Language and Literacy Development in Nature Preschools
MetadataShow full item record
There were 140 participants, and two school types (Nature, Traditional). Assessments were done at two time points (Fall, Spring). Tests were done on language and literacy: Letter Name Knowledge (LNK), Letter Sound Knowledge (LSK), and the Test of Preschool Early Literacy (TOPEL). There was a significant difference between Fall and spring for both LNK and LSK (p < .0005 for both) but no significant difference between school type (p = .418, p = .645). TOPEL found no significant differences between time (Fall, Spring) or school (p = .511, p = .937).
