In Part III, child guidance theories are examined, and the final chapter features a model for creating an eclectic, personalized guidance style.

From the Back Cover:

Preparing students to make developmentally appropriate guidance decisions in the classroom

 

Based on her belief that adults need to have realistic expectations of children, Marian Marion’s Guidance of Young Children emphasizes understanding young children’s development, using a developmentally appropriate approach to guidance, and thinking critically in making wise guidance decisions. Her conversational and direct writing style with concise definitions is a favorite of students and instructors alike. Content is grounded in research and experience.

 

With a case-study approach, case study analyses, rich examples on every page, and scenarios throughout the book and ancillaries, the entire Marion package provides students with a wealth of opportunities to observe how guidance is applied to situations involving infants through 8-year-olds and to apply theories and strategies themselves. Her conversational and direct writing style with concise definitions is a favorite of students and instructors alike, and the content is grounded in research and experience.

 

Among other things, after reading this text, students will understand:

  • the difference between indirect and direct guidance,
  • the major guidance theories and how they relate to guidance,
  • the essential role of observation,
  • adult guidance styles,
  • how to minimize stress and create resilience,
  • how to help students develop authentic self-esteem,
  • how to help children manage anger,
  • factors in violent behavior and aggression and how to prevent them,
  • how to help children develop compassion, and

Book Description Prentice Hall, 2006. Softcover. Book Condition: Neu. Unbenutzte Restauflage Unbenutzt. Schnelle Lieferung, Kartonverpackung. Abzugsfähige Rechnung. Bei Mehrfachbestellung werden die Versandkosten anteilig erstattet. - For courses in guidance and management of young children. Based on the idea that childhood professionals, like physicians, should "first, do no harm," this popular, student-friendly text exemplifies a positive, constructivist approach to guidance that respects, protects, and helps children become self-responsible, competent, independent, cooperative people who like themselves and have strong values. Content is based on understanding the authoritative style of caregiving, understanding child development to make guidance decisions, and on observing behavior. The author never mandates a "cookbook" of techniques for guiding children, but rather, encourages students to use the Decision-Making Model of Child Guidance - a model that evolves from an understanding of a variety of child guidance theories, including those of Piaget, Vygotsky, Rogers, and Adler. Students will learn not only how to guide prosocial behavior and organize a developmentally appropriate classroom environment, but also how to minimize challenging and violent or agressive behavior, and how to help children express anger and cope with stress. 400 pp. Englisch.
