Developmentally Appropriate Practice: Myths and Facts.
Galen, Harlene
Principal, v73 n5 p20-22 May 1994
Debunks various myths and misperceptions concerning developmentally appropriate practices. Developmental appropriateness is a philosophy, not a curriculum. Despite using alternative learning strategies such as guided play, teachers are in control, facilitate real academic learning, and build on what they already know. DAP is universal and can accommodate the needs of children from varied cultural and economic backgrounds. (11 references.) (MLH)
