Learning Happens: 30 Video Vignettes of Babies and Toddlers Learning School Readiness Skills through Everyday Interactions. [DVD and Guide]
Lerner, Claire; Parlakian, Rebecca
ZERO TO THREE
This DVD (duration: 1 hour 53 seconds) features 30 video vignettes that show parents and children--aged birth to 3 years--interacting during everyday play and routines. These vignettes, some in English and some in Spanish, are designed to be tools for professionals to use both in direct work with families and for training other early child development professionals. They act as catalysts for discussion about all aspects of early development and provide vivid illustrations of the significant influence parents have in getting their young children ready for school. The vignettes provide examples of how development unfolds from birth to age 3, young children acquire school readiness skills through everyday interactions and activities, and parents and caregivers support children's early learning and development through daily interactions and activities. The vignettes illustrate many critical aspects of child development, including: communication, literacy, fathering, feeding/mealtimes, play, routines, self-control, self-confidence, and thinking skills. The accompanying booklet includes information about each vignette and suggested discussion questions for using them with parents or in training early childhood professionals.
