Journal of Research in Childhood Education, v14 n1 p26-35 Fall-Win 1999
Examined developmentally appropriate practices (DAP) and effects of teachers' DAP beliefs/practices on first graders' social skills and academic achievement. Found that students taught by teachers with developmentally inappropriate beliefs had higher language achievement than others. Students whose teachers' practices were neither appropriate nor inappropriate had higher mathematics achievement than others. Teachers' DAP beliefs/practices were associated with positive social skills. (Author/KB)
