Differential Impact of Preschool Models on Development and Early Learning of Inner-City Children: A Three-Cohort Study.
Marcon, Rebecca A.
Developmental Psychology, v35 n2 p358-75 Mar 1999
Examined impact of three preschool models identified through cluster analysis of teacher-survey responses on 4-year olds' development and basic-skill mastery. Found that children in the child-initiated model demonstrated greater skill mastery than children in programs emphasizing academics and skill instruction. Children in the combination model did more poorly on almost all measures than others. Girls generally outperformed boys. (Author/KB)
