Creating Effective Learning Environments takes curriculum development to another level: it fills the gap between theory and practice. This text helps readers see the curriculum from a child's perspective and understand how that perspective is linked to learning and theory. It is the author's view that the centre of any curriculum is the child; this text begins not with general theories or applications that are suitable for many, but with each individual child. The theory and methodology of this text are integrated around the actual experiences of children, presented in a logical flow, and embracing current philosophies about integration, play, bias, and learning practices.
