Protecting Children from Inappropriate Practices. ERIC Digest.
Bredekamp, Sue; Shepard, Lorrie
Suggestions for early childhood educators on how to provide developmentally appropriate practices and teaching methods are offered. Suggestions concern: (1) making decisions about entrance and placement; (2) evaluating a program's accomplishment of goals; (3) planning and individualizing curriculum and instruction; and (4) promoting appropriate policies. It is argued that the early childhood profession must agree on issues of developmentally appropriate practices; act to influence policy; and articulate standards for appropriate practice in the form of guidelines for curriculum content and assessment for prekindergarten through third grade classes.
