The Role of Ritual in Preschool Settings.
Maloney, Carmel
Early Childhood Education Journal, v27 n3 p143-50 Spr 2000
Explored the forms and functions of ritual in structuring teaching in preschool settings. Found that rituals have both invariant qualities that stabilize the framework within the school system and variant qualities that foster personalized and flexible approaches to teaching. When teachers attend to rituals, rituals have a greater pedagogical function. (DLH)
