Predicting Preschoolers' Activity Choices. Careers in Integrated Early Childhood Programs.
Gorelick, Molly C.
A study was undertaken with 64 children (3 to 5 years of age) whose IQs ranged from 50 to 150 to determine what learning center activities preschool children would choose when teachers were not present and to determine how accurately teachers would predict their students' choices. Activity areas to which the Ss went were recorded on video tape and by teachers and observers behind a one-way mirror. Before the children entered the room, teachers had recorded predictions as to the number of male and female children who would be at a particular learning center at specified time intervals. Results are being analyzed. (LS)
