File, Nancy; Gullo, Dominic F.
Early Childhood Research Quarterly, v17 n1 p126-37 2002
Viewpoints of 119 preservice teachers were examined at beginning or end of programs in early childhood (ECED) or elementary education (ELED). Compared to ELED students, ECED students favored primary education practices more consistent with constructivist nature of NAEYC guidelines in several areas. Student teachers favored more frequent use of less developmentally appropriate behavior management strategies than did beginning students. (Author/KB)
