How Children Learn Mathematics Book Excerpt:

This text has two major purposes. One is diagnostic-to aid in discerning a child's stage of development as a basic for determining the type of mathematics for which he is ready. The second major purpose is to serve the "methods of teaching mathematics" courses in teacher education.l The reader will find this book very different from other methods texts because it is based on how children learn, not how to teach, and it should enable readers to see mathematics from the standpoint of the child as he progresses through the various stages of development.

The Children You Teach Book Excerpt:

The Children You Teach is a book of stories about students and teachers. But it is also a book about children's development. Each chapter tells the true story of a child or teacher facing a dilemma. Weaving in research from psychological science, Susan Engel shows how to look at children through a developmental lens, which can change what happens in the classroom, and transform the craft of teaching. Drawing on her many years as a developmental scientist and classroom teacher, Susan applies theories and studies from developmental psychology to the lives of real children. She summarizes the research and data to help teachers understand the way children think, and then shows how teachers can use that knowledge in the classroom. No plan book or curriculum guide can replace the power and usefulness of thinking about children from a developmental perspective. You can take concrete steps to make child development integral to your daily work with children. Learn to think differently about the children you teach and let your insights guide you as you help them grow.

Teaching Young Children Choices In Theory And Practice Book Excerpt:

This book presents early childhood students and staff with a broad and diverse range of teaching techniques to support children's learning. It examines 26 techniques ranging from simple ones, such as describing and listening, to more complex methods, such as deconstruction and scaffolding. The strategies selected are derived from the best current research knowledge about how young children learn. A detailed evaluation of each strategy enables childcare staff, early childhood teachers and students to expand their repertoire of teaching strategies and to critically evaluate their own teaching in early childhood settings. Vignettes and examples show how early childhood staff use the techniques to support children's learning and help to bring the discussion of each technique to life. Revised and updated in light of the latest research, new features include: * Coverage of the phonics debate * Addition of ICT content * Questions for further discussion * Revision to the chapter on problem solving * Updated referencing throughout Teaching Young Children is key reading for students and experienced early childhood staff working in diverse settings with young children.
