Discovery of Early Childhood 2ed
Discovery of Early Childhood 2ed
The second edition of Discovery updates, expands and illustrates Helen May's foundation book on the discovery of new and often radical ideas concerning the care and education of young children in institutions established outside of the family home. The story traverses both Europe, where these ideas were seeded, and New Zealand, where missionaries first transported the new progressive notion of infant schools as an experiment for educating young Maori children apart from their whanau and outside the kainga. This book, which has been popular with education students since it was first published in 1997, is now richly illustrated and introduces readers to key figures of the Enlightenment in the 17th and 18th centuries and to infant schools and kindergartens in the 19th century. For the 20th century the stories traverse the influence of progressive ideals on new kinds of institutions such as nursery schools and Playcentre, and to educators such as Maria Montessori, Margaret McMillan and Susan Isaacs.

Learning Stories in Practice 3ed
Learning Stories in Practice 3ed
Margaret Carr and Wendy Lee have often been asked for a follow-on practical companion to their seminal 2012 book Learning Stories; a complimentary book that provides practical advice for teachers who are embarking on a 'narrative assessments-for-learning' journey. After much anticipation that book is here at last!



Packed with a wide range of full-colour examples of real life learning stories from all over the world this practical guide is influenced by their ongoing work with teachers across many countries and the thoughtful comments and questions that teachers have asked during conversations at conferences, lectures and professional development programmes. They have turned these conversations with teachers and students into key ideas, and a practical framework on how to initiate and create good learning stories and why they are valuable.



They show you how to write stories that capture the magic and excitement of each young child's journey through the early years and how to develop a deep professional understanding of the learning that takes place during this special and influential time in their lives.

Nga Hurihanga Ako Kohungahunga Transformative Teaching Practices in Early Childhood Education
Nga Hurihanga Ako Kohungahunga Transformative Teaching Practices in Early Childhood Education
Nga Hurihanga Ako Kohungahunga - Transformative teaching practices in early childhood education introduces current innovations in early childhood education teaching practice in New Zealand and discusses various aspects of pedagogical practice in ways designed to both stimulate and inform the student of early childhood education. Inherently complex and involving many facets shaped by context, pedagogical practice in early childhood education is always evolving and subjective in nature. With this text the editors aim to engage the teacher/learner in recognising and responding to the complexity of good pedagogical practice, informing teacher choices about: philosophical approaches; decision making about curriculum; ethical approaches to relationship building; and interactions with children and their families.
