READING: The general public often views early childhood education as either simply “babysitting” or as preparation for later learning. Of course, both viewpoints are simplistic. Deep understanding of child development, best educational practices based on development, emergent curriculum, cultural competence and applications of family systems are necessary for high-quality early education. Highly effective early childhood education is rare in that it requires collaboration and transitions among a variety of systems for children from birth through eight years of age. The SAGE Encyclopedia of Contemporary Early Childhood Education presents in three comprehensive volumes advanced research, accurate practical applications of research, historical foundations and key facts from the field of contemporary early childhood education. Through approximately 425 entries, this work includes all areas of child development – physical, cognitive, language, social, emotional, aesthetic – as well as comprehensive review of best educational practices with young children, effective preparation for early childhood professionals and policy making practices, and addresses such questions as: · How is the field of early childhood education defined? · What are the roots of this field of study? · How is the history of early childhood education similar to yet different from the study of public education? · What are the major influences on understandings of best practices in early childhood education?

The Book Reframing the Emotional Worlds of the Early Childhood Classroom
The Author Samara Madrid
The Publisher Routledge
Release Date2014-10-30
Genre Education
Pages 208
ISBN 9781135051662
Language English, Spanish, And French

READING: This volume examines the emotional world of the early childhood classroom as it affects young children (whose emotional wellbeing is crucial to successful learning), educators (for whom teaching is never a solely cognitive act), parents, and administrators. In a culture where issues such as bullying and teacher burnout comprise major challenges to student success, this book brings together diverse voices (researchers, practitioners, children, and parents) and multiple perspectives (theoretical and personal) to refocus attention on the pivotal role of emotion in schools. To do so, editors Samara Madrid, David Fernie, and Rebecca Kantor envision emotion as a dynamic, fluid, and negotiated construct, performed and produced in the daily lives of children and adults alike. A nuanced yet cohesive analysis, Reframing the Emotional Worlds of the Early Childhood Classroom thus presents a challenge to the overriding concern with quantifiable classroom achievement that increasingly threatens to push the emotional lives of classroom participants to the margins of educational and public discourse.

READING: Early Childhood Curriculum for All Learners: Integrating Play and Literacy Activities is designed to teach early childhood professionals about the latest research on play and early literacy and then to show them practical methods for adapting this research to everyday classroom practices that will encourage the development of learning skills. The authors link solid, play-based research to specific developmentally appropriate practices. By combining these two areas, the text demonstrates that academic learning and play activities are highly compatible, and that children can and do develop academic skills through play. In addition, the text focuses on socio-dramatic play, a recently acknowledged, essential aspect of child-initiated play interactions. It provides specific strategies that link these interactive behaviors with the early academic skills needed for the initial primary grades. Implementation of the information presented in this book will enable children to experience a richer transition into primary education classrooms.

ISBN 9789029514590
Language English, Spanish, And French

READING: In 1936 ging George Orwell naar Spanje om te berichten over de burgeroorlog. Maar in plaats daarvan sloot hij zich aan bij het republikeinse rebellenleger om te vechten tegen de fascisten. In Saluut aan Catalonië doet hij met nietsontziende eerlijkheid verslag van de oorlog en van zijn ervaringen. Op indringende wijze brengt hij die chaotische episode tot leven: de revolutionaire euforie van Barcelona, de moed van gewone Spaanse mannen en vrouwen die naast hem vochten, de verschrikkingen en de verwarring aan het front, de bijna fatale verwonding die hij opliep door een kogel, en het doortrapte verraad van de zogenaamd geallieerde naties. Deze uitgave is voorzien van een inleidende tekst van Geert Mak, ontleend aan zijn vermaarde boek In Europa.

READING: Cal Newport gebruikte de term ‘diep werk’ voor het eerst op zijn populaire blog. Hij doelde daarmee op de noodzaak van geconcentreerd werken om maximaal te kunnen presteren, een vaardigheid die we langzaam zijn kwijtgeraakt. Hij raakte een zenuw: Newports artikelen over dit onderwerp werden honderdduizenden keren gelezen en overgenomen. De meeste mensen laten zich gemakkelijk onderbreken en besteden een groot deel van de dag aan oppervlakkige werkzaamheden. Dit boek bevat talloze inspirerende verhalen en praktische adviezen over hoe je je werk anders kunt organiseren om diep werk een vaste plek te geven en hoe je door oefening je focus kunt terugbrengen. Want alleen door iets met volle aandacht te doen, ontwikkel je je denkkracht en bereik je meer in minder tijd. Het toepassen van diep werk is de beste beslissing die je kunt nemen in een wereld waarin je wordt afgerekend op de waarde die je toevoegt, maar waarin afleiding nog te veel van je tijd opslokt. Diep werk maakt je beter in wat je doet en geeft je meer voldoening.
