A Principal's or Administrator's Guide to Kindergarten: What to Look for in Kindergarten Programmes and How to Know When You See It.
Nash, B. Chris
This guide suggests an observation strategy to be used by principals or administrators to assess the strengths and weaknesses of the kindergarten program in their schools. The observation strategy is based on description and analyses of four dimensions of a learning environment: space, time, people and things. Section I contains a series of articles intended to provide the reader with information about research and development of each dimension. The program observation schedules described in Section II have been designed to provide the administrator or the consultant with adequate information from which constructive help with program development can be given to the teacher. The student progress evaluation guide, to be used by teachers, is presented in Section III. (Author/MP)
