Resources for Developmentally Appropriate Practice: Recommendations from the Profession.
Perry, Gail, Ed.; Duru, Mary S., Ed.
Developmentally appropriate practice continuously evolves, as does the need of professionals to have resources to encourage and bolster developmentally appropriate practices. This book provides an annotated resource bibliography based on the recommendations of early childhood professionals. The book is organized into three parts. Part 1 includes resources that define the concept of developmentally appropriate practice, beginning with its historical roots, key concepts and issues, and research. Part 2 provides resources related to children and their families, including resources on cultural differences, practices that value diversity, partnerships with families, and the developmental and theoretical bases of early childhood practice. Part 3 includes resources to support appropriate practices by teachers and caregivers in varied settings, addressing practice components with children in preschool and primary grades, infants and toddlers, family child care, and school-age children. Also listed in Part 3 are materials in Spanish and other languages, videorecordings, and Internet Web sites. (KB)
