Pedagogy and Space: Design Inspirations for Early Childhood Classrooms
Zane, Linda M.
The intersection of design and learning is a new and burgeoning area of interest in all levels of education. "Pedagogy and Space" combines architectural design information with early childhood theory to enhance children's learning and educators' experience within the space. Filled with colorful, inspiring photographs of intentionally designed spaces, you will get many ideas that can be applied to your own classroom-without needing to start from scratch or spend a lot of money. Based on the groundbreaking architectural work "A Pattern Language: Towns, Buildings, Construction," this new resource provides an overview of important design patterns in early childhood environments. Use this book to guide changes in your space that will immediately benefit your interactions with children and improve the quality of your time together!
