It's More than Child Development: Critical Theories, Research, and Teaching Young Children

Ryan, Sharon & Grieshaber, Susan J. (2004) It's More than Child Development: Critical Theories, Research, and Teaching Young Children. YC: Young Children Journal Of The National Assocation For The Education Of Young Children., 59(6), pp. 44-52.


After outlining the assumptions framing critical theoretical orientations, Ryan and Grieshaber examine some of the early childhood research using different kinds of theories. They conclude by exploring how teachers might approach their work with young children if they use critical theories in addition to knowledge of children's learning and development.

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
