IAP BOOK SERIES
Early Childhood Education Assembly
Mandates to implement practices that are antithetical to what we embrace as supportive of young childrenâ€™s literacy learning are pervasive. Teachers of young children are asked to teach-to-the test in ways that take away opportunities for holistic, thoughtful, play-oriented practices that allow children to construct knowledge through contextualized and purposeful experiences. In 2009 the Early Childhood Assembly (ECEA) was formed by a group of early childhood educators to provide a home at the National Council for Teacher of English for all who work with young children. This book series is an opportunity for early childhood educators to advocate for young children and their families and to challenge dominant biases about diversity and children of diverse cultures and languages.
Books in this series can be research-based or practitioner oriented but must focus on children from birth to age eight in settings from home, school or community.
