Young Children's Perspectives on Learning and Teacher Practices in Different Classroom Contexts: Implications for Motivation.
Daniels, Denise H.; Kalkman, Deborah L.; McCombs, Barbara L.
Early Education and Development, v12 n2 p253-73 Apr 2001
Investigated primary students' perceptions of teacher practices and learning in learner-centered (LC) and non-learner-centered (NLC) classroom contexts. Found that primary students valued similar characteristics in teachers regardless of classroom context or grade level. Children's interest in schoolwork and learning was lower in NLC classrooms than in LC classrooms, especially for students who perceived their teachers as nonsupportive and nonstimulating. (Author/KB)
