Product Description

From the Back Cover

Case Studies in Early Childhood Education

Rachel Ozretich, Linn Benton Community College

Linda Burt

Susan M. Doescher, Linn Benton Community College

Martha Foster, Linn Benton Community College

 

Helps translate the guidelines of the NAEYC into actual practices.

 

The NAEYC’s guidelines for developmentally appropriate practices are an essential tool to help teachers distinguish between proper and improper teaching methods and in preparing their early childhood curriculum.  This book of cases was written to go one more step in helping teachers–by breaking down these guidelines into actual classroom practices so that pre-service teachers entering their first practicum already have a vision of what developmentally appropriate practices are and how to implement them. 

 

The cases in the book feature 

  • Classroom challenges and also their possible solutions
  • A diversity of children from diverse families
  • An accompanying matrix that provides the age groups and topics involved
  • Questions that are designed to stimulate class discussion and promote critical thinking
  • A variety of community settings  

Rachel Ozretich has been a teacher, researcher, and policy analyst in early childhood education for 24 years, working for Linn Benton Community College (LBCC), Oregon State University (OSU), and the Oregon Commission on Children and Families. Linda Burt was a researcher and faculty instructor at OSU for many years. Sue Doescher has taught and conducted research in early childhood education for over 30 years and currently teaches at LBCC. Martha Foster teaches practicum classes at LBCC and has taught full-time in LBCC’s child development laboratory for 19 years.

SUPERB Tool Fills A Niche. Aug. 28 2009
By Reginald Williams - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
There are many books on the market in early childhood education with many different choices for almost any topic that you need. Every once in a while, though, a resource comes along and filles that niche that you have been waiting to fill for ages. This book does that.

For teacher educators like myself, I take great pains to give my students for reflective purposes real-life problems and situations that early childhood teachers face. Ozretich, Burt, Doescher, and Foster's book is full of them. All of the grades are covered (Preschool-Grade 3). Domains are exhibited (social domain, cognitive domain, emotional domain, etc.), and different cultural situations are presented.

Some of the better case studies are divided into several parts. First, the reader is introduced to a setting and a problem that the teacher suddenly faces. Following this introduction, the author's present several questions that help the reader to analyze situation toward a solution. The next section of the case study tells how the teacher tackled the problem resulting in varying degrees of success and failure. This particular approach stimulates much discussion among students because some of the studies (Case 19) can be a bit controversial.

At $16, this book will be well worth the trouble.
