Oh Boy! Strategies for Teaching Boys in Early Childhood

Oh Boy! suggests that many of the struggles young boys have in our early childhood programs and schools are not simply a result of bad behavior. Rather, boys struggle because of a much more fundamental problem: a mismatch between how most young boys develop, grow, and learn, and the kinds of expectations, outcomes, activities, and discipline approaches used in programs during the early years. "I think a radical change is needed in order to fully meet the needs of young boys. A place to start is recognizing that typical boy behaviors like lack of attention, risk taking, poor emotional regulation, full body movement, and messy exploration of the physical world, are the norm, and not the exception. This book hopes to aid programs as they begin to acknowledge and celebrate this norm." – Francis Wardle "This is not just a book, it's a story…a story of hope for young boys attending childcare in any type of setting. It's a story that sends a message to our industry that we need a paradigm shift—to our thinking, our training, and our hiring—to recognize the gender imbalance that is putting young boys at great risk of failure. It's a story that urges us as a field to better understand the specific complexities of caring for young boys so that we may fulfill our ultimate promise to provide the highest quality of care possible to all children." – Jerry Parr, President/CEO Willow Tree Early Education Team

Author(s): Kerry Mundine, Miriam Giugni (click on the author's name for more titles)

Aboriginal (Indigenous) and multicultural issues are a significant part of everyday early childhood curriculum in Australia.

These examples of everyday practice show where they have struggled and at times succeeded in acting differently to tackle issues of social justice. The writers in this book follow in the footsteps of a number of early childhood activists who have enabled an ongoing conversation about social justice in everyday early childhood education.

Voices & Visions
Aboriginal Early Childhood Education in Australia

Author(s): Karen Martin (click on the author's name for more titles)

Just as our visions will be the present of some young Aboriginal children who are not yet born, these will be made real through our voices and actions right now. The question begs to be asked: ‘What kind of people do we want those children of the future to remember us as being?’

This book reflects the stories of practitioners in Aboriginal early childhood education in Australia. It is not just their stories, but a text for how Aboriginal worldviews and frameworks are incorporated in what they do. As Aboriginal people we have always had to conform to a Western schooling system, one which does not fully appreciate our knowledges. In what you are about to read there is an implied but silent script in that, ‘you listen now and let us tell you’.

From the Foreword by Jackie Huggins, Inaugural Co-Chair: Aboriginal Congress

I really liked all of the stories and all the voices and how the narra-tives wove around key learnings, highlighting the important events from the author’s points of view, how these were experienced and other things that the writer wants the reader to know: the successes, the challenges; stories of family, of country and so much more. But they are also all essentially stories about early childhood education and what it means to be a good Aboriginal educator … I have never met any of the authors personally but feel I know them after reading the stories.

Professor Maggie Walter, Pro Vice-Chancellor Aboriginal Research and Leadership, University of Tasmania
