Developmentally Appropriate Practice: Buzz Words or Best Practice?
Smrekar, Jocelynn; Hansen, Andrea
Texas Child Care, v2 n1 p8-11 Sum 1998
Developmentally appropriate practice (DAP) concerns teaching techniques which identify and foster developmental needs of children individually and in groups from birth to age 8. In a DAP classroom, play is a central focus, as it enables children to make sense of their world, develops social and cultural understanding, and fosters flexible and divergent thinking. (LBT)
