Negotiated, co-constructed curriculum: The multiple languages of children

15 points



This course will examine the multiple languages of children within the negotiated, co-constructed early childhood curriculum of the Aotearoa New Zealand bicultural context. Students will consider the role of intentional teaching in planning for and facilitating possibilities and opportunities for multiple language experiences. Affordances and constraints for learning within the environment, and building confidence in students to listen to infants, toddlers and young children, and promote these experiences will be the foci of this course.
