Helping children make the transition between Reception and Year One is a challenge. When done well it can have a significant impact on children's emotional and academic development, but when done badly it can set some children's development back by up to a year. Alistair Bryce-Clegg is determined to help practitioners conquer this challenge. Having been involved in a number of transition projects that specifically focus on children's emotional, social and academic development throughout this period, Alistair's draws upon his experience in this new book. Packed full of practical ideas to help practitioners to plan for and create an effective learning environment that promotes high levels of attainment in Year One based on the effective principles of EYFS practice, this book should be an essential in any Reception and Year One teacher's library.

Early Childhood Curriculum for All Learners

Author: Ann M. Selmi,Raymond J. Gallagher,Eugenia R. Mora-Flores

Publisher: SAGE

Early Childhood Curriculum for All Learners: Integrating Play and Literacy Activities is designed to teach early childhood professionals about the latest research on play and early literacy and then to show them practical methods for adapting this research to everyday classroom practices that will encourage the development of learning skills. The authors link solid, play-based research to specific developmentally appropriate practices. By combining these two areas, the text demonstrates that academic learning and play activities are highly compatible, and that children can and do develop academic skills through play. In addition, the text focuses on socio-dramatic play, a recently acknowledged, essential aspect of child-initiated play interactions. It provides specific strategies that link these interactive behaviors with the early academic skills needed for the initial primary grades. Implementation of the information presented in this book will enable children to experience a richer transition into primary education classrooms.

Planning for Schematic Learning in the Early Years

A practical guide

Author: Karen Constable

What are schemas and why should you know about them? How can schemas be identified in young children? What does schematic learning look like and how does it meet the needs of individual children? All children are different, they look different, sound different, behave in different ways and crucially they learn differently. It is a constant challenge in Early Years settings and Reception classes to provide opportunities that are relevant and valuable for all the children. Being able to recognise and identify schemas in young children enables practitioners to plan a play-based curriculum that allows for individualised learning based around each child’s interests that will support the next steps of their development. Drawing on current research, the book clearly explains what schemas are and how they can be identified in children. Looking at how settings can plan to incorporate schemas into their schemes and topics and providing real life examples of schematic learning in practice, features include: Examples of schemas alongside descriptions of common behaviour patterns A chapter on using schemas to support children with additional needs Photocopiable key checklists to help identify different schemas Guidance on developing schemas to support children in their next steps Advice on using schemas to aid the transition to Key Stage 1 Including case studies and photographs to illustrate practice, this highly practical book aims to inspire practitioners, teachers and students to be creative in the way they work with children and ensure the best for those in their care.

Perspectives on Transitions in Schooling and Instructional Practice

Author: Susan E. Elliott-Johns,Daniel H. Jarvis

Publisher: University of Toronto Press

ISBN: 1442667117

Category: Education

Page: 552

Perspectives on Transitions in Schooling and Instructional Practice examines student transitions between major levels of schooling, teacher transitions in instructional practice, and the intersection of these two significant themes in education research. Twenty-six leading international experts offer meaningful insights on current pedagogical practices, obstacles to effective transitions, and proven strategies for stakeholders involved in supporting students in transition. The book is divided into four sections, representing the four main transitions in formal schooling: Early Years (Home, Pre-school, and Kindergarten) to Early Elementary (Grades 1–3); Early Elementary to Late Elementary (Grades 4–8); Late Elementary to Secondary (Grades 9–12); and Secondary to Post-Secondary (College and University). A coda draws together over-arching themes from throughout the text to provide recommendations and a visual model that captures their interactions. Combining theoretical approaches with practical examples of school-based initiatives, this book will appeal to those involved in supporting either the student experience (both academically and emotionally) or teacher professional learning and growth.

Early Childhood And Primary Education: Readings And Reflections

Readings & Reflections

Author: Johnston, Jane,Halocha , John

Publisher: McGraw-Hill Education (UK)

ISBN: 0335236561

Category: Education

Page: 312

Early years and primary are often seen as very separate stages of development, although children are expected to progress from one key stage to another in a seamless way and the historical and philosophical ideas underpinning practice at the different stages are often the same or similar. To be fully effective professionals need to understand and reflect on both children’s experiences before and after the stage they are currently working in and the historical and current ideas and practice. The current drive is to equip professionals working with young children with higher level understandings and skills and this involves consideration of the key historical and current theories and the development of the conceptual and philosophical frameworks which positively impact on current practice. The strengths of this book are that it develops the necessary understandings and skills and closes the gap between professionals working together to support children holistic development. It also provides opportunities to engage in critical debate on current issues in professional practice, as identified in national and international reports and develop their skills through this engagement. It will be of benefit to a range of students on Initial Teacher Education, Education Studies and Early Childhood Studies programmes, as well as professionals working with children from birth to 11 years of age (from early career to leaders) and lecturers teaching HE courses.

Korea and the Knowledge-based Economy

Making the Transition

Page: 152

Korea is a country with limited natural resources, which has developed through a strategy of industrialisation and the economies of scale. However this is being challenged by the rise of knowledge as a principal driver of competitiveness. This book is the result of a joint study by the OECD and the World Bank to develop a comprehensive set of national policy responses to the knowledge revolution. It concentrates on four areas: 1) an institutional and economic regime that provides incentives for the creation of new knowledge and its efficient use; 2) an educated and entrepreneurial population; 3) a dynamic information infrastructure; 4) an efficient system of innovation.

Schnelligkeit durch Vertrauen

die unterschätzte ökonomische Macht

Author: Stephen M. R. Covey,Rebecca R. Merrill

Publisher: GABAL Verlag GmbH

Category: Business & Economics

Page: 370

Vertrauen bildet die Grundlage für alle Beziehungen und jede Form der Kommunikation, für alle Individuen, Unternehmen, Organisationen und Zivilisationen rund um den Globus. Mangelndes Vertrauen zerstört auch die erfolgreichsten Unternehmen, die mächtigste Regierung und die florierendste Wirtschaft. Trotz der offensichtlich immensen Macht von Vertrauen spielt es im realen Geschehen kaum eine Rolle und gehört wohl zu den am meisten unterschätzten Faktoren unserer Wirtschaft und Gesellschaft. Stephen M. R. Covey zeigt in seinem viel beachteten Buch „Schnelligkeit durch Vertrauen“, dass Vertrauen kein weicher Faktor ist, sondern ein pragmatischer und realer Wert, den man erschaffen und zur Handlungsgrundlage machen kann. Er präsentiert konkrete Vertrauensregeln und Prinzipien und zeigt, wie auf allen Ebenen eines Unternehmens Vertrauen aufgebaut, gelebt und gefördert werden kann. Seine These: Vertrauen ist eine Schlüsselkompetenz und ein Art Teilchenbeschleuniger für die Wirtschaft.
