Summary

Examine the work of five groundbreaking education theorists--John Dewey, Maria Montessori, Erik Erikson, Jean Piaget, and Lev Vygotsky--in relation to early childhood. Theories of Childhoodprovides a basic introduction to each theorist and explains the relationship of theory to practice and its impact on real children, teachers, and classrooms. This edition reflects current academic learning standards and includes new understandings of Vygotsky's work. It is a popular guide to help early childhood professionals be aware of the theories behind good child care practices. It is also a widely-used text in undergraduate programs, community college courses, and training workshops that focus on early development and education. Carol Garhart Mooneyhas been an early childhood educator for more than forty years. She is also the author of Theories of Attachment, Use Your Words, and Swinging Pendulums.
