New Studies in Education: An Analytical Study of Teaching in Nursery School, Kindergarten, and First Grade


by Winifred E. Bain 1929

IN THIS investigation a scaled analysis was made of specific, observable, teaching acts, typical of procedures in nursery school, kindergarten, and first grade. 1The purpose of the study was to furnish an objective instrument useful to supervisors and teachers in differentiating strong and weak points in teaching procedures. The instrument thus constructed directs the attention of observers to everyday experiences of teachers and children in the learning situation. Each general item is scaled on a basis of five points, representing degrees of efficiency, each point being illustrated by descriptions of specific teaching acts. Success in the use of the scale depends upon the ability of raters to match procedures observed with the samples or illustrations given for each scale point.
