20 editions published between 2007 and 2008 in English and held by 612 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Young children are social beings. They grow and develop in diverse social and environmental contexts that profoundly affect who they are and what they will become. In this, the first volume of Springers Educating the Young Child: Advances in Theory and Research, Implications for Practice, a group of distinguished authors examine an array of interpersonal relationships that are formative in shaping childhood: bonds with adult family members, ties with siblings, interaction with peer groups, and connections with caregivers, teachers, administrators, and service providers. The socio-emotional development of young children has been a significant area of study for decades and early childhood is widely recognized not only as the period during which affective development originates but also as the phase in which the future course of life is set into motion. As lifes pace and complexity continues to increase, expectations for childrens abilities to control themselves and interact effectively with diverse individuals and groups continue to grow. This, the first volume in a series of edited books designed to synthesize research, theory, and practice, will focus on key interpersonal relationships affecting the young child. A distinguished group of authors will examine a wide array of relationships that affect the child today and influence the adult tomorrowimportant bonds such as those between caregivers and infants; among siblings; between literate adults and the language-learning child; between the homeless and those providing support services, between principals and young students; and between recently immigrated preschoolers, teachers, and families, to name a few."--Publisher's website

Teaching compassion : humane education in early childhood by Mary Renck Jalongo( )

12 editions published between 2013 and 2015 in English and Undetermined and held by 420 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In response to highly publicized incidents of school violence, educators across the United States and in many other nations are seeking effective ways to prevent and modify aggressive and anti-social behaviors in students. One of the major recommendations of the research is that efforts to prevent cruelty need to begin early, during the early childhood years of birth through age eight. The focus of Teaching Compassion: Humane Education in Early Childhood is guiding young children to accept responsibility for and to be kind in their interactions with fellow human beings, animals and the environment. Although humane education is a relatively new concept in the field of early childhood education, professionals in the field are very familiar with many of the related concepts, including: promoting positive interpersonal interactions, teaching children the skills of self-regulation, giving children experience in caring for living things and protecting the environment. This edited volume is an interdisciplinary compendium of professional wisdom gathered from experts in the fields of education, child development, science, psychology, sociology and humane organizations. As the book amply documents, the concept of humane education is powerful, integrative, timely and appropriate in work with young children. Teaching Compassion: Humane Education in Early Childhood shows how it is possible for adults dedicated to the care and education of young children to balance attention to the cognitive and affective realms and, in so doing, to elevate the overall quality of early childhood programs for children, families and communities

Young children and families in the information age : applications of technology in early childhood by Kelly L Heider( )

18 editions published between 2014 and 2015 in English and held by 356 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This edited book presents the most recent theory, research and practice on information and technology literacy as it relates to the education of young children. Because computers have made it so easy to disseminate information, the amount of available information has grown at an exponential rate, making it impossible for educators to prepare students for the future without teaching them how to be effective information managers and technology users. Although much has been written about information literacy and technology literacy in secondary education, there is very little published research about these literacies in early childhood education. Recently, the National Association for the Education of Young Children and the Fred Rogers Center for Early Learning and Children?s Media at Saint Vincent College published a position statement on using technology and interactive media as tools in early childhood programs. This statement recommends more research "to better understand how young children use and learn with technology and interactive media and also to better understand any short- and long-term effects." Many assume that today?s young children are "digital natives" with a great understanding of technology. However, children may know how to operate digital technology but be unaware of its dangers or its value to extend their abilities. This book argues that information and technology literacy include more than just familiarity with the digital environment. They include using technology safely and ethically to demonstrate creativity and innovation; to communicate and collaborate; to conduct research and use information; and to think critically, solve problems and make decisions
The arts in children's lives : aesthetic education in early childhood by Mary Renck Jalongo( Book )

