Enthusiastic and Engaged Learners-Approaches to Learning in the Early Childhood Classroom [Marilou Hyson]
Of all the school readiness domains, approaches to learning is perhaps the least understood but the most important. Research shows that positive approaches to learning improve both social–emotional and academic outcomes. Reading this book and completing this eCourse will help early childhood professionals implement strategies to support young children’s positive approaches to learning—their enthusiasm (interest, joy, and motivation to learn) and their engagement (attention, persistence, flexibility, self-regulation, and other essential learning behaviors). Along with extensive research, the text includes images of practice in early education programs in culturally, economically, and linguistically diverse settings. Educators will be able to use this book as a framework to guide their understanding of and communication about approaches to learning.
Participants are responsible for obtaining the books from the public library or by purchasing their own books. The price covers only the cost of the training module and credit hours.
