Cognitive Style and Kindergarten Pupils' Preferences for Teachers.
Saracho, Olivia N.
Learning and Instruction, v11 n3 p195-209 Jun 2001
Investigated which cognitive style characteristics 846 kindergarten students considered important in a teacher. Determined students' own cognitive styles and their ratings of preferred teacher characteristics through their responses to a field dependence independence (FDI) measure. Field dependent teachers received higher ratings, and a preference for a field dependence-independence match of students and teachers was found. (SLD)
