TOWARD A PRESCRIPTIVE THEORY FOR TEACHING THE DISADVANTAGED. (TITLE SUPPLIED).
FANTINI, MARIO; WEINSTEIN, GERALD
AN APPROACH TO THE PROBLEM OF INCREASING THE SUPPLY OF IDEAS FOR TEACHING DISADVANTAGED CHILDREN WAS CONSIDERED. A BASIC PROBLEM IN WORKING WITH DISADVANTAGED CHILDREN IS THAT OF OVERCOMING THEIR RESTRICTED, CONTENT-ORIENTED LANGUAGE STYLE. WORKING CLASS CHILDREN USUALLY INTERPRET THINGS AROUND THEM AS SIMPLE, CONCRETE, DISCONNECTED, ISOLATED OBJECTS WITH NO INTER-RELATIONSHIP. IT IS THE RESPONSIBILITY OF THE TEACHER TO GUIDE THESE CHILDREN INTO AN ARTICULATION OR ELABORATION OF THE QUALITIES AND DIMENSIONS OF A PHENOMENON, THEREBY MOVING THEM AWAY FROM THE CONCRETE AND INTO THE REALM OF THE ABSTRACT. A MODEL PROCESS IS PRESENTED WHICH IS INTENDED TO AID TEACHERS WHO ARE SEEKING TO INCREASE ARTICULATION.
