Praise for the 1st edition:
"A detailed report on the difficult area of children's cognitive development within an early childhood education program from 2-5 years, and a clear example of a high-quality program demonstrating what excellence can achieve."
In this revised version of a classic text, Chris Athey builds on her original internationally renowned research with new illustrations of 'continuity' in children's thinking from early to primary education. Drawing on extensive experience and research evidence, the author shows how teachers of young children can advance professionally towards a greater knowledge of the children's thinking and learning.
Extending Thought in Young Children, Second Edition covers:
- "Forms of thought" used by young children
- Assimilation of curriculum content
- Parental participation
This updated edition is an essential read for students and teachers in early years education.
