The Experience of Experience
Freidus, Helen
Journal of Early Childhood Teacher Education, v28 n3 p289-299 Jul 2007
This article describes the process of implementing a museum experience into the course content of a literacy methods course. A museum workshop was designed to help graduate students better understand the concept of literacy as a language-based learning process that builds on and extends each child's understanding of the world. Framed by relevant readings, instruction and assignments, the experience appears to support participants' ability to articulate, implement, and advocate for early childhood practice that is both developmentally and linguistically appropriate and culturally relevant.
