Abstract/Notes: The present longitudinal study measured student adjustment to higher education, comparing 50 participants from alternative schools (Steiner, Montessori, New Schools) with 80 students from the traditional school system. We hypothesized that students from alternative schools adapt better, because of greater perceived social support, academic self-efficacy, and task-oriented coping styles. Measures were taken during the last school year (baseline characteristics), and at the beginning of the first and last terms of the first year in higher education. The quality of adjustment was assessed through academic results, and physical and psychological well-being. The following instruments were used: the State-Trait Anxiety Inventory by Spielberger (1983), the 13-items Depression Inventory by Beck et al. (1961), the Coping Inventory for Stressful Situations by Endler and Parker (1990), and semi-directed interviews. Results show that students from alternative schools adjust better to higher education: they report less anxiety and depression symptoms, and show greater life satisfaction and academic achievement.

Abstract/Notes: By monitoring kindergarten musical activities in-depth interviewing with four kindergarten teachers, this paper researched kindergarten teachers' attitudes toward musical educations, ways of their plan and implementing educations, thoughts about musical educations programed by private institutions and difficulties of educating musical educations to students. Thus, research topics were selected to improve understandings of musical educations, musical education practices' environments in kindergarten field regarding of three questions: First, how were actual educations like by a teacher's point of view?, Second, what were teachers' attitude toward on accepting musical educations programmed by private institutions? Third, what were teachers' difficulties for teaching musical educations? Based on the research result, answering the first question, "how were actual musical educations like by a teacher's point, musical educations were performing as subject of living discussion time and as the one of activities such as "Sing-Along". Answering the second question, what were teachers' attitude toward on accepting muscial educations programmed by private institutions?, the answer was found as the attitude was positive. Answering the third question, what were teachers' difficulties for teaching musical educations?, it was found that kindergarten teachers were struggling with advising musical education concepts due to a lack of confidence on educations and of applied ideas to musical educations. This research concluded that. However, by restraining the musical education, they were willing to teach musical educations to students systematically. Eventually, this research would challenged current kindergarten teachers to be suggested for needs of restraining musical education and systematic musical education. / 본 연구는 실제 유아교육현장에서 이루어지고 있는 음악교육을 통해 유아교사가 음악교육에 대해 어떠한 생각을 갖고 있으며, 교육현장에서 음악교육을 어떻게 계획하고 실행하는지, 유아교육현장에 들어오는 외부의 음악수업에 대한 교사의 생각은 어떠한지, 그리고 유아들에게 음악을 교육할 때 교사의 어려움이 무엇인지를 알아보고자 유치원 음악교육활동의 직접 관찰과 4명교사의 심층면담을 실시하였다. 본 연구에서 유아교육현장에서의 음악교육에 대한 이해와 유아들에게 실시되는 음악교육과 교사에게 필요한 음악적 환경, 교사들의 음악교육실행의 어려움에 대해 알아보기 위하여 다음과 같은 연구문제를 설정하였다. 첫째, 교사를 통해 본 유치원 현장의 음악 교육은 어떠한가? 둘째, 유치원에 들어오는 외부의 음악수업에 대한 교사의 생각은 어떠한가? 셋째, 음악교육을 통해 본 교사의 음악지도의 어려움은 무엇인가? 연구 결과 교사를 통해 본유치원의 음악 교육은 수업 속에 활용되는 음악으로 음악 교육이라기보다는 생활주제를 유아들에게 전달하는 방법으로 사용되고 있거나, ‘노래 부르기’와 같은 활동만으로 음악교육을 활용하고 있었다. 둘째, 교사들은 외부 음악 교육에 대해 긍정적으로 생각을 하였으며, 외부음악교육에 대해 그에 따른 교육상의 문제점에 대해서도 인지하고 있었다. 셋째, 교사를 통해 본 교사의 음악지도의 어려움은 음악적 자신감 결여와 지도방법의 연계방법 부족으로 인하여 음악적 개념지도의 어려움을 보여주고 있었다. 본 연구를 통해 현직교사들에게 음악 교육의 재교육의 필요성과 예비교사들을 위한 ‘유아음악교육전문 교사자격’ 체제를 실시하여 유아교육에서도 유아음악교육 전문성 교사 배출시스템 설계의 필요성을 제언하고자 한다.
