Kindergarten Teachers' Beliefs about Students' Knowledge of Print Literacy and Parental Involvement in Children's Print Literacy Development
Lynch, Jacqueline
Alberta Journal of Educational Research, v56 n2 p157-171 Sum 2010
This research was an exploratory study in a large city in central Canada that examined kindergarten teachers' beliefs about students' knowledge of print literacy, as well as their beliefs about parental involvement with children in print literacy activities. The role of families' socioeconomic status was examined in relation to teachers' beliefs. Based on completed questionnaires, significant differences were found in teachers' beliefs about aspects of children's print literacy knowledge as well as in areas of parent-child print literacy involvement based on the SES of families. Findings from this research provide important insight into kindergarten teachers' beliefs.
