Prisoners of the Method: Breaking Open the Child-Centered Pedagogy in Day Care Centres.
Singer, Elly
International Journal of Early Years Education, v4 n2 p28-40 Sum 1996
Examines basic concepts forming the foundation for professional care and education of young children and how these concepts may impede interaction between teachers or caregivers and children. Critiques the concepts of natural development, developmentally appropriate curriculum, and child centeredness. Advocates increased scaffolding, increased value given to peer relationships, and increased recognition that peers want to work and learn together. (KDFB)
