Reviewers’ Comments about

Getting it RIGHT for Young Children from Diverse Backgrounds:

Applying Research to Improve Practice 

by Linda M. Espinosa

“The research to practice link is the major contribution of this text and something that is sorely needed as early childhood educators come into contact with the increasingly diverse child population. I am sure that teachers will appreciate the concrete teaching strategies outlined and administrators will appreciate that these strategies are based on sound developmental theory and high quality research.”

 –Marlene Zepeda, California State University, Los Angeles

 

“It is research-based, yet there are meaningful cases and anecdotes that personalize the text for the reader. There is no question that this textbook reflects the current state-of-the-field in terms of best practice and research…I especially like all the vignettes, case studies, and illustrations because it makes the reader think about issues and personalize them.”

–Hersh Waxman, Texas A&M University, College of Education and Human Development

“It provides a rich and comprehensive look at the needs of young children from diverse backgrounds…This text covers recent research, culture, bilingualism, language acquisition and brain development, and demographic realities including poverty. It emphasizes the importance of collaboration among teachers and families in the community to best serve students. Furthermore, curriculum and assessment guidelines for teachers are presented.”

–Gina Cicco, Hostos Community College of The City University of New YorkUniversity

“I like that it is logical, well organized, and that it applies to any reader. This…is also encouraging to the early childhood practitioner who advocates for quality programs for young children on a daily basis. With information like this, the challenge doesn’t seem as daunting.”

–Stephanie Deering, South Plains College, Lubbock, Texas
