ERIC/EECE News

ECRP

For this issue of ECRP, you'll notice that the pages have been slightly redesigned for easier reading, navigation, and printing.

You'll also notice that we have added a feature for searching the ECRP Web site. This feature is available at http://ecrp.illinois.edu/search.html.

Redesign of the ERIC/EECE Web Site Becomes Public

We are pleased to announce the redesign of the ERIC/EECE Web site (http://ericeece.org). The graphic look of the site has changed, but all the information and resources from the old site are still available. Most pages have been updated, and some new resources have been added. Please check out our new design! Look for these additions and features on the ERIC/EECE site:

Part 1 of the book defines what is meant by the term child development and shows how to apply child development knowledge. Part 2 defines the developmental approach to early childhood education and outlines some principles of a developmental approach to curriculum.

Web Partners

Two of ERIC/EECE's Web partners, whose Web sites were formerly maintained on ERIC/EECE's Web server, have now moved their sites to new domain names:

Wheelock College Institute for Leadership and Career Initiatives
http://institute.wheelock.edu/ This Web site provides information and resources related to professional development in early childhood education.
