Practice in Building Bridges: Companion Resource for Diversity in Early Care and Education (5th ed.)
Item #: 2012
# of Pages:37
In our increasingly diverse society, we all need to be able to create authentic, healthy, equitable relationships with people unlike ourselves, whether our colleagues, coworkers, fellow students, or families of young children. With that goal in mind, this collection of activities, discussion topics, and ideas for journaling is designed as a companion resource for those using Janet Gonzalez-Mena's excellent book Diversity in Early Care and Education, 5th ed. (McGraw-Hill, 2008). Practice in Building Bridges will be valuable for teacher educators, trainers, and program directors in doing staff and professional development. Many of its activities can also be used by individual students, teachers, and practitioners for personal work.
Practice in Building Bridges is available individually and in a set with the Special NAEYC Edition of Diversity in Early Care and Education, 5th ed. in which Gonzalez-Mena addresses the subject of teaching children about diversity, equity, and social justice using a "sideways" approach that focuses on the attitutes and behavior of the teacher, rather than the children.
