Affordance of Participation Rights for Children in Home-Based Education and Care: An Interactive Process Model of Participation--2007
Layland, Judy
Children & Society, v24 n5 p386-399 Sep 2010
Recent models relating to the affordance of children's participation rights, based on articles 12 and 13 of the United Nations Convention on the Rights Of the Child (1989), have focused on the role of and strategies used by the adults working with children ("Children and Society" 10, 2001: 107-117; "Children and Society" 20, 2006: 209-222). Whilst these adults play a pivotal role in affording participation rights, children, and their parents/family/whanau, play an equally important role. This paper explores the complex interplay of roles, relationships, and strategies used by adults and children in home-based education settings in Aotearoa/New Zealand, that support the affordance of participation rights for children. It identifies key aspects of practice that underpin this, and presents an alternative model of participation that is in keeping with a sociocultural approach to children's learning and development, and acknowledges them, in the right conditions, as having a voice and agency as citizens in their own right.
