Dr. Patrick J. Lewis and Karen O. Wallace

Trauma affects the lives of many children who we teach in school. It effects the students, teachers who teach them, the administration, and the school community as it is part of the school environment and culture. Teachers and administrators have great potential to set up an environment and adopt an attitude that can help heal the trauma in the lives of their students. Read more

New book: Learning to Teach Young Children

By: Anna Kirova, Larry Prochner, Christine Massing. (Dec. 2019).

Learning to Teach Young Children: Theoretical Perspectives and Implications for Practice. New York, NY: Bloomsbury.


Learning to Teach Young Children provides you with the tools to critically engage with the key concepts and beliefs in early childhood education theory and practice. The book is organized around ten propositions that are explored in relation to 30 key questions, for example:
– What does it mean to honour children’s right to be different?
– What does it mean to learn?
– How can images of childhood be used as frames for practice?

Original comic-book style illustrations are used to explore key theoretical concepts in an accessible and engaging way. The book also includes a companion website offering overviews of the key concepts covered in the book, supplementary information and references, reflective questions and case studies to support your learning.” Source

Internationalizing Curriculum Studies | New edited book

Dr. Cristyne Hébert, co-Editor of Internationalizing Curriculum Studies: Histories, Environments, and Critiques, is an Assistant Professor in the Faculty of Education at the University of Regina.

Abstract: How do we internationalize that which is deeply provincial and national? Situating our focus on and interest squarely within curriculum studies, how do we internationalize without imperializing or imposing old, colonial, and so-called “First World” conceptualizations of education on teaching, learning, and curriculum? Let us not anticipate simple answers to such complex questions. Being under no illusion that we hold Solomonic wisdom, we editors turned to the wisdom of others. A curricular response to such pedagogical questions is this edited volume.  Download at
