Preparing Infant/ Toddler Professionals: A Community College’S Perspective, Jennifer M. Longley Ed.D., Jennifer M. Gilken 2019 Borough of Manhattan Community College

Preparing Infant/ Toddler Professionals: A Community College’S Perspective, Jennifer M. Longley Ed.D., Jennifer M. Gilken

Occasional Paper Series

Preparing professionals to work with infants/ toddlers is complex and unique because of the age group. Community colleges have an integral role in the preparation of infant/ toddler professionals, The Borough of Manhattan Community College infant/ toddler preservice program identified the following four elements to prepare professionals to deliver high-quality, relationship-based practices: (1) relationship-based program, (2) fieldwork opportunities, (3) curriculum, and (4) faculty.


Including Autism: Confronting Inequitable Practices In A Toddler Classroom, Emmanuelle N. Fincham, Amanda R. Fellner 2019 Teachers College, Columbia University

Including Autism: Confronting Inequitable Practices In A Toddler Classroom, Emmanuelle N. Fincham, Amanda R. Fellner

Occasional Paper Series

As co-teachers in a toddler room, we share a personal narrative about our experiences working with a child diagnosed with autism while in our care. Framed within the competing discourses of the medicalized perspective on disability and the individual, child-centered philosophies of early childhood education, we investigate the inequities we felt in the classroom and make connections to the field of early childhood inclusive education at large.


Relationship-Based Infant Care As A Framework For Authentic Practice: How Eun Mi Rediscovered Her Teaching Soul, Susan L. Recchia Ph.D., Seung Eun McDevitt Ed.D 2019 Teachers College, Columbia University

Relationship-Based Infant Care As A Framework For Authentic Practice: How Eun Mi Rediscovered Her Teaching Soul, Susan L. Recchia Ph.D., Seung Eun Mcdevitt Ed.D

Occasional Paper Series

In this paper, we explore the complex nature of preparing diverse professionals for authentic, relationship-based care for infants and toddlers in child care. Looking through the eyes of one student caregiver, we travel with her through a semester-long course introducing her to infant care as an integral part of early childhood teacher preparation. We draw on her descriptions of her weekly experiences in an infant room focusing on a key child, her formal reflections in written assignments, and her responses to a series of interview questions once the course was completed to construct a theory of authentic practice through relationship-based ...


A Bizarro World For Infants And Toddlers And Their Teachers, Marcy Whitebook 2019 University of California, Berkeley

A Bizarro World For Infants And Toddlers And Their Teachers, Marcy Whitebook

Occasional Paper Series

A bizarro world reverses our everyday realities. You may be familiar with the concept if you have ever read DC Comics or watched Seinfeld. In the bizarro world I envision for our nation’s infants and toddlers, family income does not determine whether their parents can afford to take time off work in the first months of their lives nor their right to high quality early care and education. In every infant-toddler program, whether offered in a center or home, staff are steeped in the science of child development and early learning pedagogy, and can depend on good wages and ...


Overlooked Too Long, Joan Lombardi 2019 Bank Street College of Education

Overlooked Too Long, Joan Lombardi

Occasional Paper Series

Child care appears to be emerging as a national issue. After decades of being relegated to the minor leagues of American policy, child care for working families has become front-page news. It has been almost 50 years since the passage of comprehensive child care reform. The Comprehensive Child Development Act of l971 would have provided for a network of child care programs, ensured federal standards, and provided funds to train caregivers, among other provisions. Unfortunately it was vetoed, setting back child care for decades.


Unlocking Birth To Three: Context Really Matters, HB Ebrahim 2019 Bank Street College of Education

Unlocking Birth To Three: Context Really Matters, Hb Ebrahim

Occasional Paper Series

It is undisputed that birth to three are the foundational years where the youngest in our society experience extraordinary growth that contributes towards their development and learning. High quality programmes direct their efforts at building caring relationships, providing nurturing environments and working in partnerships with families and communities. Acting to develop responsive programmes and equitable practices, however, is not straightforward. Contestations have been brought to the fore by dissenting voices to mainstream narratives that privilege certain ways of knowing young children. In light of this, it is critical to ask: How has the dominant knowledge base for birth to three ...


