Early Childhood Education: Teacher Behavior from a Cross Cultural Perspective: Further Observations.
Bell, Patricia Ann
Reported are conclusions from the continuation of an investigation into cross-cultural aspects of education of children of 3-8 years of age. Discussion focuses on educational practices in Australia, Austria, India, Russia, and Zimbabwe. Topics include teacher actions and verbalizations, and school organization and administration. Teacher actions are discussed in terms of behavior toward individuals, small groups, large groups or whole classes, and teacher demonstrations of lesson content. The material on teacher verbalization focuses on such behavior as contributing bodily presence, responding to requests of children, elaborating on information already given, asking children to respond, and intervening to help students give the desired response. Concluding discussion includes notes on organization and administration, specifically pupil-teacher ratio, teacher and in-service training, and financial support. (RH)
