Title variants
Languages of publication
In relation to the two previous chapters whose main aim was to provide the range of theoretical issues concerning the field, this chapter is to scrutinize the matter in a more practical way. Therefore, the chapter then begins with the set of introductory issues describing the field of interest, which is presented by young children at the pre-school age in kindergarten context. Later on, some features characterizing the groups of children involved are provided in order to trace any potential obstacles to the subsequent observation. The following section, then, contains a brief description of the lessons which children took part in. Findings gathered on the basis of previous observation as well as conclusions and implications are to constitute the closing part of this chapter.
