Focusing on the period from birth to school, this book is about babies' and young children's feelings, their learning; and the ways in which the adults in their lives can support their emotional, social and cognitive development. Looking at the perspectives both of the child and the adult, it presents thought-provoking ideas and questions on how adults can make the most of opportunities to support the children with whom they live and work. A story, in episodes embedded throughout the book, makes this an accessible and enjoyable read. In this third edition, there are new and updated chapters on: • Young children's transitions, with a particular focus on starting school • Young children's positive 'learning dispositions' • Brain research and its possible implications • Further reading, signposting some enchanting children's books as well as important new texts. The book explores the basis of the 'key person' relationship, looking at attachment 'in practice', and linking developmental issues with the early development of self esteem. Written for students on early childhood courses and staff in early childhood care and education settings and integrated Children's Centres, the book will also be of interest to parents and carers.

"In Self-Esteem and Successful Early Learning, the author examines the patterns of relationships within families, the growth of understanding between very young children and adults, and how children's feelings affect their learning." "By describing the lives of two young children, Lily and Joe, within their fictional family, the author enables us to observe their relationships and then examine our observations in the light of her expert commentary. This accessible and effective approach allows us to re-examine our own responses to the behaviour of young children." "In this book, Rosemary Roberts shows how self-esteem is the key to children's well-being and to effective teaching and learning. She describes learning theories in a straightforward and accessible way together with suggestions about how teachers, parents and others can make the most of children's drive to explore, play and gain control. Suggestions are also made for dealing with situations which arise in the nursery, at school and in the homes of young children and their important adults."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.

Self-Esteem and Foreign Language Learning deals with a topic which has been given surprisingly little attention in Second and Foreign Language Acquisition studies. Although there are several studies dealing with general education, this volume addresses the need to take self-esteem into consideration in the language classroom and adopts both theoretical/research and practical perspectives, with the hope of being useful for both researchers and practitioners. The book is organized into three main parts. Part I serves as an introduction to self-esteem. Part II reports on the existing literature about the theory and research dealing with self-esteem and foreign language learning, and Part III includes procedures for implementation and activities for classroom applications. Self-Esteem and Foreign Language Learning is edited by Fernando Rubio (PhD.), a researcher and teacher at the University of Huelva in Spain. Most of the chapters have been written by members of the research group Affective factors in language learning, which has also published a book on Multiple Intelligences and the teaching of English (Dr. Jane Arnold, Dr. Carmen Fonseca, etc.). There are two outside contributions: one is by Andrew Wright, author of numerous publications for language teachers, and the other by Veronica de Andrs, teacher trainer from the University of El Salvador (Argentina) and member of the executive board of the International Council for Self-Esteem. Dr. Elaine Horwitz of the University of Texas has contributed a preface.
