Event description

Description

Alison Clark and Jessica Kingsley Publishers invite you to the book launch of the expanded third edition of Listening to Young Children: a guide to understanding and using the Mosaic approach.

Combining the authors' successful books Listening to Young Children and Spaces to Play into an expanded and fully updated third edition, this book builds on the authors' original ground-breaking work by commenting on the development and adaptation of the Mosaic approach, along with case studies of the Mosaic approach in action in four countries: England, Denmark, Norway and Australia. The book is designed to be of particular value to early childhood students, PGCE primary students and early childhood practitioners including new material on the ethical and methodological issues involved.

Viewing children as 'experts in their own lives', the Mosaic approach offers a creative framework for understanding young children's perspectives through talking, walking, making and reviewing material with an adult. This book demonstrates how children's views and experiences can stay in focus in early childhood provision. The multi-method approach brings together digital tools with interviewing and observation to enable adults to review current practice and implement change with children.

Alison will be available to discuss recent collaborations in adapting the Mosaic approach. Peter Moss, Emeritus Professor of Early Childhood Provision at UCL Institute of Education, will give a short address.

Refreshments will be available together with copies of the new book at an exclusive 10% discount. Please be aware that the event has limited capacity. Tickets are therefore available on a first-come, first-served basis. If you would like to join us for this free event, please register for a ticket here.

'I was delighted to see this third version appear, both because the topic is important and because Alison Clark and the Mosaic Approach impact fundamentally the way educational communities perceive children.'
- Alma Fleet, Honorary Associate Professor at Institute of Early Childhood, Macquarie University, NSW, Australia.
