    Description

    This study reports two cases studies of teachers managing challenges associated with gaining acceptance for “child-centredness” curriculum practices in the Hong Kong SAR. These teachers intended to respond to the newly published “Guide to the Pre-primary Curriculum (2006)” by adopting a more humanistic pedagogical approach in their teaching and learning practices. The research has revealed a gap to what the teachers have expected to be promises associated with the teaching practices and the actual challenges they faced while implementing the humanistic curriculum. Implications of these findings, both challenges and promises, were discussed to provide references for practitioners in the field.
