Feature

A highly effective pedagogical framework in each chapter of 'What?', 'How?' and 'When and Why?' sections ensures students know about each technique described and the most appropriate time to implement them. The developmental considerations associated with each technique is highlighted in every chapter. Equity considerations are covered in each chapter and include discussions of race and culture, disability and additional needs, and gender. Reflective practice is highlighted at the end of each chapter, providing questions and activities for critical thinking. 'Improving Teaching in Practice' sections at the end of each chapter prompts thinking on applying practical strategies.

In acknowledgement of the growing interest in children's rights and early childhood education as a socially progressive democratic endeavour, the third edition includes three new chapters in the Specialist Section - Chapter 21: Decolonising and Chapter 23: Democratising NEW! Feature on 'Current issues and debates' in relation to the various techniques discussed. UPDATED! The text has been thoroughly updated using recent primary research sources from around the globe for all chapters (including research from the neurosciences and socio-cultural perspectives). This also includes ICT issues.
