Expands on the teaching of developmentally appropriate practice through the use of interactive case study and discussion.
This casebook is a companion resource for faculty and trainers to use in conjunction with the fourth edition of Developmentally Appropriate Practice in Early Childhood Programs Serving Children from Birth Through Age 8. Through study and discussion of cases based on real classrooms across the entire early childhood spectrum, readers engage in critical thinking around developmentally appropriate practice (DAP) to improve teaching practice and support learning for all children.
Cases provide engaging narratives with a specific purpose and objectives for learning. Each case aligns with specific DAP content and provides provocative questions. To reinforce equitable teaching practice, the cases cover a diverse range of children and family profiles, types of educational programs, and environmental settings and topics.
