Issues in Constructivist Early Moral Education.
DeVries, Rheta; Zan, Betty; Hildebrandt, Carolyn
Early Education and Development, v13 n3 p313-43 Jul 2002
Cites empirical evidence contrary to Goodman's assertion that preschool children are egocentric and incapable of moral reflection. Offers evidence that heteronomous regulation of children leads to numerous undesirable outcomes and that encouragement of children's autonomy leads to positive outcomes. Points out numerous misconceptions of constructivist education. Asserts that blending constructivist and traditional moral education eliminates critical components of constructivist early moral education. (Author/KB)
