Developmentally Appropriate Practice in Early Childhood Programs Serving Children from Birth through Age 8. Third Edition
Copple, Carol, Ed.; Bredekamp, Sue, Ed.
National Association for the Education of Young Children
Since the first edition in 1987, National Association for the Education of Young Children's book "Developmentally Appropriate Practice in Early Childhood Programs" has been an essential resource for the early child care field. Now fully revised and expanded, the 2009 version comes with a supplementary CD containing readings on key topics, plus video examples showing developmentally appropriate practice in action. Based on what the research says about development, learning, and effective practices, as well as what experience tells us about teaching intentionally, "DAP" articulates the principles that should guide our decision making. Chapters describe children from birth through age 8 in detail, with extensive examples of appropriate practice for infant/toddler, preschool, kindergarten, and primary levels. Contents of this book include: (1) To Be an Excellent Teacher (Carol Copple and Sue Bredekamp); (2) Development in the First Three Years of Life; (3) Developmentally Appropriate Practice in the Infant and Toddler Years--Ages 0-3: Examples to Consider; (4) Developmentally Appropriate Practice in the Preschool Years--Ages 3-5: An Overview (Heather Biggar Tomlinson and Marilou Hyson); (5) Developmentally Appropriate Practice in the Preschool Years--Ages 3-5: Examples to Consider; (6) Developmentally Appropriate Practice in the Kindergarten Year--Ages 5-6: An Overview (Heather Biggar Tomlinson); (7) Developmentally Appropriate Practice in the Kindergarten Year--Ages 5-6: Examples to Consider; (8) Developmentally Appropriate Practice in the Primary Grades--Ages 6-8: An Overview (Heather Biggar Tomlinson); (9) Developmentally Appropriate Practice in the Primary Grades--Ages 6-8: Examples to Consider; and (10) Frequently Asked Questions about Developmentally Appropriate Practice.
