Frameworks for Change: Four Recurrent Themes for Quality in Early Childhood Curriculum Initiatives
Burgess, Jennifer; Fleet, Alma
Asia-Pacific Journal of Teacher Education, v37 n1 p45-61 Feb 2009
This paper reports on the first phase of a case study that investigated how early childhood teachers experience organisational change. As one of three levels of quality improvement, State government-funded curriculum initiatives were developed with an aim to promote change. Three curriculum documents, one each focusing on literacy, pedagogy and health, were released in a short time frame. Analysis of the content of these documents reveals four themes of change that reflected the theories underpinning the waves of change flowing across New South Wales, Australia, in the years 2001-02. (Contains 5 tables.)
