Encyclopedia of early childhood education( Book )

13 editions published between 1992 and 2014 in English and held by 1,242 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This Encyclopedia is a reference work about young children in the USA, designed for use by policy makers, community planners, parents of young children, teacher and early childhood educators, programme and school administrators, among others. The field of early childhood education has been affected by changes taking place in the nation's economy, demographics, schools, communities and families that influence political and professional decisions. These diverse historical, political economic, socio-cultural, intellectual and educational influences on early childhood education have hindered the development of a clear definition of the field. The Encyclopedia provides an opportunity to define the field against the background of these influences and relates the field of early childhood education to its diverse contexts and to the cultural and technological resources currently affecting it

A Review of Research on Play by Doris Pronin Fromberg( Book )

1 edition published in 1999 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Uninformed of the power of play as an educational tool, many people view play as a waste of time and call for a return to teaching basic academic skills during the period of early childhood. This chapter demonstrates that play is a major vehicle for learning, focusing on the dynamics of sociodramatic interaction that are integral to understanding related aspects of development and education. The chapter begins with a consideration of the definition of play and proposes that young children's play is symbolic, meaningful, active, pleasurable, voluntary and intrinsically motivated, rule-governed, and episodic. The essay discusses major psychological theoretical positions regarding play, including Piagetian and Vygotskian theories, and cultural perspectives conceptualizing play as a categorization frame and considering the importance of play contexts. The transformational dynamics of play are considered through an examination of script theory, narrative structures, theory of mind, and complexity theory. The chapter continues with an examination of the relationship of play to social, imagination, cognitive, and literacy development. The chapter addresses the implications of play research for curriculum development for young children, including ways of encouraging play through modeling, planning with children, and playing with language; and using the power of play to strengthen worthwhile, meaningful learning and cooperation with others. Contains approximately 150 references. (Kb)

The text includes classroom activities that connect science learning to mathematics, technology, art, and literacy. Book Features: Shows teachers how to address fundamental biology, chemistry, physics, and Earth science concepts using easy-to-find objects. Describes constructivist learning environments that are aligned with emerging data on brain development. Includes guidance for adopting approaches and instructional strategies consistent with NSTA, NSES, and NAEYC guidelines
