Yi Hao

 

ABSTRACT: 

While guided imagery has been widely used in the medical arena as a therapeutic tool and practiced as a teaching technique in elementary and secondary schools, little is known, however, aboutits effectiveness as a learning-teaching strategy in preschool settings. To fill the gap and nurture the multimodal nature of young children’s learning, a comprehensive teachers’ guide titled “Guided Imagery Experiences” (GIE) was developed. The model followed an exploratorystudy to collect qualitative input from agroup of teacher candidates who implemented the model at their host school sites withthe children aged 3-5 years. The inputcollected has contributedto the modificationof the modelin order to maximize itseffectiveness.
