Summary "By linking theory to practice with an emphasis on national and state standards, Head Start Performance Standards, No Child Left Behind, and IDEA, the authors coherently combine principles of child development and social studies content to create a solid program for preschool through grade three. The authors maintain the overriding idea of the Teaching Young Children series - strategies derived from knowledge of child development are used to teach content knowledge."--BOOK JACKET.
