Description

Implementing a Standards-Based Curriculum in the Early Childhood Classroom demonstrates how pre-service and in-service teachers can develop mathematics, language arts, and integrated curricula suitable for equipping young children with the knowledge, dispositions, and skills needed to operate successfully as 21st century learners. Chapters promote family-school partnerships, and each content area chapter (mathematics, language arts and integrated curriculum) will demonstrate assessment practices proven to be effective for detecting the impact of specific early childhood teaching methods on student learning. 

Reviews

In this essential book, the authors provide research—as well as practical examples for using that research—to implement the Common Core State Standards in early childhood classrooms. Rejecting the narrow use of disconnected subject areas and procedural knowledge, the authors powerfully make the case for integrated curriculum and conceptual understanding. Readers will find this important book useful now and in the future.

—Suzanne L. Krogh, Professor Emerita, Western Washington University

The authors of Implementing a Standards-Based Curriculum in the Early Childhood Classroom make the case that when early childhood educators create learning experiences based on children’s interest, cognitive and social-emotional development, family connections, and rich content knowledge, our children are able to successfully learn and grow in the early childhood classroom. Thus, playful and exploratory experiences in early childhood are not separate from academic standards-based learning, but rather at the heart of it.

—Dr. Debora B. Wisneski, John T. Langan Professor of Early Childhood Education, University of Nebraska at Omaha
