A PROGRAM TO DEMONSTRATE WAYS OF USING A YEAR OF KINDERGARTEN TO PROMOTE COGNITIVE ABILITIES, IMPART BASIC INFORMATION AND MODIFY ATTITUDES WHICH ARE ESSENTIAL FOR SCHOLASTIC SUCCESS OF CULTURALLY DEPRIVED CHILDREN IN THEIR FIRST TWO YEARS OF SCHOOL....
SMILANSKI, S.
BECAUSE OF THE FAR-REACHING EFFECTS OF STUDENT FAILURE AMONG CULTURALLY DISADVANTAGED STUDENTS, A STUDY IS BEING CONDUCTED IN ISRAEL TO DETERMINE THE VALUE OF PRESCHOOL TRAINING, PRINCIPALLY IN KINDERGARTEN, IN PROMOTING NECESSARY SKILLS AND ABILITIES FOR SUCCESS IN SCHOOL. THROUGH A SERIES OF SPECIALLY DESIGNED TESTS, THE DEFICIENCIES OF THE STUDENTS WERE FOUND, METHODS FOR DEALING WITH THESE DEFICIENCIES WERE INTEGRATED INTO A PROGRAM TO ESTABLISH A GIVE-AND-TAKE IN COMMUNICATION WITH EACH CHILD. THE PROGRAM HAS TO THIS TIME SHOWN THAT 1 YEAR OF KINDERGARTEN RAISED THE IQ OF THE CULTURALLY DISADVANTAGED STUDENTS TO THAT OF THEIR PEERS. ACHIEVEMENT TESTING IS NOT COMPLETED. SOCIAL AND EMOTIONAL ADJUSTMENTS IN THE KINDERGARTEN SITUATION WERE NOT FOUND TO HAVE PROGRESSED TO THE EXTENT EXPECTED.
