Teacher Responses to Learning Cycle Science Lessons for Early Childhood Education
by Kraemer, Emily N., M.S., California State University, Long Beach, 2017, 44; 10639244
Abstract (Summary)

Three learning cycle science lessons were developed for preschoolers in an early childhood children’s center in Costa Mesa, California. The lessons were field tested by both novice and experienced teachers with children ranging from three to five years old. Teachers were then interviewed informally to collect feedback on the structure and flow the lessons. The feedback was encouraging remarks towards the use of learning cycle science lessons for early childhood educators. Adjustments were made to the lessons based on teacher feedback. The lessons and their implications for preschool education are discussed.
