The teacher made it clear to the children that good kinder-garteners were quiet and cooperative. One morning, a child brought two large stuffed dolls to school and sat them in her assigned seat. During the first period of large group instruction, the teacher referred to them, saying, ‘Raggedy Ann and Raggedy Andy are such good helpers! They haven't said a thing all morning.’ (Quoted by Apple, 1977, p. 350.)
