Reviews - What do customers think about Social & Emotional Development: Connecting Science and Practice in Early Childhood Settings?

Make every day into a day where children learn something invaluable  Jul 10, 2008
The earlier years of a child's life make them a sponge for knowledge; being in child care centers is simply another educational experience, even when doing things that are not typically viewed as educational. "Social & Emotional Development: Connecting Science and Practice in Early Childhood Settings" is a guide for day care center educators to making every day into a day where children learn something invaluable. Valuable lessons include teaching children how to find security in trusted adults, how to form good friendships, and how to control their behavior. "Social & Emotional Development: Connecting Science and Practice in Early Childhood Settings" is a top pick for community library child psychology collections and highly recommended for child care professionals.
 
A Increasingly Ignored Topic Needing Re-emphasis  Feb 16, 2008
From now until we see a distinct paradigm shift, the overarching influence of the No Child Left Behind Act will continue to bully early childhood education away from fostering socio-emotional development and toward a nearly exclusive focus on academic development. From this point until forever, I will always oppose such a singular viewpoint on education. I think you can correctly foster both equally, and this book should give teachers clues on how to accomplish this goal.

In an unusual way, Riley and her co-authors aim to show us how to use science (a logical field closely related to math during these early years) to model social and emotional growth and maturity. I cannot remember seeing this before. It is a fascinating discourse.

Each chapter shows through scientific exploration how to gain perspective on ideas like attachment or friendship or self-regulation through constructivist type experiences.

Not only is this book research-based but also it is quite inexpensive. Even if you do not agree with the approach, I think this book is worth looking at especially if you want to keep academics in your classroom in an appropriate way.
