Children's Perspectives as "Touch Downs" in Time: Assessing and Developing Children's Understanding Simultaneously
Samuelsson, Ingrid Pramling; Pramling, Niklas
Early Child Development and Care, v179 n2 p205-216 Feb 2009
In this article, getting access to children's perspectives is presented as a prerequisite for assessing as well as developing children's understanding. Children's perspectives are analysed through examples taken from three domains of knowledge: music, mathematics and nature. The issues of assessing and developing children's knowledge are discussed against this empirical background. It is argued that children's perspectives are pivotal to both these educational objectives.
