He Tatau Pounamu. Considerations for an Early Childhood Peace Curriculum Focusing on Criticality, Indigeneity, and an Ethic of Care, in Aotearoa New Zealand
Ritchie, Jenny; Lockie, Colleen; Rau, Cheryl
Journal of Peace Education, v8 n3 p333-352 2011
This article discusses some of the philosophical and pedagogical considerations arising in the development of a peace curriculum appropriate for use in early childhood education centres in Aotearoa New Zealand, with and by educators, parents/families and young children. It outlines contexts for the proposed curriculum, which include the history of colonisation, commitments to honouring the values and epistemologies of Maori, the indigenous people, and juxtaposes the proposed peace programme alongside current early childhood education pedagogical discourses in Aotearoa. (Contains 1 note and 1 table.)
