    Project Details


    This study examined the forms and practices of ritual in two ECE Classroom settings through field observations, observational records and interviews to see how different rituals have effected on children’s learning. The findings have suggested that the teacher who is willing to change her traditional pedagogical ritual form to a new ritualistic pedagogical form has experienced a shift in her mythical value system; whereas for the other teacher who upholds her original ritualistic pedagogy has experienced no change in her mythical value system. Both claimed that young children who were taught under their rituals have got the effective learning impact.
