Grieshaber, Susan J. & Ryan, Sharon (2005) Transforming Ideas and Practices. In Grieshaber, Susan J. & Ryan, Sharon (Eds.) Practical Transformations and Transformational Practices: Globalization, Postmodernism, and Early Childhood Education. Elsevier, Amsterdam ; Oxford, pp. 3-17.


Most of the chapters in this book depict local attempts to transform practices in early childhood education. They represent endeavors to problematize the complexities and challenges facing the field and the ways in which moves are being made in everyday classroom practice, policy, teacher education, and professional development to build a knowledge base that is grounded in empirical data and that reflects the diversity characteristic of a globalized society.

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.
