Understanding children through their creations Understanding children through their creations Presentation Transcript

  • Understanding Children through their Creations
    • "The teacher whose child within has become like dead wood is not qualified to take responsibility of children. There ought to be not only closeness but also identity and mental similitude, otherwise there cannot be any exchange between the two .... The eternal child in a born teacher comes out in the open at the first call of the children.”
    • Rabindranath Tagore
  • Exploring the Perceptual World of the Child
  • The Growing Child
    • What Sources Can we use to understand the Growing Child – her emotions, capabilities and so on?
  • The Growing Child
    • Understand the Children by Exploring their unique perceptual world
    • In other words, Every Child has his or her own unique personal life space – Exploring this holds the key to proper understanding
  • How do we explore?
    • Child’s creations are the best source for Exploring their World, their Perceptions and Emotions
      • what they talk what they draw, what they play and play with, stories and characters they play-act
      • In many ways, Creations of a Child mirror his or her personality

  • The Growing Child
    • Emotions and capabilities are not static or finished goods
    • Let us remember that we are DEALING WITH A GROWING CHILD – emotions and capabilities are also evolving with age and environment

  • Personal Life Space to Social Life Space
    • Need not be the social space that we draw around them
    • Social space has its own hierarchy – mother, father, grand parents, other adults, siblings, neighbours, even pets, and so on
    • It is Originally Constructed by Every Child – not given by the adult world
    • Influence of media – fantasy world and the real world in the life of the Child
  •  
  •  
  • Moving from Physical Description to Behavioural manifestation
    • The statements like “I can jump”, I can dance, I can wear my clothes, become part of their self concept
    • As children grow, these descriptions become more complex
  •  
  • Personal Life Space to Social Life Space
    • With Growth and Development the personal life space of the Child Expands
    • Becomes Complex by Incorporating Other’s Perspectives through Interaction, Emulation and Learning
    • Leads to Creation of Unique Social Space by Every Child
  •  
  •  
  • Evolution of the Social Self
    • How others perceive gets incorporated
    • Views, comments, statements by significant people at home
    • Comments like, ‘you are smart, you are clumsy, ‘oh it is wonderful, you can do it!, Why cannot you do it properly?
  •  
  •

    • Expansion of child’s world as he/she grows. Learns, to express feelings and ideas, social world of the child expands, learns to make friends, shares, and co-operates with others.

    • Recognize that Each Child is a Unique Individual
      • All children of a particular age share certain common characteristics but each child is still unique and different.

  • Framework for Analyzing the Child’s Creation
