Description:

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.

Diversity in Early Care and Education explores the rich diversity encountered in programs and environments for children, ages birth to 8, including those serving children with special needs. The emphasis is on the practical and immediate concerns of the early childhood professional and family service worker, though all information has strong theoretical support. Although the text is situated within an early child care environment, its lessons are valuable for anyone who wants to understand more about diverse views related to children, childrearing, education, and development. From McGraw-Hill.

Highlights of the 5th edition:

  • Culture: The new edition offers expanded coverage of poverty as a dimension of culture, special needs and culture, sorting out positive cultural behaviors from harmful or dysfunctional ones, and building trusting relationships among families and professionals with different cultural backgrounds.
  • Parent involvement and guidance: The 5th edition takes a deeper look at classroom practices in relation to family expectations, including frameworks of independence and interdependence and concepts of school readiness. The text also offers new perspectives on child guidance, including "time outs" and appropriate discipline for children with special needs.

This Special NAEYC Edition of Diversity in Early Care and Education: Honoring Differences, 5th ed., is available individually and in a set with its companion resource, Practice in Building Bridges (#2012), in which Intisar Shareef and Janet Gonzalez-Mena offer activities, stories, and ideas for journaling that will provoke thought and promote diversity.
