Readings from Childhood Education. Volume II.
Quisenberry, James D., Ed.; And Others
This anthology is the second volume of selected articles from the periodical Childhood Education. It includes 82 articles from 1964 to 1985 that represent many aspects of the child and the child's developmental environment. Articles by leaders in the field of childhood education, spokespersons in related fields, and teachers and parents are included. The first of the five major sections concerns the child. The articles in this section reflect the concerns and positions of the society in general: not a standardized, limited view of American culture, but a variety of subcultures and global points of view. The second section deals with the environments of the child's initial and fundamental learning experiences: the family, home, community, and world. The third section includes articles relating to the learning environment of the school. In the fourth section, the status of the profession and the directions in which it is moving are reviewed. The articles in the final section deal with issues concerning the future of childhood education. (GLR)
