Transcript: The 1941-1942 Junior League Docent Training Course Conducted by the Metropolitan Museum of Art: An Examination of Museum Education Beliefs and Convictions towards Volunteer Educators by Elizabeth Roath 2010 What convictions about art education and docent programming did the participants from the Metropolitan Museum of Art and the Junior League possess when they met for the docent-training course in September 1941? How did this seminar reflect the various beliefs museum education staff held towards volunteer docents and what precedent was set for the relationship between Junior League members and museum educators at this time? - Filling in the gaps of history of docents and museum education - my (potential) future work with docents from the Junior League Francis Henry Taylor: Director Richard Bach: Head of Education Helen T.

Transcript: Thesis Proposal Presentation Roia Dagher Representation of Diverse Cultures in Children’s Picture Books Local Library Intro Roia Dagher Chapter 1 Introduction & Rationale Chapter 1 Background In today's society, cultural diversity is seen as an important aspect of learning how to grow as a person with the knowledge and understanding of cultural differences. Public libraries serve an important role A library collection, which contains books of diverse characters and backgrounds, completely reaffirms young people's sense of identity and the importance of their tradition (Williams & Deyoe, 2014, pg. 98). In early childhood education, Children begin to develop a sense of what is being represented in the world Educators can bring value to children's literature Multicultural children's books can be used widely by teachers to help students develop diverse perspectives (Iwai, 2015, p.82). Problem Statement Multicultural literature, especially when combined with exploratory practices has been shown to increase cultural sensitivity and appreciation among young children (Howrey & Whelan-Kim, 2009, p.125). The types of children's picture books accessible to the community in the public library have an impact on children's recognition and awareness of diverse cultures. Specifically, the diverse cultures represented in the community can have an effect on the types of cultures portrayed in children's picture books in the local library. Purpose of the Study examine whether the various cultures represented in the community can affect the types of cultures represented in the children's picture books of the local library. Research Question How is cultural diversity represented in children's picture books at two local libraries? Rationale Over the past century there has been a dramatic increase in cultural diversity within communities in Ontario. It is important that those who influence the development and distribution of children's books have the expertise and cultural insight they need when dealing with texts. Themes in children's stories tend to be similar and provide a common ground that can serve as a basis for respectful and substantive discussion of differences (Howrey & Whelan-Kim, 2009, p.125). Chapter 2 Theoretical basis & Literature Review Chapter 2 Theoretical Basis Bronfenbrenner's ecological systems theory The ecological system model consists of five levels of the environment— the microsystem, the mesosystem, the exosystem, macrosystem and Chronosystem—with each level having a different effect on each individual's development (Bronfenbrenner, 1979). Ecological viewpoint is useful because it enables a simultaneous emphasis on the individual child's features, the vital home setting, and the pervasive cultural environment (Jordan, 2004, p. 196). Literature Review Key Themes Importance of Multicultural children’s literature Excellent platform for educators and children to focus on cultural issues (Howrey & Whelan-Kim, 2009, p.125) Educators Reflections on Multicultural Literature Teachers who want to connect with the concept of diversity will either review collections of children's books that can be found on the web or visit their local public library Literature Review Importance of Children Seeing Themselves in Books When children cannot identify with a book or see their lives celebrated through stories, it may have a negative impact on their self-image (Koss, 2015, p.32). Chapter 3 Methodology Approach Chapter 3 Research Design Qualitative study Content analysis, as a technique, provides new insights, increases the understanding of specific phenomena by a researcher, or informs practical actions (Krippendorff, 1980, p.21). Content analysis Research technique for constructing replicable and accurate inferences from texts (or other relevant subjects) to the context of their use (Krippendorff, 1980, p.21). Sampling Technique Homogeneous sampling "Certain sites or individuals are selected because they possess a similar trait or characteristic" (Mertler, 2019, p.168). Data Collection Selection of books Ten children's picture books from Hamilton public library Staff recommendation list Ten children's picture books from St. Catharine's public library Librarian used advanced search bar Data Analysis Coding Process Deductive Categories are predetermined Template Analysis Refers to a group of techniques which thematically organize textual data Scope and Limitations Scope The main focus of this study is to explore the representation of cultural diversity in children's picture books at two libraries in Southern Ontario.
