Queensland Year 2 Diagnostic Net and Teachers' Explanations of Literacy Failure.
Henderson, Robyn W.
Australian Journal of Education, v46 n1 p50-64 Jun 2002
Examined ways early childhood teachers in three Australian schools rationalized children's literacy failure on Queensland's Year 2 Diagnostic Net. Found that teachers' narratives clustered into three groups: blaming families, blaming children, and moving beyond blame to focus on teaching; all teachers based pedagogical intervention decisions on a deficit model of literacy learning.
