Early childhood authority, Sue Bredekamp, designed Effective Practices in Early Childhood Education: Building a Foundation to prepare a new generation of teachers who can make a difference in children’s lives and education. Written with a clear and engaging presentation, this intriguing text provides the building blocks for understanding developmentally appropriate, effective practices in early childhood education. Bredekamp shows how effective teaching practices can make a difference in the lives of young children by focusing on three key themes: intentional teaching, challenging and interesting curriculum, and evidence-based, effective practices. The Third Edition is updated with the latest research impacting policy and practice to help teachers thrive in the dynamic field of early education.
