Reviews

The author understands that early childhood education students encounter field experiences in many courses before the practica or student teaching semester. This book would serve as a helpful support as the student progresses through the 2-year and 4-year degree program. It could be a text required in the first semesters when field experiences begin and then used continually through the final semester. Many times a text used for student teaching/practicum is required only in that semester. Students appreciate when they get more book for the buck!
My first reaction was very favorable because I teach the practicum course at Hillsdale College and currently do not use a text. I have been looking for a text that would enrich, enhance and in the long run, better prepare students for their actual student teaching experience. I have found several books that support the actual student teaching experience (although certainly not very many) but have not been satisfied with any description for a practicum. After reading the chapter summaries it became obvious to me that the authors have a well planned text with great potential value to teacher preparation programs.
'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
'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 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
