Overview

In the Field combines readings, resources, and field assignments for various levels of students. Content is often presented in checklist format to encourage students to reflect on what they have learned, and to better the retention of the material. Applicable readings, suggested resources, and field assignments allow students to observe and participate in what they have learned, and will remain a resource as students transition to professional teaching roles.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"I would definitely adopt this text because I believe the information is relevant for the developing teacher, but more importantly, it addresses key issues in the field regarding standards, observations, and reflective practice. The reflective activities in each chapter set it apart from other texts in that it provides a continuous thread of reflection, and practice for the student." - Georgianna Duarte, PhD, University of Texas at Brownsville

"In the Field is extremely current. For example, it goes into specific and accurate detail about NAEYC's brand spanking new accreditation for associate degree early childhood programs." - Amy Huffman, MA, BS, Professor, Early Childhood Education Guilford Technical Community College, North Carolina

"In the Field brings together into a single text a wide variety of activities, the "Field Assignments", to focus student attention on the detailed aspects of their field experiences. It gives weight and importance to those field experiences and to daily early childhood classroom practice and serves to link experience and practice to the theoretical foundation students receive from instructors, textbooks, journals, videos and Internet research." - Elizabeth A. Jenkins, B.A., M.Ed., Teacher, Early Childhood Education Program, Orlando Tech, Orange County Public Schools, Orlando, FL
