Publisher Comments:

Early Childhood Education Today provides the current and comprehensive coverage you expect, plus an advanced assessment and remediation system to support student achievement. New accommodations/inclusion content, NAEYC standards, and curriculum coverage are three other significant additions to this revised edition.  Other hallmarks of this leading text are its exceptionally strong coverage of professionalism and its profiles of programs and professionals.   

 

NEW Web-Based Assessment and Remediation Site. A variety of assessment items, supported by video, research articles, and other content from MyEducationLab, provide practice opportunities and scaffold learning. Contains pre- and posttest multiple-choice items, and  essay-format Building Teaching Skills, and Homework and Exercises.

 

NEW Accommodations Sections with Strategies for Diverse Learners. New sections in each chapter provide strategies to accommodate learners with disabilities, English learners, and those with other special needs in inclusive classrooms. In addition, current research-based content and examples of teaching diverse learners are woven through all chapters by two early childhood special education college professors.

 

Chapter Content Aligned with NAEYC Standards.  Each chapter begins with NAEYC standards to help students understand how these standards connect with practice and impact quality in teaching and learning.  

 

Expanded Coverage of Environments and Curriculum. Each age-specific chapter contains expanded discussions of developmentally appropriate environments and curriculum for young children, along with illustrations and tables to make the content accessible. Curriculum content helps students understand the reality of today’s early childhood classrooms.

Synopsis:

"I think my students at the lower division level would find it manageable, just as students in the upper divisions would find it easy to read. Visually, it is so appealing and there are so many additional resources that accompany it such as links to web sites, discussion questions, suggested activities, etc... Competency Builders: These are a strength of the book. You could design lab assignments around these and practical application assignments that students could put in their professional portfolios...He [George Morrison] really does have his finger on the pulse of the field. I don't think you can get a more up-to-date text than this." (Stacey York; Minneapolis Community & Technical College)

"George Morrison has a gift for combining a writing style that engages the reader with the presentation of content...It is the writing style that sets this text apart from the others in a positive way." (Mary Cordell; Navarro College)

"The key strengths are the amount and depth of information available! There is an amazing amount of detail here. The text does weave together Early Childhood Education and Foundations effectively. The supplemental materials add even greater strength. This is very comprehensive." (James Barta; Utah State University)
