Moving and Learning for the Young Child. Presentations from the Early Childhood Conference "Forging the Linkage between Moving and Learning for Preschool Children" (Washington, D.C., December 1-4, 1988).
Stinson, William J., Ed.
These papers focus on four themes: (1) young children: active learners; (2) physical education: the forgotten aspect of early childhood education; (3) dance: bringing movement as art into the early childhood curriculum; and (4) the child as an energetic, moving learner. Common threads of emphasis were woven through the content of the presentations: movement is learning for all children; movement is both an end in itself and a means to an end; the child is central to the learning process; movement and learning are for all children; and education for young children is an integrated curriculum.
