This course explores the ways in which young children develop, play, acquire skills, construct meaning, and participate as learners in their personal, community, and school settings. We will learn how children are constituted, or not, with learning identities. Learning through play, activity, and discourse (literacy, numeracy, science, and studies of the social) will be explored. Students will draw upon their personal learning and schooling histories, field experiences, course readings, class activities, and discussions to analyze the settings, conditions, methods, materials, and strategies for learning from and with children. This course is anchored in and built around notions of antiracism, equity, and disability justice.
