Talkin' Up and Speakin' Out: Aboriginal and Multicultural Voices in Early Childhood
1 Jan 2010
Aboriginal (Indigenous) and multicultural issues are a significant part of everyday early childhood curriculum in Australia. When early childhood curriculum is inclusive, focused on diversity and difference, and politically engaged then social justice is possible. This book is the result of many experiences and conversations between the early childhood educators who have inscribed its pages with their yarns, stories and narratives. 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.
