Early Childhood Development: A Multicultural Perspective, 6/e addresses both typical and atypical child development from birth through age eight. This text highlights the diversity of child development, preparing professionals to meet the unique needs of children from a wide variety of backgrounds. From reviews of Early Childhood Development: A Multicultural Perspective: “I believe that overall the textbook is unique in its multicultural approach. It is also very reader friendly and contains the information that is essential to understanding the development of children. . . . [T]his text is one of the few that truly does focus on the early development years. Additionally, it is one of the only [texts] that has the multicultural emphasis.” —Keri Maxwell, West Virginia University “I use the text because it is the only one that I have found with a true multicultural focus throughout, not just a “multicultural” chapter at the end of the book. . . . [The W]riting is excellent, especially helpful are the examples and vignettes. . . . [The book] gives multiple examples of how content is applied; gives a review of important points; and gives application ideas at the end of each chapter. [A] strength [of Chapter 18] is looking at family issues (poverty, oppression, etc.) and going through the different age ranges covered in this book. That helped to integrate that knowledge about families and apply it across ages.” —Sandra Newcomb, University of Maryland, College Park “Excellent text. . . . [T]he author has done an outstanding job of presenting key concepts in a readable, understandable, and relational way. Excellent Research into Practice [feature].” –Marilee Cosgrove, California State University, Fullerton

Child and Adolescent Development is an exciting, first edition that offers teacher education a new child development text organized with a chronological approach. This means that descriptions of the physical, cognitive, and social and emotional development of children and adolescents are spiraled throughout the text as discussions examine the characteristics of and the developmental milestones of four major stages of development; infancy and toddlerhood, early childhood, middle childhood, and adolescents.

Unique to this text is how the discussions are written from a global perspective, not only illustrating the universal and diverse contexts in which children and adolescents grow up but also demonstrating how cultural contexts cultivate the development of language and impact children's and adolescent's world views and their growth. In Child and Adolescent Development, knowledgeable and revered authors, Anita Woolfolk and Nancy Perry, explore the implications and applications of the best research in child development.

Child Development and Education bridges the gap between theory and practice, showing those who teach and care for infants, children, and adolescents how to apply developmental research and theory to everyday practice. More so than any other text, Child Development and Education not only describes developmental phenomena--for infants through late adolescence--but also faciliates observations of and analyses of what children say, do, and create, ensuring that educators can make informed decisions that meet children's and adolescent's needs. New to the fifth edition is a sensitivity to the cultural and bioecological nature of development. New features of the text situate children and adolescents in the contexts of their upbringing and articulate the implications of these experiences for educators and other professionals. Illustrated is the diverse nature of development and how it is influenced by social, environmental, and cultural contexts. Also new to this edition is support for teacher licensure preparation. Teacher candidates are alerted to developmental concepts and theorists they need to know, and are provided practice test questions and case studies to review, demonstrating for them how to prepare for their licensure exam.

Through working with many practitioners in different settings, Christine Macintyre offers down-to-earth strategies to enhance the learning of children in their care, and asks: What are the key influences in encouraging children to achieve their potential? Are the four aspects of children’s development equally important and how do they interact? Does the play - based curriculum truly cater for children with a range of abilities and interests e.g. gifted and talented children and those who need extra support? What new ways are there of enhancing learning? How can we be sure that parents appreciate how we support their children in all aspects of their development? With examples and case-studies drawn from a variety of real-life nursery practices, these interesting and thought-provoking scenarios will help enhance and develop the practice of all students and early years teachers.

An integrated language arts approach to literacy development that brings early childhood perspectives on how children learn in pre-kindergarten though grade three, together with explicit teaching of literacy skills and strategies teachers need to make it all work. Pre-service and in-service teachers get a wealth of valuable information for making children active participants in the process of literacy development with this integrated approach to language arts. The book encourages teaching reading, writing, listening, thinking, and viewing at the same time, using each skill to develop the others, and discusses both constructivist problem-solving teaching and more explicit systematic instruction. Through both theoretical and research-based rationales, plus extensive practical applications, renowned author Lesley Mandel Morrow presents literacy development as an active process between children and adults to create meaning and real purpose–and helps pre- and in-service teachers grasp the scope and complexity of early literacy development. This comprehensive, balanced approach to literacy teaching and learning covers oral language development, word study, phonological awareness, phonics, comprehension, listening and writing. The reader is provided with a complete picture of early literacy development.

When teachers are supported to work together in ways that allow them to deepen knowledge of their professional practice, the understandings that emerge from their conversations about quality learning and teaching demonstrate a high level of expertise. Yet such professional knowledge is often deeply embedded within each teacher’s everyday teaching; the tacit knowledge that determines how and why they attend to student learning in certain ways. This book captures the professional knowledge of teachers that developed as the result of an ongoing process of school based change, where teachers began to work differently because they began to think differently about the learning that mattered for their students in their school. The explication of their knowledge of practice became possible due to the ongoing support they received from their school leadership – in most part because leadership trusted them as professionals to responsibly lead student learning. Within this culture of trust and valued collaboration, working alongside external critical friends who supported their professional learning, the teachers engaged in regular, thought provoking and interactive professional dialogue. Together they exposed and challenged each other’s thinking and beliefs about learning and teaching, captured and examined each other’s practice and, ultimately articulated and extended their professional knowledge. The insights about this collaborative learning process and the emergent knowledge and understandings teachers develop about the interactive relationship between learning and teaching, has much to contribute to educational discourse beyond the school setting. Some of that knowledge and the way it looks in practice is shared in this book.

The Fifth Edition of this popular elementary science methods text emphasizes learning science through inquiry, implementation of the Learning Cycle, NSE standards, constructivism, technology, and strategies for teaching diverse learners. Teaching Science for All Children employs an inquiry model throughout, especially apparent in the design of its learning cycle lesson plans. Engaging Questions, Exploration, Explanation, Expansion, and Evaluation make up the “Es” of this modern learning cycle based on the model first invented by Robert Karplus as part of the Science Curriculum Improvement Study in the 1960s. The text provides methods for future teachers to foster awareness and understanding among their students of the nature of science; to construct understandings of and connections between various science content; to encourage application of science inquiry processes in the classroom; and to develop their students’ understanding of the interactions between science, technology, and society. The final sections of the book incorporate Life Science, Physical Science, and Earth and Space Science lessons as a means to convey important pedagogical content knowledge and ideas to implement in the elementary classroom.