6 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 307 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The purpose of this book is to unify the arts into a holistic concept of aesthetic education for young children. The book's aims are: to convince teachers that the arts are for everyone--and essential to the daily curriculum; to show teachers how the arts build children's interest, motivation and learning in all subject areas; to demonstrate how teachers can draw on a wide array of arts resources to enrich their curriculum; and to address the developmentally appropriateness of arts activities and show how they support the goals of multicultural education. This book provides many examples of teachers who designed an arts-based curriculum and offers practical, concrete suggestions about evaluating children's growth in key areas of the arts: music and movement, art and craft, play and enactment. For professionals involved in the arts education of young children

10 editions published in 2016 in English and Undetermined and held by 258 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book offers systematic instruction and evidence-based guidance to academic authors. It demystifies scholarly writing and helps build both confidence and skill in aspiring and experienced authors. The first part of the book focuses on the author's role, writing's risks and rewards, practical strategies for improving writing, and ethical issues. Part Two focuses on the most common writing tasks: conference proposals, practical articles, research articles, and books. Each chapter is replete with specific examples, templates to generate a first draft, and checklists or rubrics for self-evaluation. The final section of the book counsels graduate students and professors on selecting the most promising projects; generating multiple related, yet distinctive, publications from the same body of work; and using writing as a tool for professional development. Written by a team that represents outstanding teaching, award-winning writing, and extensive editorial experience, the book leads teacher/scholar/authors to replace the old "publish or perish" dictum with a different, growth-seeking orientation: publish and flourish" -- OhioLink

Children, dogs and education : caring for, learning alongside, and gaining support from canine companions by Mary Renck Jalongo( )

10 editions published in 2018 in English and Undetermined and held by 232 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book brings together authoritative information about the child/dog bond as it is manifested with family dogs, visiting therapy dogs, and service dogs trained to assist children with disabilities. Despite the widely accepted view that participating in a dog's care and interacting with dogs in behaviorally healthy ways is a route to becoming responsible and compassionate, research on this complex dynamic is difficult to design, time-consuming to collect, and challenging to analyze. This volume synthesizes theory, research, and practice, bringing all to bear upon child/dog interactions in homes, schools, libraries, and the community at large. Children, Dogs and Education serves as a handbook for a diverse group of adults who seek to build positive relationships between children and dogs-parents/families, professional dog trainers, teachers, librarians, mental health professionals, health care professionals, and university faculty. The study of interactions between human and nonhuman animals has captured the imagination of an international community of researchers from many different fields and professions. Even though dogs are ubiquitous in the lives of most children, studies of children's interactions with dogs in families and communities are lacking. Most of the previous research on the human-canine bond has focused on adolescents and adults or, even when younger children are the focus, it has tended to rely on parents to speak for children. There are three features of this book that make it unique. First, it goes beyond exploring the child/dog bond to examine additional important issues, including: children's concepts of responsible care, their ability to interpret dogs' behavioral cues, and their ideas about canine behavioral issues/training. Second, unlike most other work to date, it represents children's voices through cases, interviews, and drawings. Finally, the contributors to this edited work use their collective wisdom to draw educational implications and suggest direction in preparing the next generation of dog guardians
Physical activity and health promotion in the early years : effective strategies for early childhood educators( )

9 editions published between 2018 and 2019 in English and held by 213 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book focuses on improving well-being among young children. It provides a theoretical base explaining why physical activity is important, and offers practical strategies for increasing health and well-being in early childhood settings. It takes ancient wisdom on the mind and body connection, applies it to the youngest children, and supports it with current empirical and international evidence--all with an eye toward improving wellness across the lifespan. The many topics discussed in the book include children's motor skills, movement, interaction, physical literacy, the use of video games, dog ownership, developmental delays, as well as strategies to improve physical activities in the classroom and broader contexts. In recent years, children's health has become a priority worldwide. Topics such as "screen time" "sedentary behavior" and "childhood obesity" have become important issues everywhere- in the news, in schools, in community and commercials settings, and among health care providers. Limiting sedentary behavior, increasing physical activity, and maintaining a nutritious diet are three fundamental needs during early childhood. Preschool years are a time when children begin to explore the world around them, and develop more vivid understandings of their surroundings. As this book shows, the early years may be the best time to teach wellness concepts and assist young children in establishing healthy lifestyle habits."--Back cover
