An Annotated Bibliography of the Importance of Developmentally Appropriate Practices in Today's Kindergartens.
Pulliam, Katherine H.
A literature review on developmentally appropriate practices in kindergarten and remedies for inappropriate practices was conducted. The review resulted in four sets of annotated references: (1) a total of 18 annotations concerning factors influencing the developmental point of view; (2) a total of 14 annotations dealing with the effects of inappropriate kindergarten practices; (3) a total of 23 annotations focusing on possible remedies to problems caused by inappropriate practices; and (4) a total of 20 annotations concerning ways in which a developmentally appropriate kindergarten program can benefit all children. A summary of findings from the research follows the annotated citations. It is concluded that too many kindergartners are being categorized as failures as a result of inappropriate practices. Six general recommendations for appropriate practices are offered. (RH)
