Book Description

Oct. 1 1998 0820437654 978-0820437651 1
Since 1987 the National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC) has embraced Developmentally Appropriate Practice (DAP) as a pedagogical guideline for early childhood education. This book attempts to expand DAP as developmentally and culturally appropriate practice (DCAP) to pay greater attention to cultural influence that forms young individual children's growth and their own learning. Infusing voices of early childhood prospective teachers' DCAP teaching experiences into the texts, the book presents a way to prepare our future teachers who would be able to use DCAP as their pedagogical guide and be more sensitive to multiple/multiethnic perspectives in young children's learning, changes, and growth.

Product Description


«Hyun's work is invaluable to the field of early childhood teacher education as she builds a sound framework for instituting developmentally and culturally appropriate practice in early childhood settings through stories of her own work with prospective teachers. Teacher educators and prospective early childhood teachers will be enriched by her strong theoretical conceptualization of developmentally and culturally appropriate practice, as well as the ways in which Hyun captures and presents the stories of novice teachers struggling with the issues inherent in actualizing developmentally and culturally appropriate pedagogy.» (Nancy Fichtman Dana, The Pennsylvania State University)
