AERA to Release New Volume on Early Childhood Research in October

September  2020

In October, AERA will release a groundbreaking volume on a high-profile topic very much on the agenda of state and national policy leaders: Advancing Knowledge and Building Capacity for Early Childhood Research, edited by Sharon Ryan, M. Elizabeth Graue, Vivian L. Gadsden, and Felice J. Levine. The table of contents can be viewed here. The volume will be available for advance purchase on the AERA website, in print, eBook, and print/eBook bundle formats.

The volume employs a multidisciplinary approach to research on early childhood development and education. In their introduction, the editors note that the book aims to “reflect how scholarly perspectives shape the contours of knowledge generation.” They hope that the book will “illuminate the invisible gaps that prevent productive interchange among scholars who value equity in the opportunities available to young children, their families, and teachers/caregivers.”

The volume emanated from a conference at the AERA headquarters: “Advancing Knowledge and Building Capacity for Early Childhood Research: Creating Synergies Among Segregated Scholarly Communities.” The conference examined the state of the knowledge, identified critical research areas, considered promising research designs and methodologies, and assessed capacity-building needs and potential approaches to innovative collaborations. The participants explored the state of early childhood research, links to policy and practice, and the interplay of the two.

Through the end of the year, AERA members will receive an additional 30 percent off the member price for this book, as well as for all other AERA volumes, including the Handbook of Research on Teaching and Standards for Educational and Psychological Testing.
