Elementary Education free pdf A thorough overview of elementary education in the United States, spanning its history, foundations, curriculum models, technology, assessment, and special programs. From understanding how children learn through current brain research findings to highly controversial reform movements and assessment practices, Americans are continually searching for ways to improve the quality of education for their children. Can any single approach successfully meet the needs of such ethnically, culturally and socially diverse students?

First examining its historical, philosophical, social and cultural foundations, the work then delves into the fascinating topic of how children learn, including racial identity formation, culturally differing cognitive thinking styles, and language developments.
