Over the years researchers have found the necessity to develop theories of behavior that are specific to family settings. These theories have been developed by people with a variety of areas of emphasis, from family therapists to gerontologists to child development specialists. In this chapter we will briefly discuss six such theories: Bioecological Model, Family Systems, Functionalism, Conflict Theory, Symbolic Interactionism, and Psychological Perspectives.

El Rol De La Equidad Y La Diversidad En La Educación De La Primera Infancia
Unrestricted Use
CC BY
Rating
0.0 stars

Esta introducción fue modificada desde el principio de la publicación Family Partnerships and Culture (Asociaciones familiares y culturales en español), por el Departamento de Educación de California y utilizando la declaración de posición de Avanzando en equidad en la educación en la primera infancia, de la Asociación Nacional para la Educación de Niños Pequeños. Estas sabias palabras enmarcan el propósito de este libro y el curso para el que se está utilizando, los cuales solo son el comienzo del viaje.

Aunque la mayoría de las familias utilizan algún tipo de cuidado fuera del hogar, los niños menores de cinco años continúan pasando la mayor parte de su primera infancia en el entorno familiar. En consecuencia, las familias continúan desempeñando un papel especialmente importante en la formación del curso del desarrollo temprano de los niños. Por esta razón, las familias son miembros invaluables en los programas para la primera infancia.

Guiadas por creencias y principios culturales, las familias seleccionan experiencias, transmiten actitudes e imparten conocimiento a sus hijos para prepararlos para la edad adulta. Por esto, es importante que el personal del programa aprenda a colaborar eficazmente con las familias. Para desarrollar una colaboración y aprovechar la familia como recurso principal, los educadores de la primera infancia deben acercarse, aprender y desarrollar colaboraciones sólidas con las familias. Este proceso requiere tener una actitud receptiva al aprendizaje y hacer un esfuerzo por comprender la individualidad de cada familia y la diversidad de las familias de donde provienen los niños.

A lo largo de los años, los investigadores encontraron la necesidad de desarrollar teorías de comportamiento que sean específicas de los entornos familiares. Estas teorías fueron desarrolladas por diversos expertos en un sinnúmero de ramas, desde terapeutas familiares hasta gerontólogos y especialistas en desarrollo infantil. En este capítulo hablaremos brevemente sobre seis de estas teorías: el modelo ecológico, los sistemas familiares, el funcionalismo, la teoría del conflicto, el interaccionismo simbólico y las perspectivas psicológicas.

Welcome to a new and exciting endeavor…your official supervised fieldwork experience! This course is structured to be the bridge between the courses you have already taken and the “real world” of working with children and families.

It is a time of great anticipation and adventure!

As we developed this course, we found ourselves using terms related to construction; “solid foundation”, “building skills”, “mastering tools of the trade”, “revising plans”, and most importantly “successful building seems to be under on-going construction”. Thus, we adopted the theme of construction and the motto “the road to success is always under construction”, attributed to Lily Tomlin, known for trying new things and making people smile.

In this course, it is time for you to take charge of your own learning and construct your own road to success! Each of your journeys will be slightly different because you are all unique. This is not a “one size fits all” course. You will all have the same basic tasks and tools, but the things that each of you want to master to be the best teacher that YOU CAN BE moving forward are yours and yours alone.

Constructing a road to success is not always easy. A basic plan is a good place to start as long as it is approached with flexibility and an openness to change. Mistakes are inevitable and can be celebrated as opportunities to learn new things! A sense of adventure awaits! Be inspired!

Throughout the semester your construction project will take on many twists and turns, so enjoy the journey! You will work in a variety of ways with a supportive construction crew, and are encouraged to take on as many tasks as you can, pushing yourself a little further out of your comfort zone each time! This handbook will introduce you to the foundations of the course. Each portion will be discussed further as the course progresses, so do not be alarmed if you look at something not yet covered and are puzzled. Construction takes time and is built upon prior foundations! By the end it will all make sense! So take a deep breath, gather your construction tools, and let’s get started!
