OP 35. Confronting the Split between "The Child" and Children: Toward New Curricular Visions of the

By Anne Haas Dyson

Summary: Dyson uses everyday school experiences with children to reconstruct our image of "the child." She considers dominant ways in which educators have constructed the concept of "the child writer," and illustrates one way of reconceiving that child. In the process, she suggests that rethinking dominant images might help teachers better meet current curricular challenges, especially the need to envision the child in ways that reflect belief in the diversity of children with whom teachers work. May, 1994; 20 pages.
