ECHP421: Early Childhood Reflective Practice 5
This unit incorporates theoretical and practical aspects of teaching and includes a compulsory Guided Experience field component. This unit builds on ECHP 324 Reflective Practice 4, particularly in the areas of curriculum decision making, refinement of teaching strategies and documentation of children's learning. One component of this unit is study of the work of educators in Reggio Emilia, which is analysed in terms of implications for Australian early childhood contexts. Another focus is an extension of earlier study of ways to counter bias and a consideration of socially just educational contexts. Finally, approaches to curriculum are analysed, including MacNaughton's (2003) conceptualisations of conforming, reforming and transforming philosophical positions.
