Research Around the World


While exploring Early Childhood Australia’s website there were many topics of current research. Some of the topics include: attachment, cooperation and sharing, empathy and feelings, play, early literacy, writing, school readiness, brain research, etc.

I perused several articles however, the article that struck my interest was Developmental Discipline. The article gives four ways that developmental discipline is achieved: building a warm teacher-child relationship, developing children’s cognitive moral understanding, creating a caring community and using classroom control techniques (setting expectations, indirect control, reminders, teaching social behavior and power assertion). This is a great article for the beginning of the school year as we begin to set the stage and climate of a building.
