Teacher-Child Interactions in Preschool and Task Persistence
Hamilton, V. Jane; Gordon, Donald A.
American Educational Research Journal, 15, 3, 459-66, Sum 78
Several hypotheses were tested: (1) task behavior in a Montessori classroom and an experimental activity are correlated; (2) teacher criticism causes low task persistence in both situations; and (3) praise causes higher involvement in both situations. Results confirmed all hypotheses except that between classroom reward and experimental persistence. (Author/CP)
