Abstract


METAPHORICAL PERCEPTIONS OF PRESCHOOL TEACHERS REGARDING THE CONCEPTS OF PRESCHOOL EDUCATION AND PRESCHOOL EDUCATION PROGRAM

This research was conducted to reveal the perceptions of preschool teachers about the concepts of "preschool education" and "preschool education program" through metaphors. The study was carried out according to the phenomenology pattern, one of the qualitative research designs. According to the data of the study, 58 preschool teachers, 54 females and 4 males, working in the city center of Eskişehir in the fall semester of the 2019-2020 academic year, stated that “Preschool education is like ……, Because ……” and “Preschool education program is like ….., because……..” is reached by completing the sentences. The data collected within the scope of the research were analyzed with the content analysis technique and then the analyzed data were interpreted. According to the findings, preservice teachers produced 42 valid metaphors for the concept of "preschool education" and 56 valid metaphors for the concept of "preschool education program". These produced metaphors were then categorized by considering their common features and analogy aspects. As a result of this process, eight categories for the concept of "preschool education" and thirteen categories for the concept of "preschool education program" were reached. While there was no negative perception expression in the metaphors developed by preschool teachers for the concept of "preschool education", the same situation did not arise for the concept of "preschool education program". Reasons have been presented for some metaphors developed for the preschool education program that the preschool education program should be renewed, that it is restrictive and contains unnecessary details.
