Rambusch, Nancy McCormick – Montessori Life: A Publication of the American Montessori Society, 2013
Children learn, with or without teachers. They absorb knowledge from whatever environment they are in. The type of environment conducive to children's learning depends largely on adults. Adults have always professed to love children. Less often have they professed a need to respect them. Many are the adults who believe that the role of the child…

Hameed, Alya – Children's Literature in Education, 2017
Though many children's texts include maps that visually demarcate their journeys, modern texts rarely involve active mapping by child characters themselves, suggesting that children cannot (or should not) conceptualise the world for themselves, but require an adult's guidance to traverse it. Reif Larsen's "The Selected Works of T. S.…

McClure, Marissa – Studies in Art Education: A Journal of Issues and Research in Art Education, 2013
In this article, I propose that research which focuses on young children's experiences with the interactivity of new media not only furthers findings about young children's digital lives but also enriches the conclusion that children's engagement with artmaking--in general and in traditional ways--is richly complex, affective, and…

Foster, Joanne – Parenting for High Potential, 2013
The author of this article implores parents to take the word "I" off the table. Instead of thinking "What can I do for my children?" consider, "What can they do for themselves?" How can one invoke children's independence and initiative? Start by inspiring them to investigate, imagine, and use their intellect.…

Bureau, Jean-Francois; Martin, Jodi; Freynet, Nathalie; Poirier, Alexane Ali; Lafontaine, Marie-France; Cloutier, Paula – Journal of Youth and Adolescence, 2010

Fleck, Bethany; Richmond, Aaron S.; Sanderson, Jordace; Yacovetta, Sara – Cogent Education, 2015
When parents talk with their children about lessons learned in school, they are participating in reminiscing of an unshared event. This study sought to understand if pedagogical documentation, from the Reggio Approach to early childhood education, would support and enhance the conversation. Mother-child dyads reminisced two separate times about…

Murris, Karin – Studies in Philosophy and Education, 2013
Classical conceptual distinctions in philosophy of education assume an individualistic subjectivity and hide the learning that can take place in the space between child (as educator) and adult (as learner). Grounded in two examples from experience I develop the argument that adults often put metaphorical sticks in their ears in their educational…
