Early Childhood Education: History, Theory, and Practice
Morgan, Harry
Rowman & Littlefield Education
In this book, the author covers the history, theory, and practices that influence early childhood education along with an emphasis on infant and toddler care and education. He also presents a comparison of the conflict between education planners who support early childhood studies and state school systems whose cost-saving measures are dismantling traditional early childhood programs to conform to their misinterpretation of the No Child Left Behind Act. This book provides: Descriptions of child-centered teaching; A description of the role of the government in providing educational support; Recommended instructional strategies; and Guidance for home schooling parents. This book will be of interest to professors, undergraduate and graduate students, and parents. Following a preface, this book is divided into eight chapters: (1) Historical Perspectives; (2) Theoretical Perspectives; (3) Assessment in Early Childhood; (4) How We Know; (5) Public Policy; (6) Developing Literacy in Early Childhood; (7) Play; and (8) The Future of Early-Childhood Education. Also included are: Glossary; Bibliography; Subject Index; and Name Index.
