Enhancing mathematics teaching and learning in early childhood settings
Haynes, Maggie, 2007
Wellington, New Zealand: New Zealand Teaching and Learning Research Initiative.

The overall aim of the project was to engage early childhood teachers in investigating and improving their expertise in the teaching and learning of mathematics. The intention of the project was to develop a research environment through which researchers and kindergarten teachers worked collaboratively, using action research methodology, to explore means by which mathematical outcomes for children could be maximised. The research arose from the premise that within the field of mathematics education, while much has been written about mathematical experiences of both learners and teachers in the compulsory (school) sectors of education, very little is documented on mathematical learning and teaching in the early childhood sector from the perspective of the teacher, and particularly within Aotearoa New Zealand. The project engaged the kindergarten teachers through one cycle of action research: from reconnaissance, through intervention, to evaluation. This provided them with opportunities to self-select a relevant issue in mathematics teaching and learning through exploration and reflection on their own mathematics knowledge, their personal dispositions towards mathematics, and their teaching strategies. It was expected that changes in practice would improve mathematical outcomes for children. (author abstract)

An audit of research on early childhood care and education in Ireland 1990-2006 (2nd ed.)
Walsh, Thomas, 2007
(2nd ed.). Dublin, Ireland: Centre for Early Childhood Development and Education.

The Second Edition of the Audit of Research is divided into three substantive sections. First of all, the Introduction provides a background and rationale for the Audit and is presented in the following three divisions: Context for the development of the Second Edition of the Audit of Research; A description of the initial Audit of Research produced in 2003 (CECDE, 2003a); An overview of the Second Edition of the Audit of Research, including the methodology employed in its compilation, an outline of the twenty-four themes and their associated sub-themes, findings of interest, research gaps identified and details of the online searchable research database. Secondly, the publications within the Second Edition of the Audit of Research are organised into twenty-four themes of research. Sixteen relate to the Standards within Siolta, the National Quality Framework for Early Childhood Education (CECDE, 2006a), while there are an additional eight more general themes. Furthermore, the majority of these are further broken down into a number of sub-themes in order to make the Audit more accessible and navigable. (author abstract)
