SUPERB Tool Fills A Niche. Aug. 28 2009
By Reginald Williams - Published on
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.
