ORTHOGRAPHIC SYMBOLS AND THE PRESCHOOL CHILD--A NEW APPROACH.
MOORE, OMAR K.
EXPERIMENTAL TECHNIQUES ARE PRESENTED WHICH SHOW THAT IT IS POSSIBLE FOR PRESCHOOL CHILDREN TO LEARN, IN A RELATIVELY SHORT TIME, WHAT ORDINARILY ARE CONSIDERED TO BE ADVANCED SKILLS. PRESCHOOL CHILDREN OF 2 AND 3 YEARS OF AGE CAN LEARN TO TYPE ON AN ELECTRIC TYPEWRITER, TO PRINT, TO READ, AND TO TAKE DICTATION. THE CAPACITY TO LEARN THESE SKILLS AT AN EARLY AGE IS NOT UNIQUE TO GIFTED CHILDREN. SOME OF THE THEORETICAL TOPICS ON WHICH WORK IS BEING DONE, ESPECIALLY THOSE THAT PERTAIN DIRECTLY TO THE EXPERIMENTAL TECHNIQUES, INCLUDE--DEONTIC LOGIC, WHICH IS THE FORMAL ANALYSIS OF NORMATIVE RELATIONS, THE LOGIC OF ENTAILMENT, WHICH IS THE FORMAL ANALYSIS OF STRONG IMPLICATION AND RELEVANCE, THE FORMAL ANALYSIS OF INTERACTIONAL RELATIONS, THE FORMAL ANALYSIS OF THE STRUCTURE OF PROBLEMS, AND THE FORMAL ANALYSIS OF THE STRUCTURE OF ENVIRONMENTS. THE FOUR STAGES WHICH HAVE BEEN DEVELOPED FOR PERMITTING CHILDREN TO LEARN ORTHOGRAPHIC SYMBOLS ARE--THE BASIC READING AND WRITING STAGE WHICH IS COMPRISED OF LEARNING STEPS IN TYPING, PRINTING, AND READING, THE DICTATION STAGE, THE COMPOSITION STAGE, AND THE DIALOGUE STAGE. THE TEACHER'S ROLE IS TO RESPOND IMMEDIATELY TO THE CHILD'S RESPONSES. THE TIME LIMIT IS ONE HOUR PER SESSION PER DAY. CHILDREN LEARN QUICKLY WITHIN THE CONTEXT OF A RESPONSIVE ENVIRONMENT. SOME CHILDREN ARE ANNOYED AT HAVING TO STOP AT THE TIME LIMIT, OTHERS CAN LEARN FOR ONLY 30 MINUTES OF THE SESSION. A BIBLIOGRAPHY IS INCLUDED. THIS PAPER WAS TO BE PUBLISHED IN THE PROCEEDINGS OF THE THIRD MINNESOTA CONFERENCE ON GIFTED CHILDREN, OCTOBER 1960.
