When Will I Be Special? Rethinking Developmentally Appropriate Practice in a Classroom Routine
Chen, Dora.; Battin-Sacks, Pamela
Young Children, v63 n3 p44-48, 50-51 May 2008
When the parents of a preschooler at a university lab school questioned the classroom practice of Leader of the Day, with its "special privileges," it gave two teachers pause to think. They share their reflections about the purpose of the practice; what it means to the children; and what the children learn from it. Following guidelines from the Developmentally Appropriate Practice (DAP) framework, the teachers developed a series of activities to involve the children in making decisions about the Leader of the Day routine. ["When Will I Be Special? Rethinking Developmentally Appropriate Practice in a Classroom" was written with Robert Prieto and Colleen Prieto.]
