Self in Society 2


Course code 75203

This course builds on the sociological concepts introduced in Self in Society 1.  It provides an in depth examination of the histories of early childhood services and the political, contested nature of the early childhood curriculum.

You will investigate debates around what knowledge is valued and why, including ways in which dominant values are enacted in curriculum. Debates are extended to multi-cultural perspectives and the issues and tensions for early childhood teachers when attempting to meet the needs and aspirations of pluralistic societies.