The Nurturing Care Framework: From Policies To Parents, Linda Richter 2019 Bank Street College of Education

The Nurturing Care Framework: From Policies To Parents, Linda Richter

Occasional Paper Series

When most people think of early childhood development, what comes to mind is preprimary school learning; similarly, when they think about how best to ensure a child turns out well, their thoughts turn to adolescents. The FrameWorks Institute in Washington, DC, calls this “aging up,” a phenomenon that has been demonstrated as a bias in policy and public thinking in several countries, including South Africa (Richter, Tomlinson, Watt, Hunt, & Lindland, 2019). Yet it is the earliest period of life, from conception to two to three years of age, that most strongly regulates our trajectory across the course of our lives ...


Infant Toddler Care And Education: Speaking Up For Young Children And Their Caregivers, Virginia Casper, Sharon Ryan 2019 Bank Street College of Education

Infant Toddler Care And Education: Speaking Up For Young Children And Their Caregivers, Virginia Casper, Sharon Ryan

Occasional Paper Series

Much of the policy-and practice-focused research on infant-toddler care and education has been concerned with the issue of program quality. That is, what elements constitute a quality program for infants and toddlers that ensures their ongoing developmental success? Researchers have sought to identify the structural and process indicators necessary for young children to receive the kinds of responsive interactions that contribute to positive developmental outcomes.


The Value Of Interactive Multimodal Online Higher Education Classrooms: Examining The Impact Of Interactive Multimedia-Based Instructional Design (Imbid), Andrea Munro 2019 Brandman University

The Value Of Interactive Multimodal Online Higher Education Classrooms: Examining The Impact Of Interactive Multimedia-Based Instructional Design (Imbid), Andrea Munro

Dissertations

Purpose: Despite their affordability and convenience, online courses have higher student failure and dropout rates than ground based-courses. The purpose of this quantitative causal-comparative single-case study was to determine if there is a difference between interactive, multimedia-based online instruction and traditional text-based online instruction as it relates to the level of student performance, engagement, and satisfaction in higher education.

Methodology: This quantitative research design used inferential statistics to analyze the research questions. The researcher selected 13 text-based courses that were redesigned to become interactive, multimedia-based courses. Archival student performance, engagement, and satisfaction data was abstracted from both the text-based and ...


Ofelia García: A Transformative Thinker And Leader, Cecilia M. Espinosa 2019 Lehman College/CUNY

Ofelia García: A Transformative Thinker And Leader, Cecilia M. Espinosa

Journal of Multilingual Education Research

In this essay, I describe the ways in which Ofelia García's work influenced the field of bilingual education and multilingualism, as well as my thinking over the years as a bilingual educator. Dr. García has been a model of what it means to be an intellectual who is deeply connected to the importance of engaging in transformative theoretical ideas. Her ideas, in turn, have proven to have profound implications for pedagogy that impacts the education of emergent bilinguals. Her work is deeply grounded in understandings about language and language development as it exists in the world. Her perspective is ...


Pushing The Field & Practice: Ofelia García’S Reflective And Responsive Approach To Educational Innovation, Laura Ascenzi-Moreno, Sara Vogel 2019 Brooklyn College

Pushing The Field & Practice: Ofelia García’S Reflective And Responsive Approach To Educational Innovation, Laura Ascenzi-Moreno, Sara Vogel

Journal of Multilingual Education Research

Ofelia García’s vision for educational equity for emergent bilinguals has always put children and their agency within social contexts at its heart. This essay draws upon Ofelia’s own writing and the experiences of the authors -- a current and a former student of hers -- to explore how centering people’s dynamic bilingual practices has been a source of innovation for bilingual education theory and practice.


Trans + Languaging: Beyond Dual Language Bilingual Education, Cristian R. Solorza 2019 Bank Street College of Education

Trans + Languaging: Beyond Dual Language Bilingual Education, Cristian R. Solorza

Journal of Multilingual Education Research

Ofelia García calls for a re-imagining of bilingual education by challenging how teachers conceptualize, facilitate, and listen to language use in classrooms. Educators attempt to legitimize students' authentic, fluid, and dynamic language practices through translanguaging, but non-standard named language varieties are still marginalized in classrooms. Using the prefix trans+, García pushes us to look beyond bilingual education to critically challenge hegemonic language ideologies and to break from the monoglossic status quo within dual language bilingual education. Bilingual educators are tasked with envisioning language pedagogies that keep our emergent bilingual students whole, as they learn to leverage and expand their ...


