"La Ronda" in a Spanish Kindergarten Classroom with a Cross-Cultural Comparison to Sharing Time in the U.S.A.
Poveda, David
Anthropology & Education Quarterly, v32 n3 p301-25 Sep 2001
Examines "la ronda," a common event in Spanish schools in which children present oral narratives of non-school experiences. Suggests that la ronda's goal is to help children and teachers build a sense of themselves as a moral community. Despite parallels in organization and content between la ronda and sharing time in U.S. schools, there are important cultural differences. (SM)
