Practical Transformations and Transformational Practices : Globalization, Postmodernism, and Early Childhood Education, Hardback Book

Practical Transformations and Transformational Practices : Globalization, Postmodernism, and Early Childhood Education Hardback

Edited by Sharon Ryan, Susan Grieshaber

Part of the Advances in Early Education & Day Care series

Description

Both traditional and progressive curricula are inadequate for the task of responding to the economic, political, social, and cultural changes that have occurred as a result of globalization.

This book documents some of the ongoing work occurring in early childhood settings that is aimed at improving, and ultimately transforming, early childhood practice in these changed and changing times.

The authors do not simply critique developmental approaches or the increasing standardization of the field.

Instead, they describe how they are playing around with postmodern ideas in practice and developing unique approaches to the diverse educational circumstances that confront early childhood educators.

Whether it is preparing teachers, using materials, or developing policies, each chapter provides readers with possibilities for enacting pedagogies that are responsive to the contemporary circumstances shaping the lives of young children.
