Summary

Developmentally Appropriate Practice: Curriculum and Development in Early Education, 3e is a thoughtful and comprehensive reference that is now even more effective with the addition of several new features and enhanced content. The book takes a topical approach and assumes some basic child development knowledge/experience, and is intended as a guide for thoughtful consideration of classroom and caregiver practices. In the first section, developmentally appropriate practice is discussed and explored, including an in-depth, extended section on the theory and research of play. Subsequent sections address environments such as physical, social/emotional, and cognitive/language. The coverage of these important environments is comprehensive and individually addresses appropriate practice for all early childhood age groups. The fifth section moves into a discussion of making changes for the teachers and caregivers and how to gain support for those changes. Well-known curriculum approaches are also explored in-depth, allowing the reader to understand how these approaches fit into the principles of developmentally appropriate practice. Some new features include "What Would You Do?" and "Think About It" sections that encourage further thought and discussion, as well as current reference and reading suggestions to allow the reader to continue the learning process on their own.

Benefits:

  • What Would You Do sections-real-life situations and examples in each chapter for various age groups that are common, and urge the student to reflect on and learn how to handle these situations
  • Think About It chapter sections provide questions and activities that encourage the student to apply chapter material
  • Includes Scenarios and Examples-all key principles are illustrated and discussed to encourage understanding
  • Refers to Professional Standards-students are provided with the most current information in the field
  • Emphasis on Best Practices promotes professional development and action
