Application: Co-Creating Culture, Equity, and Social Justice—An Evaluation

Bring to mind the key elements of your studies this week: Through the resources, you were introduced to the concept of working for social justice; you familiarized yourself with theoretical ideas about child development as a cultural process; you studied ways in which children actively place themselves into culture and, through personal relationships, transform it; and you examined questions about social justice and equity in early childhood environments.

For this assignment, write a formal analysis paper, at least 3 pages in length, in which you demonstrate your comprehension of the nature and the implications of the topics you studied this week.

    • What other positive contributions to honoring diversity and working for equity and social justice do you discern as a consequence of intergenerational relationships in early childhood environments?
