A Child Goes Forth
For Curriculum in Early Childhood courses.With its coverage organized around eleven areas of experience that are critical to a child's development, this practical text shows prospective teachers of children ages 2 to 5 how the basic characteristics of young children should influence instructional planning, curriculum, and expectations. Coverage incorporates the best of traditional methods and the brightest ideas of today's "cutting edge" thinkers into a cohesive presentation that emphasizes the individuality of each child and the idea that a relaxed, unstructured, yet carefully-planned atmosphere is most conducive to effective teaching. The result is a volume of solid, practical advice and encouragement for students who love children and want to help them "go forth" successfully.
