Qualitative vs. Quantitative Research  Qualitative information describes things in general (like when we observe the kids in the child learning lab)  Quantitative is more specific (height, weight, how often something occurs, etc.) Western Perspectives  In the pre-1600’s o Children were expected to be seen, not heard o They didn’t see children the way that we do today  1600-1900’s o People started to think that children were different than adults o This time period was influenced by the church o The goal of training children was to break the will of the child  1900-1950’s o All of a sudden people had the idea that children needed to be taken care of, educated, etc.  1950-2000 o A lot of childcare programs are established (head start, child development programs, etc.)  Is our world safer than it used to be? Or are we just now more aware of the bad things that happen today *Pat story in class  Try to become more familiar with different cultures for different ethnic backgrounds so you are aware why children may do certain things o EX: kids from Korea are from more of a collectivist society so they may be used to sharing all the time o There’s nothing that is “theirs” because everything is equally shared between everyone Non-Western Perspectives  Education has always been important  Infanticide is big (large numbers of children were killed)  Certain punishments could be seen as too strict to us, but they could be seen as survival tactics in different cultures Why study early childhood from a multicultural perspective?  There is a larger diverse population beginning to emerge in America  We’ve been moving away from the term minority because it has a negative stigma The difference between acknowledging/appreciating cultural differences  Appreciating cultural differences can show that you are interested in their culture/why they do things differently  Acknowledging/appreciating cultural differences could maybe mean “correlation/positive”  they might be acting a certain way because of their culture, not because they are a certain ethnic background Color Blind Approach  Is this the best way to handle differences in children’s culture and ethnic backgrounds? o Not necessarily, because this pushes aside cultural differences and the certain aspects that make people different and it is okay to be different and unique o Doesn’t teach children how to be culturally diverse/about cultural diversity  Remember that everyone is unique and different without singling people out  know that balance between the two
