Summary Read First Chapter image missing

Combines research and practice on integrated developmentally appropriate curriculum that helps theorists, researchers, parents, and teachers understand how to match early childhood teaching practices to the integrated manner that young children naturally think and learn.

This volume combines research and practice on integrated developmentally appropriate curriculum in a manner that will assist theorists, researchers, parents, school administrators, and teachers understand how to match early childhood teaching practices to the integrated manner that young children naturally think and learn. The book features specialists in each of the traditional curriculum areas (e.g., math, science, literacy) who share their expertise on how to accomplish this in practical and meaningful ways based on NAEYC and other professional organization guidelines. What an integrated curriculum means for assessment, children with disabilities, guidance, parenting, social development, and multi-cultural persepctices in early childhood education is also covered.

"I have one major regret regarding this volume--'I didn't develop it!' The NAEYC DAP (National Association for the Education of Young Children, Developmentally Appropriate Practice) guidelines, while helpful, do not provide the level of specificity needed by classroom teachers in implementing an integrated DAP curriculum. We desperately need volumes that present, in a practical and doable manner, research/theory-based ideas for implementing and integrating developmentally appropriate curricula in programs for young children. Without them, the optimism created in the profession's first consensus standards will soon be lost. This volume does the trick!" -- James L. Hoot, Director, Early Childhood Research Center, State University of New York at Buffalo