Critical Research With An Eye On Monday Morning: La Investigación Comprometida De Ofelia García, Guadalupe Valdés 2019 Stanford University

Critical Research With An Eye On Monday Morning: La Investigación Comprometida De Ofelia García, Guadalupe Valdés

Journal of Multilingual Education Research

This essay by Guadalupe Valdés reflects on the influence of Ofelia García on her own experiences and as well as on the field of bilingual education. As a reader, educator, and researcher concerning emergent bilingual children, the author shares many of the same challenges. She expresses her deep felt sense of gratitude for what Ofelia García has done for the profession, for teachers, and for children.


The Emergence Of Translanguaging Pedagogy: A Dialogue Between Theory And Practice, Jim Cummins 2019 University of Toronto and Åbo Akademi University, Finland

The Emergence Of Translanguaging Pedagogy: A Dialogue Between Theory And Practice, Jim Cummins

Journal of Multilingual Education Research

My goal in this paper is to contribute to the process of bringing practice and theory into active dialogue. Initially, I review some early instructional examples of crosslinguistic pedagogy involving emergent bilingual students. I then focus on more recent examples from the Canadian context that illustrate the emerging role of classroom teachers as knowledge-generators. Through their practice, these educators have challenged the assumption that schools serving multilingual students have no option but to be English-only zones. Finally, I explore some of the ways in which these instructional innovations illuminate theoretical understandings of translanguaging and crosslinguistic pedagogy more generally.


Ofelia García And The Cuny-Nysieb Community: Symbiosis In Furthering Translanguaging Pedagogy And Practice, María Teresa Sánchez, Kate Menken 2019 Hunter College, City of New York

Ofelia García And The Cuny-Nysieb Community: Symbiosis In Furthering Translanguaging Pedagogy And Practice, María Teresa Sánchez, Kate Menken

Journal of Multilingual Education Research

Ofelia García’s scholarship on dynamic bilingualism and translanguaging has been at the core of CUNY-NYSIEB. At the same time, CUNY-NYSIEB’s work in schools has furthered her own scholarship on translanguaging pedagogy and that of the field as a whole. It is this rich symbiosis that we describe in this article.

Minority Languages, National State Languages, And English In Europe: Multilingual Education In The Basque Country And Friesland, Jasone Cenoz, Durk Gorter 2019 University of the Basque Country, UPV/EHU

Minority Languages, National State Languages, And English In Europe: Multilingual Education In The Basque Country And Friesland, Jasone Cenoz, Durk Gorter

Journal of Multilingual Education Research

This article focuses on minority languages in education in Europe in contexts where they are in contact with national state languages and English. Teaching minority language implies bilingual education because it is not about replacing the majority language, but to come ‘alongside’ or at ‘equal footing’. The cases of Basque and Frisian, comparing and contrasting their similarities and differences, are analyzed. Schools in these regions desire to go beyond bilingualism and to promote multilingualism as an important aim in education. The contribution of Ofelia García’s work to research in these contexts is discussed.

Journal of Multilingual Education Research

As a tribute to Ofelia García, I describe five events in my life that were influenced by our meetings and collaboration. These events span the years of our first meeting in 1992 through my role to introduce Dr. García before her Keynote Address at a Bilingual Education & Translanguaging Conference in 2016.


Top Ten Lessons Learned From Ofelia García: Researching, Teaching And Living From The Heart, Tatyana Kleyn, Kate Seltzer 2019 The City College of New York, CUNY

Top Ten Lessons Learned From Ofelia García: Researching, Teaching And Living From The Heart, Tatyana Kleyn, Kate Seltzer

Journal of Multilingual Education Research

For nearly forty years, the work of Dr. Ofelia García has steered not only the field of bilingual education, but also Spanish language education, teaching English to speakers of other languages, and sociolinguistics. As our professor, mentor, colleague, and friend, Dr. García has taught us many powerful lessons. Here, we describe ten of these, including some pertaining to academic and theoretical contributions, as well as some related to advocacy work in multilingualism. We conclude by describing the impact she has had on diverse academic fields through the CUNY-NYSIEB research project, in which she has mobilized her passions to promote educational ...
