Everyday Environmental Education Experiences: The Role of Content in Early Childhood Education
Cutter-Mackenzie, Amy; Edwards, Suzy
Australian Journal of Environmental Education, v22 n2 p13-19 2006
In recent years discussions surrounding early childhood curriculum has focused on the movement from developmental to sociocultural theory. A further area worthy of investigation involves the role of content in early childhood education, specifically the relationship between content, context and pedagogy. The paper draws on teacher vignettes to consider how environmental education can be represented as a content area in early years education. Issues associated with environmental education as an emerging area of importance in early childhood education are also discussed. (Contains 3 figures.)
