Reflections on a Constructivist Approach to Teaching.
Hamilton, Debbie; Hitz, Randy
Journal of Early Childhood Teacher Education, v17 n1 p15-25 Win-Spr 1996
Describes the design, delivery, and impact of an undergraduate early childhood education course consistent with constructivist principles. Cites results from the Teachers' Belief Questionnaire and examination of student journals indicating students' knowledge and beliefs about teaching had changed. Suggests that helping students recognize preconceptions about teaching and challenging those ideas through cognitive conflict by reflection and problem solving facilitated learning. (KDFB)
