The Role of the Teacher in the Infant and Nursery School.
Gardner, Dorothy E.M.; Cass, Joan E.
This publication is intended to help teachers of young children in the informal preschool setting, particularly infant school teachers in England. Details of what 48 selected nursery and infant school teachers did and said during classroom "free time" periods were recorded by trained observers. This data is included in this book to provide some clarification of what constitutes good and successful teaching at that level. Also discussed in this book are developments in English infant and nursery schools and teachers' functions therein. A bibliography is included. (WD)
