Go beyond reading about early learning theories and see what they look like in action in modern programs and teacher practices. With classroom vignettes and colourful photographs, this book makes the works of Jean Piaget, Erik Erikson, Lev Vygotsky, Abraham Maslow, John Dewey, Howard Gardner, and Louise Derman-Sparks visible, accessible, and easier to understand. Each theory is defined-through text and visuals-in relation to cognitive, social-emotional, and physical developmental domains. Use this book to build a true comprehension of the foundations of early learning theories.
