Teaching Adults, Revisited: Active Learning for Early Childhood Educators
Jones, Elizabeth
National Association for the Education of Young Children
This book follows master educator Elizabeth (Betty) Jones as she teaches an introductory course in early childhood education. She actively engages the students, encouraging them to make decisions, ask questions, and engage in collaborative problem solving--herself modeling the behaviors that should be practiced by adults working with young children. Successor to her highly respected "Teaching Adults" (NAEYC, 1986), this new work reflects Betty Jones's ever-evolving wisdom and insights into teaching teachers, as well as the diversity of perspective that adults learners bring to college classrooms. Following a prologue, chapters in the book include: (1) The Class Sessions; (2) How It Can Be Done: A Last Reflection with My Colleagues; and (3) Why It Should Be Done: A Personal Perspective. Appendices include: (1) Grading Plan & Grading Points Record; and (2) Analysis of Play Spaces: An Observation Guide. A list of references is also provided.
