Creating a Learning Environment: Child Development and Pedagogical Issues

Renu Malaviya (Author)
Synopsis This book is primarily addressed to the school administrators, teachers and counselors.  It is envisaged that it would be of benefit not only for the teacher-educators, child development, child psychology, counselors and education students, but also for social workers, nurses, parents and others who are in contact with children and attempts to facilitate their overall development.  A teacher comes with specialization in education and knows best how to teach.  A counselor comes with a specialization in counseling and knows best how to facilitate children solve their problems.  The teacher is the, ‘first counselor’, that a child has in the school system, but the teacher is often not equipped with psycho-social developmental aspects, while the counselor and the psychologist does not always have adequate insight into the processes involved in teaching-learning in the classroom and the school system.  Just like the teacher and the counselor the parents have the best interest of their child at hand.  Yet they are no courses on parenting.  One just learns to be a parent on the job.  It is expected that this book would facilitate the parents to understand the developmental needs of their children and also at the same time facilitate them to gain insight into the dynamics that govern the school and the larger educational system.  This book is an attempt to interlink fundamental of education with counseling so that the school system and others are able to reach out to the child as a whole.  Attempts have been made to highlight experiences from the Indian perspective as well as related the different theories to the Indian School and family system.
