How children learn - Educational theories and approaches
The How Children Learn series provides a comprehensive yet accessible account of the educational theorising that has shaped and is continuing to shape teaching and learning in the early years. It explores educational thinking from ancient times to the present day, breaks complex ideas down into understandable ones, helps educators relate theory to their experience of children, makes clear how each theory translates into practice and offers guidance on working with and including children with additional special educational needs.
Book 1 summarises the findings and ideas of 30 educational theorists and psychologists (eg, Montessori, Piaget, Dewey) and different approaches to education (eg, Steiner, High/Scope, Te Whariki).
