Social Justice and Agency in ECE Settings

Social Justice and Agency in ECE Settings

Children’s agency is centred on the beliefs that children have a right to participate in decisions that affect them, are capable of making choices and decisions, and can initiate and lead their own learning. In this course, you will consider the frameworks and models of children’s participation in which the concept of agency can be considered and theorised. Social justice and children’s rights are considered as important interrelated concepts.

You will identify and discuss children’s agency and how it can be supported or inhibited. Ways of listening to children and ensuring their authentic participation, particularly with regard to their learning, are considered.
