FIRST GENERALIZATION FOR EXPERIMENTS TO PROMOTE INTELLECTUAL DEVELOPMENT OF THE CULTURALLY DEPRIVED.
SMILANSKY, M.
ELEVEN GENERALIZATIONS FROM THE OUTCOMES OF STUDIES AND EXPERIMENTS CARRIED OUT BY THE SZOLD INSTITUTE OVER A PERIOD OF 2 YEARS WERE PRESENTED. THE FIRST NEGATED THE PREMISES OF A LIMITED POOL OF ABILITY AND OF THE STABILITY OF IQ. TABLES DEMONSTRATED THE POSSIBILITY OF RAISING THE IQ OF CULTURALLY DEPRIVED CHILDREN BY AN AVERAGE OF ABOUT 20 POINTS DURING THE PRESCHOOL PERIOD AND ABOUT 10 POINTS DURING ADOLESCENCE. THE SECOND STATED THE IMPORTANCE OF INTELLECTUAL PROMOTION AT THE PRESCHOOL AGE. RESULTS SHOWED THAT IT WAS FEASIBLE TO DEVELOP A PROGRAM FOR AGES 3-6 WHICH WOULD LAY PROPER FOUNDATION FOR REALIZING THE OBJECTIVES REGARDING DESIRABLE BEHAVIOR, ABILITIES, AND KNOWLEDGE. THE THIRD WAS AGAINST THE PREMISE OF "IRREVERSIBILITY." THE FOURTH WAS SPECIAL INTEREST IN THE POTENTIALLY GIFTED. THE FIFTH WAS FOR A POLICY OF "PROMOTED EQUALITY" RATHER THAN "FORMAL EQUALITY." THE SIXTH PRESENTED THE POSSIBILITY OF USING STRATEGIC APPROACHES IN THE ABSENCE OF AN INCLUSIVE THEORY. THE SEVENTH WAS THAT PROMOTIONAL ACTIVITY SHOULD PRECEDE EACH STAGE OF MATURATION INSTEAD OF FOLLOWING IT. THE EIGHTH WAS THAT CULTURALLY DEPRIVED CHILDREN REQUIRE AN ADAPTATION OF DIDACTICS. THE NINTH GENERALIZATION DISCUSSED THE ROLES AND RELATIONSHIPS OF THE SCHOOL, THE PARENTS, AND CULTURALLY DEPRIVED CHILDREN. THE TENTH STATED THE NEED TO INTEGRATE THE SCHOOL APPROACH AS COMPARED TO A PSYCHO-GENETIC ONE. THIS OUTLINE WAS PRESENTED AT THE CONFERENCE OF AMERICAN ASSOCIATION FOR THE ADVANCEMENT OF SCIENCE (MONTREAL, DECEMBER 30, 1964).
