Child Development for Teachers of Young Children is a useful resource for pre-service early childhood teachers from childcare through to school settings. This text is based on understanding young childrena s developmental characteristics and differences, as well as planning around their interests. Child development covers a vast area of research, much of which has been used to inform teachers, parents and students about ways to nurture children into happy, competent and well-balanced individuals. The authors of this Australian text have married these areas together with essential up-to-date research, and focal information on domains of development. The first section of this text reviews domains of development with points that highlight applications to teaching contexts. The second section tackles domains of learning/curriculum areas where developmentally appropriate, individualised and culturally sensitive practice is integrated into teaching. This text also makes valuable contributions to the art and science of teaching young children in other settings: many children are tutored individually in small groups in learning centres, after school care programs, sports programs and music lessons to count a few.

Child Development: A Thematic Approach

Bukatko/Daehler's CHILD DEVELOPMENT: A THEMATIC APPROACH provides a comprehensive, topically organized, up-to-date picture of development from conception to adolescence. Most important, it draws students' attention to the themes that replay themselves throughout the course of development, fundamental issues that resurface continually and that provide coherence to sometimes seemingly disparate research. The themes can serve as frameworks to help students further understand and remember the multitude of facts about child development. Bukatko/Daehler's sixth edition text draws on five themes, Nature and Nurture, Sociocultural Influence, Continuity/Discontinuity, Interaction among Domains, and Risk/Resilience. By drawing on these themes, the authors hope to stimulate readers to think about the process of development, or why it proceeds as it does. Through new For Your Review and Reflection sections, the authors also hope students will engage with the text and become more adept critical thinkers, who are more likely to appreciate the ramifications of theory and research for applied issues such as parenting practices, education, and social policy for children, which are ultimately concerns for us all.
