Preschool Teachers' Talk, Roles, and Activity Settings during Free Play.
Kontos, Susan
Early Childhood Research Quarterly, v14 n3 p363-82 1999
Examined 22 Head Start teachers' involvement in activity settings, their roles, and their talk during free play. Found that teachers were most often in the role of play enhancer/playmate and stage manager. Teachers spent most time in constructive and manipulative activity settings. Their talk focused most often on statements and questions supporting play with objects, and practical/personal assistance. (Author/HTH)
