Primary Teachers' Beliefs about Children's Development.
Smith, Leslie
Educational Psychology: An International Journal of Experimental Educational Psychology, v11 n2 p111-28 1991
Reports research on teachers' beliefs about children's development. Discusses (1) teachers' estimates of ages at which children succeed on tasks, (2) teachers' ability to engage in task analysis, (3) their view of children's error, and (4) their view of developmental accounts. Concludes that good teachers' beliefs provide an inadequate basis for improving common teaching practice. (DK)
