"This book explores the frequently observed schemas of young children - patterns of behaviour from which understanding and growth is derived - and draws out the nature of this learning." "It is essential that adults working with young children are able to recognise and identify schema learning, and understand the opportunities for learning, as well as knowing how to support and develop the schemas appropriately, in order to extend children's thinking. Good observational skills are a key element and the book features a Child Observation Schedule."--BOOK JACKET.
