The Translation of Theory Into Practice: A Study of Students' Perceptions of the Childhood Education Program.
Webb, Rodman B.; Guinagh, Barry J.
This is a study of two teams in the Childhood Education Program (CEP) at the University of Florida. It is an examination of how closely the program, as presently implemented, matches its own theoretical underpinnings. Volunteer CEP students helped to devise the questionnaire, which was given to two teams of CEP students. Some of the topics covered in the questionnaire were: (1) the CEP seminars; (2) community sessions; (3) the CEP faculty; (4) counseling and explanation of CEP; (5) field experience; and (6) learning activities. Separate discussions are presented for each of the six major topics in the questionnaire. The results of the data collected present the weaknesses and strengths of the program. Tables are included, and a copy of the questionnaire is appended. (RC)
