Shim, Sook-Young; Herwig, Joan E.
Early Child Development and Care, v132 p45-55 May 1997
Examined beliefs and practices of Korean early childhood teachers. Found that public kindergarten teachers had more academic preparation and teaching experience and reported implementing more appropriate and fewer inappropriate teaching practices than other teachers. Child caregivers used more inappropriate teaching strategies than public or private kindergarten teachers. Teachers with nondirective teaching strategy beliefs used fewer inappropriate teaching practices. (Author/KB)
