Help future teachers create the best programs for young children ages three through eight
Developmentally Appropriate Curriculum: Best Practices in Early Childhood Education is an all-in-one guide that brings together everything pre-service teachers need to implement an integrated, developmental approach to curriculum-based instruction.
 
The 7th Edition addresses all aspects of classroom life—conceptualization, planning, implementation, and evaluation—for children ages three through eight. This comprehensive, cohesive approach emphasizes the “how” of curriculum development, as well as the “what and why.” With practical, research-based guidelines, sample activities and lesson plans for each curriculum domain, and a focus on teaching methods, readers have the tools they need to translate theory into age-appropriate practice that accommodates individual, social, and cultural differences.
