dc.description.abstractThis report provides a review key literature and research on age-appropriate pedagogies in the early years of schooling. It examines the features of age-appropriate pedagogies that engage young children and achieve effective learning outcomes, and considers the alignment of these learning and teaching approaches with current school accountability expectations. The paper is guided by a belief that debates which position pedagogical approaches as binary opposites are unhelpful. For example, it rejects the notion that play and explicit instruction are mutually exclusive, offering instead the view that they can co-exist and that both are beneficial, dependent upon the participants, context, purpose, and duration of learning experiences. As such, this report adopts the view that pedagogies need to be varied and also recognises the co-constructed nature of pedagogy. This perspective recognises that pedagogies need to take account of age, background, and abilities of individual learners as well as the interests of both children and teachers. These beliefs frame this discussion and are provided here in order to ensure that the possibilities inherent within a range of pedagogical approaches, including play-based approaches, are presented. There are six sections in the paper.
