About this product
- SynopsisGives students in-depth knowledge of how young children aged three to six years learn according to theories of Piaget, Vygotsky and social constructivist learning. This text also teaches students how they can introduce an array of available technology to enhance inquiry in the classroom & expand curricula for teaching in pre-school/kindergarten,Inquiry into Math, Science and Technology for Teaching Young Children presents detailed discussion about teaching math, science, and technology for the preschool and kindergarten classrooms. It contains very readable material on understanding the cognitive development of the young child, the use of authentic assessment, and the incorporation of social learning. It then clearly shows the inquiry process so that teachers and future teachers can use this key element in planning curriculum in science and math for the young child. Curriculum models are presented and a wide array of learning experiences in physical science, earth science and biological sciences are detailed. This includes integrating an array of available technology into the classroom to enhance inquiry.,Inquiry into Math, Science and Technology for Teaching Young Children uses current theory as foundation for the rich and varied math and science curriculum in preschool and kindergarten. The curriculum in this text easily embraces developmentally appropriate practice, emergent curriculum, Reggio Emilia and the Project Approach. Students can connect the rich math and science curriculum with the national standards in math and science plus the NAEYC Early Childhood Professional Preparation Standards. By using the ways we know children learn best, students are guided to develop their own curriculum for children while incorporating the national standards. The text guides early childhood students to inquire how children learn by capturing the innate curiosity and emerging thinking skills of young children. The writing of this text invites students to explore math and science inquiry themselves, to engage in the curiosity and innovative thinking of young children, and become immersed in their new concept of teaching through experiencing children's learning.
