Transforming Early Childhood Education through Critical Reflection
Anderson, Elizabeth M.
Contemporary Issues in Early Childhood, v15 n1 p81-82 2014
There is tension growing in early childhood education between an emphasis on higher learning standards, teacher-directed activities, and evidence-based instructional methods and maintaining active, dynamic and integrated learning experiences for young children. This short essay highlights the ways in which our existing values and beliefs, theories, and epistemologies about early childhood education can be transformed using a critical lens.
