Conversational Response Latencies of Teachers and Reticent Children.
Evans, Mary Ann
This study examined the response latencies of 19 reticent kindergarten children, 19 peer controls, and their teachers during three "show and tell" sessions. Findings indicated that both groups of children took longer to respond to product questions than to choice questions or comments. Similarly, teachers waited longer for responses to product questions and waited equally long for both groups. However, after verbal children spoke, teachers waited longer before making a follow-up remark. Findings are discussed in terms of response complexity, teacher expectancy, support and control, and communication development. (Author/RH)
