November 24 2009 Early Childhood Newsletter


Something close to home and "in season" that sparked an exploration worth sharing... here's the latest article from the Early Childhood site at BellaOnline.com. Despite this issue, I hope everyone (in the US, I suppose) has a lovely Thanksgiving Holiday.

The Claremont Thanksgiving Debate - http://www.bellaonline.com/articles/art39029.asp
In my suburban community in Southern California there are two public elementary schools that have traditionally celebrated together the week of Thanksgiving each year with a "Friendship Feast." But a debate over dressing as Native Americans and the authenticity of the event polarized my small town.



No Playing Indian at Thanksgiving - http://www.bellaonline.com/articles/art30719.asp
In response to the ongoing debate in my daughter's school district about whether it is appropriate to make Native American costumes and re-enact what is generally known as the First Thanksgiving, I decided to do some research on what is at the root of those who object to these traditions.

**I'd love to hear your thoughts. Please join the debate at my forum at http://forums.bellaonline.com/ubbthreads.php/topics/566801/No_Playing_Indian_at_Thanksgiv

I hope to hear from you sometime soon, either in the forum or in response to this email message. I thrive on your feedback!
