An International Teaching Partnership's Ideas to Transform Early Education Practices for Global Understanding and Cultural Sensitivity
Brock, Avril; Swiniarski, Louise
Education 3-13, v36 n3 p281-292 Aug 2008
The article stems from an international partnership between two faculty members from a British university and an American state college. This partnership has developed through years of collaboration in the field of early childhood education, resulting in the sharing of best practice of both countries and the research of the two authors. Each has developed and published curriculum models for teaching young children in diverse societies to assist teachers in educating young children for global understanding and supporting young bilingual children in culturally sensitive curriculum approaches. This article reflects on this joint international collaboration and the results of disseminating practice.
