Sample text

During the Revolutionary War, many Americans turned against slavery because of the principles of the natural rights of the individual, as embodied in the Declaration of Independence and the United States Constitution. By the early 1800s, most northern owners had freed their slaves, although living conditions for them were generally poor. Because of the high economic value of children as future laborers, there was a certain level of care given to pregnant women and babies. Osborn (1991) tells of a nursery on a South Carolina plantation around 1850 in which … infants and small children were left in a small cabin while the mothers worked in the fields nearby.

He insisted on using concrete teaching materials, leaving the abstract and symbolism for later years. His call to naturalism transformed education in such a way that led educators to eventually focus more on the early years. For instance, he encouraged others to “sacrifice a little time in early childhood, and it will be repaid to you with usury when your scholar is older” (Emile, 1761). Pestalozzi, Froebel, and Montessori were greatly influenced by him. The theories of developmental stages, such as of Jean Piaget and Arnold Gesell (see Chapter 4), support Rousseau’s idea of natural development.

21 SECTION 1 What Is the Field of Early Childhood Education? Strongly influenced by John Dewey, she became a major contributor to the idea of “educational experiments,” that is, trying to plan with teachers the curriculum experiences that would then be observed and analyzed “for children’s reactions to the various learning situations [and] the new teaching techniques” (Mitchell, 1951). For instance, Mitchell suggested that teachers expand on what they knew of children’s “here-and-now” thinking by making … trips with kindergarteners to see how work was done—work that was closely tied up with their personal lives … the growth in thinking and attitudes of the teachers had moved far … toward the conception of their role as a guide as differentiated from a dispenser of information.
