Description

Looking at Children: Field Experiences in Child Study is an approach to learning materials for early childhood educators. Looking at Children consists of a series of fourteen units of structured exercises dealing with specific educational and developmental issues such as language development, classification, play, and moral development in children. Also included are up-to-date materials concerning family involvement, television, single-parent families, and the father’s role in parenting. Looking at Children can be used effectively as a part of a formal preservice or in-service training program. Don’t miss Looking at Children, an invaluable aid in helping you achieve the goals of improved educational competency and increased understanding of children.

Written in 1976, Looking at Children gives a perspective on early childhood development and education from that era. Dr. Goldman bases this book on the concepts of the Swiss psychologist Jean Piaget and offers 14 units that provide exercises for educators. 

Looking at Children gives an experts’ view into childhood development in the ’70s and addresses potential issues. Despite the era of the book, Golden discusses single-parent families, the role of the father in a child’s life, and abuse in three units. Another unit covers how children view gender typing. Goldman also introduces how television affected children, which has now transformed into electronic devices. 

Other units in Looking at Children discuss how to stimulate infants and the role of play with children. This book also mentions childhood development areas like morals, language, and relationships. Goldman also notes how children deal with classes and another unit titled the “Notions of Numbers and Quantity.” This guide gives a glimpse into views from decades ago, where some still hold relevance. Looking at Children can be used as a historical reference guide or see how educational practices have changed.
