Hirsh, Rae Ann


Early Childhood Curriculum: Incorporating Multiple Intelligence Theory, Developmentally Appropriate Practice, and Play introduces the early childhood student to the essential aspects of the early childhood curriculum: intelligence and potential, developmentally appropriate practice, healthy relationships, play, assessment, and planning. Features: The text is organized utilizing NAEYC's 4-Phase Framework for curriculum development: theory, planning, implication, and assessment. Reflective Journal Questions/Activities throughout offer pre-service teachers practical strategies for extending the information presented in the text. An historical timeline presents the history of the multiple intelligence theory in an appealing/visual way (Ch. 2). Child work samples and photographs illustrate development of symbols in each of the intelligence chapters (Chs. 3, 4, 5 & 6). Vignettes throughout the play chapter help students to transfer the theory to practice and encourage debate and discussion regarding the importance of play in the early childhood curriculum (Ch. 8). Developmental Progression of Play tables enable students to see the connection between materials, interactions, and play stages (Ch. 8). A sample portfolio, which includes work samples, checklists, photographs, and anecdotal records, allows students to make curricular decisions based on appropriate assessments (Ch.11). Practical special education strategies for each intelligence are presented through case studies (Chs 3, 4, 5, & 6). CulturallyAppropriate Education is addressed through a case study that is reflected upon after each intelligence section (Chs. 3, 4, 5, & 6). Core concepts in each intelligence help the students to realize appropriate expectations for young children and to develop appropriate goals and objectives for young children (Ch. 11). This unique text can be used as a curriculum in the early childhood classroom once the students have graduated.
