers understand how to match early childhood teaching practices to the integrated manner that young children naturally think and learn.
Filled with information and inspiration for applying DAP in your work with infants and toddlers.
The guiding principles of developmentally appropriate early childhood education are examined, along with pertinent research, concrete examples, and implications for practice. Chapter 1 provides a brief introduction to recent trends in early childhood education. Chapter 2 considers the principle of matching early childhood education practices to the ways children learn. Factors affecting children's development and the unique characteristics of young children's thinking are explored. Chapter 3 addresses the implementation of developmentally appropriate curricula in learning environments that are structured to encourage exploration and facilitate learning and development. Characteristics of the environments and materials from which children process information, construct knowledge, and solve problems are examined. The guiding principle considered in chapter 4 is that of viewing the age range of 5 to 8 years as a continuum of development rather than as a series of discrete grade levels. Curricular and instructional strategies for dealing with the similarities and differences in this age span are discussed. Chapter 5 urges educators to consider parent involvement as a critical element in the early childhood curriculum. The benefits of parent involvement for children, parents, teachers, and schools are described. Chapter 6 delves into the relationship between evaluation, the curriculum, and the child, arguing for the use of ongoing evaluation for decision making and curriculum development. Finally, chapter 7 offers a transactional approach to teaching in early childhood. (AC)
