How Children Learn Book 3

Contemporary theorists and thinkers on early years' education

How Children Learn Book 3 in this series explores the thought-provoking ideas emerging from contemporary theorists and researchers on how children learn and develop.

Book 3 is part of the How Children Learn series which provides a comprehensive yet accessible account of the educational theorising that has shaped and is continuing to shape teaching and learning in the early years. It explores educational thinking from ancient times to the present day, breaks complex ideas down into understandable ones, helps educators relate theory to their experience of children, makes clear how each theory translates into practice and offers guidance on working with and including children with additional special educational needs.
