She considers it to be a global approach to education when it would seem to be much more important to meet individual needs. R E F L E C T I V E TA S K How can interactionism be applied to this case study? F E E DBACK We have emphasised that interactionists emphasise the importance of individuals and their ability to create and negotiate social meanings. The ‘personalised learning activities’ that are being applied within the case study appear to support what interactionism says. As opposed to emphasising the importance of the social group, interactionism places an emphasis on the importance of the individual.

The interactionist approach to sociology begins by asking how individuals interpret the social world and in turn negotiate social meanings. If Early Years practitioners adopt a similar philosophy, individual children and their rights are likely to become central to practice. This theme is emphasised in Nigel Parton’s (2005) text. It is considered to be vital that children’s individual needs are central to practice if quality child care provision is to be given. If an interactionist approach to Early Years work is adopted it is also more likely that the creativity of children will be acknowledged and incorporated into effective practice.

Appraising conflict theory It is also possible to criticise conflict theory in a similar way to the other two perspectives. This is because this sociological perspective, like functionalism and interactionism can be accused as having a one dimensional approach to explaining social systems. This is especially true with Marxist perspectives that often reduce their explanation for social phenomena to economic variables. Lopez and Scott (2000, p80) argue that the work of Habermas offers a potential solution to the tendency to focus on either ‘the social system’ or ‘the actions of individuals’ or ‘the economy’.
