"On the Shoulders of Giants": Exploring the Traditions of Early Childhood Education.
Spodek, Bernard; Saracho, Olivia N.
Early Childhood Education Journal, v31 n1 p3-10 Fall 2003
Discusses trends in early childhood education rooted in much older traditions, such as the project approach and Reggio Emilia approach, as well as the history of Head Start, and other changes in early childhood programs and services. Considers the need for practitioners to understand the theoretical and ideological foundations of pedagogical movements that purport to be "new" as the best means for developing the best curriculum.
