The purpose of this study was to investigate the use of action research by ten preservice teachers in early childhood from a small university in the West. Their goal was to assess the impact of their teaching on student learning with children birth to 8 years of age. The preservice teachers studied the effects of specific learning strategies or activities, first upon the development and learning of the young children they taught, and then upon the results from the assessments in order to guide further instruction.

Preservice Teachers' Perceptions of Culture in Early Care and Education Programs on a Native American Indian Reservation
The authors studied the perceptions of early childhood education preservice teachers versus in-service teachers regarding family and community culture on two Indian reservations in Montana. The observations were conduced at three day care centers and the teachers were then asked to fill out interview questionnaires. Findings indicate that the preservice teachers struggled with the difference between infusing culture into curriculum and delivering curriculum in a culturally responsive context.
