Summary

It is asserted that under the influence of curriculum developers, R&D disseminators, and general cultural influences, teachers of young children perceive that part of their role is to keep their children excited (high level of responsiveness) or "turned on." This perception leads to (1) child dependence on and expectation of adult-induced excitement; (2) absence of opportunity for children to learn to engage in sustained work; and (3) teacher reliance on superficial tricks and gimmicks. Similarly, teachers are victims of disseminator induced excitement. It is asserted that excitement cannot last and is followed by disconsolation and mistrust of educational R&D disseminators.
