Preschool teachers’ preparation programs in Turkey: A multi-level analysis of variables on classroom management models
Anahtar Kelimeler:Early childhood education, Undesired behaviors, Classroom management models, Preservice teachers
ÖzetThis quantitative study aimed to address variables related to six classroom management models used by 1323 preservice preschool teachers: behavioral change theory, Dreikurs, Canter, Glasser, Kounin, and Gordon models. Data were collected using a demographic characteristics form and the Classroom Management Strategy Determination Scale. Data were analyzed using hierarchical linear modeling. Results showed that the classroom management course taught by experts helped preservice preschool teachers choose the right models. Gender played a role in Dreikurs’ social discipline model, while undergraduate education played a role in Canter’s assertive discipline model.
