A Quest To Ban Cute--And Make Learning Truly Challenging.
Sussna, Amy Gayle
Dimensions of Early Childhood, v28 n2 p3-7 Spr 2000
Discusses how "cute" projects--as offered in traditional early childhood classrooms--insult children's intellects, mistake doing with learning, often miseducate, and undermine professionalism and educational equity. Describes a continuum of professional development ranging from cute learning experiences to those that are more challenging. Explores how items showcased in the classroom may be for decoration, display, or documentation. (KB)
