Lessons From Years of Caring About Young Children : Learning from Teaching
Lessons From Years of Caring For Young Children discusses a wide range of early childhood education topics, including diversity, discipline, curriculum, self-reflection, professionalism, and appropriate early care and education environments. Each chapter prepares pre or in-service teachers to reflect on their attitudes, emotions, and the teaching methods they already use, and think about why some ideas may or may not work with children and families in their programs. Included throughout are valuable personal insights from the author's more than 30 years as a preschool/kindergarten teacher, director of a campus child care center, and teacher educator.
