Really useful book for any early years practitioner, helps link theory and practice. Useful for my students!
Generally up to date - examines a great breadth of issues. Accessible, thought provoking - a very useful text and well liked by students
Excellent source of reference for critical reflection for the BA Early Years (Top Up)
Another very interesting book edited by Reed and Canning. It can be useful for every single module of the Early Childhood Studies course. Every chapter of this book is related to the current curriculum and can supports students and Early Years professional in their work with children.
Extremely useful for any Undergraduate student who has a module on reflective practice linked to their work setting.
I have personally used this book in my teaching and I have recommended that the students on the Foundation Degree in Early Childhood purchase it to support them with developing their reflective writing. The students need to reflect on their professional development to further develop their practice and this book provides good examples of how to do this in practice.
A good book for students to refer to when writing up their reflective accounts
A thorough introduction to reflective practice, written in a style that suits undergraduate students who need a text that covers everything from an introduction to reflection, through to a more indepth examination of the theories of reflection.
The content of the chapters fits with the subject content of this module in particular multi agency working and working together. The focus on reflective practice is a particular strength and will support students in an area they find difficult
A well written, accessible text. Adopted as highly recommended text for all Childhood Practice students.
