From A Tree To A Forest-Integrate cultural diversity into an ECE learning enviro


Event Description

This training is previously SUTQ approved under the title of “From A Tree to A Forest-Integrate diversity into our learning environment.” Why does a preschool child from the outside of the United States say, “You are not an American because you don’t eat hamburgers?” Why does a teenage girl in our community ask an Asian American “If she/he can do her nails?” What is the purpose of introducing different cultures to our young children when they seem not be consciously aware of their own or others’ cultures? What do we hope young children will learn from those “multicultural experiences” that we provide for them through a tourist approach? Children played with “those stick things” in the dramatic play area, then declared, “All Chinese people eat with sticks.” Is this what we hope children to learn, or is there any other deeper disequilibrium we would like to create and spark children to scaffold? We need to help our children make sense of their complex world by becoming curious, critical and compassionate learners. If we want our children to become global citizens with an open and flexible view of the world, then we need to experience this journey first. Let us explore the diversity and brainstorm for thoughts of integrating diversity into our daily classroom activities in a developmentally and culturally appropriate manner. Recommended pre-requisite: Basic Child Development ELDS Overview
