Innovations: Infant and Toddler Development.
Albrecht, Kay; Miller, Linda G.
This book provides teachers of infants and toddlers with an in-depth guide to infant and toddler development, theories of growth and development, and best practices in early childhood education. The chapters are: (1) "Innovations: Infant and Toddler Development," looking at the underlying principles of developmental and interactional theory, and presenting a four-stage model for dealing with children's behaviors; (2) "Separating from Parents and Transitioning to School"; (3) "Connecting with School and Teacher and Making Friends"; (4) "Relating to Self and Others and Exploring Roles"; (5) "Communicating with Parents, Teachers, and Friends"; (6) "Moving Around and Problem-Solving"; and (7) "Expressing Feelings with Parents, Teachers, and Friends." Chapters 2 through 7 provide information on the developmental tasks involved, introduce relevant theorists and their ideas, apply theoretical ideas in a section on best practice, and integrate theory and best practices into the curriculum through the development of a possibility plan. These chapters also list questions, activities, and references, and conclude with a glossary of important terms. The book's appendix includes a master list of best practices and sample forms. (Contains 106 references.) (KB)
