It is very exciting to have a book in the wonderful Reflective Teaching series that is specifically dedicated to early education. Supporting the youngest learners in our society is a huge responsibility and demands thoughtful and responsive professionalism. This interesting and inspirational book is an excellent resource for all those involved with early childhood education and care, at every stage of their careers. Reflective Teaching in Early Education is a comprehensive, readable text that is highly informative and invites critical thinking, at every step, through accessible reflective activities. The structure of the book is clear, beginning with professional identity and development and moving to cover key aspects of learning, teaching and wider social issues. I will definitely use this book myself and look forward to reading and discussing it with undergraduate and postgraduate students of early childhood education.
Reflective Teaching in Early Education provides a hugely valuable and comprehensive tool to support evidence-based reflective practice in the early years. It will support those currently studying and no doubt become a core text for many courses, but I would also recommend it for all practitioners wishing to extend and deepen their practice. It is challenging in a highly accessible and practical way, full of reflective activities, questions and case studies alongside ideas for further reading. An excellent resource for the early years.
I teach on a BA (Honours) Early Childhood Studies course and Reflective Teaching in Early Education will become one of the key texts for my students. I like the way the book begins with "me" as a reflective learner and graduates to a much deeper level of reflection by the end. Overall, this is a very impressive and important text for students concerned with early education.
I have thoroughly enjoyed engaging with this essential text for all those involved in the early years. Reflective Teaching in Early Education is comprehensive and challenging, and effectively uses case studies and reflective activities to support and extend the reader.
This text gives a comprehensive insight to early years teaching, and presents students with some thought provoking questions.
