9780130388407: Skills for Preschool Teachers (9th Edition)

For over two decades, Skills for Preschool Teachers has prepared teachers, teaching assistants, college students, classroom volunteers, and CDA candidates to work with children three-to-five years of age in preschools, center-based child care, Head Starts, and pre-kindergartens.  The skills for working with young children are presented in 13 easily-readable, fact-filled chapters, each of which is based on one of the CDA "functional areas": safe, healthy, learning environment, physical, cognitive, communication, creative, self-concept, social, guidance, family, program management, and professionalism. Its use of practical checklists for observing children and the classroom environment has been a hallmark of this text, as well as its use of the latest children’s picture books as lead-ins to every curriculum area covered. Practitioners will appreciate the appropriate NAEYC Program Standards in every chapter, as well as a section on inclusion and how to help children with disabilities succeed in classroom activities. New topics in this ninth edition include: how to respond to bullying in the classroom and playground; an expanded discussion of brain research and cognitive development; critical information on helping “dual-language learners” who are learning English as well as their own home language; and creating a professional portfolio. Proven in content and clearly written, this sound resource provides the practitioner with solid, practical tips, new research, and empirically-based methods and strategies for working with and teaching young children in an array of educational settings.

From the Publisher:

Through the use of a unique Teacher Skills Checklist, this text guides students, step-by-step, through the entire range of skills they'll need as Early Childhood professionals. The new edition of this popular volume again focuses on training students to help young children become independent and self-directed in their learning...while, at the same time, helping students develop their own independence. Each of the text's thirteen self-contained chapters is matched to one of thirteen functional areas in which proficiency is required for CDA certification. Each chapter provides thorough background on the theory behind the skill being covered, as well as a number of practical ideas for putting that theory into practice in a variety of early childhood educational settings. This text has helped prepare thousands of future teachers to work successfully with three- to five-year-olds. Its strong teacher orientation and informal, enjoyable tone help maintain its position as one of the most popular texts in the field.
