Nature education with young children : integrating inquiry and practice( Book )

7 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 207 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Nature Education with Young Children is a thoughtful, sophisticated teacher resource that blends theory and practice on nature education, children's inquiry-based learning, and reflective teaching. The book's guiding conceptual framework is founded upon the integration of four key ideas for effective and transformative nature education: The power and value of equity and access to nature education ; Effective teaching encompasses child development domains and integrates ECE curriculum ; Children learn best through inquiry-based and child-centered teaching ; Powerful teaching is founded upon teacher inquiry and reflection. Implementing nature study is one critical way that educators can integrate more science learning across the ECE curriculum and do so in an active, discovery-based manner. Nature Education with Young Children strives for an American version of what the Reggio Emilia educators do so well: creating a seamless integration of science concepts into the daily intellectual investigations that occur in classrooms everywhere."--Provided by publisher

Co-published with the Association for Childhood Education International (ACEI), Educational Change in International Early Childhood Contexts: Crossing Borders of Reflection examines the role of teacher reflection in a variety of educational contexts worldwide. Using a case study approach that integrates research, theory, policy, and practice, international contributors show how, in some settings, local traditions and values are honored while, in others, foreign educational ideas and programs become modified to suit local needs. Cases from Japan, China, Palestine, South Africa, Kenya, Finland, Italy, and New Zealand are discussed, as well as models from the United States. Through its thorough investigation into teacher reflection practices throughout the world, Educational Change in International Early Childhood Contexts: Crossing Borders of Reflection focuses on the transformative value of these practices to promote change in early childhood education. Framing commentary from Linda R. Kroll and Daniel R. Meier provides context and places the case studies in conversation with one another, allowing for productive international comparisons in this dynamic collection"

Building a Literacy Community: The Role of Literacy and Social Practicein Early Childhood Program Reform by Daniel R Meier( Book )

1 edition published in 1997 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Preschool can be an opportunity to emphasize literacy teaching and learning and to develop the role of "literacy as community," rather than being only kindergarten preparation. The results of two studies view children's literacy development as a dynamic, developmental process involving language, thought, and social interaction. In Meier's ongoing "Urban Study," conducted at an all-day, year-round child development center in northern California, questions are asked about literacy as community in an urban setting, ways to create an extra layer of literacy, and how literacy as community can contribute to early childhood program reform. The implementation of a bookbag program in this setting encouraged communication among teachers, students, and parents regarding program set-up, reading habits within the family, and literacy goals. A three-part session involving guided reading, group literacy activities, and independent reading appeared to promote an additional sense of literacy as community. Britsch's "Rural Study" analyzed two Head Start classrooms in a small midwestern town. The teachers, emphasizing the students' already acquired skills, aimed the program so that the children: (1) would become familiar with book concepts and tools; (2) talk openly, expressively, and comprehensibly, and (3) begin to build a base of social skills that would transfer to kindergarten. The teachers focused on inclusion, ownership, thinking processes, and stability to create an atmosphere that fostered those aims. (Contains 46 references.) (Mt)
Learning in Small Moments: Life in an Urban Classroom. the PractitionerInquiry Series by Daniel R Meier( Book )

1 edition published in 1997 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

This book tells the stories of two young male first-grade teachers in an urban public school. From the perspective of a white male teacher, the book describes the complexities of establishing a personal and professional relationship with a co-teacher of different ethnicity (Hispanic American) and somewhat different philosophy, and the difficulties in understanding and improving the shared classroom. The co-teaching, job sharing arrangement was initiated by the teachers when they were graduate students who wished to teach, but could only work part-time. The class they taught was more than half African American, with mixed race and Hispanic students represented. Their school year illustrates many challenges and rewards in teaching. Many of their experiences point out ways in which educational reform could help, such as the elimination of standardized testing at the first-grade level. They point out that school reform will only be truly valuable if it matches the specific contexts and situations of teachers, students, and families. Teaching and learning in the urban setting depends on the overall quality of human interaction in the classroom. (Sld)
