A COMPARISON OF THE ORAL LANGUAGE DEVELOPMENT OF HEAD START PUPILS WITH NON-HEAD START PUPILS.
DANIEL, ARTIE A.; GILES, DOUGLAS E.
ORAL LANGUAGE DEVELOPMENT OF TWO GROUPS OF DISADVANTAGED FIRST-GRADE CHILDREN WAS COMPARED. ONE GROUP OF 52 SUBJECTS PARTICIPATED IN A PROJECT HEAD START SUMMER PROGRAM, AND THE OTHER GROUP OF 52 SUBJECTS DID NOT. TO DETERMINE IF CHILDREN OF LIMITED OPPORTUNITY, PARTICIPATING IN PROGRAMS DESIGNED TO BROADEN EXPERIENCES, EXHIBIT SUPERIOR LANGUAGE DEVELOPMENT SEVERAL MONTHS AFTER SUCH PARTICIPATION, THE INVESTIGATOR DEVELOPED AND ADMINISTERED A MEASUREMENT OF VARIOUS ASPECTS OF ORAL LANGUAGE. FINDINGS SHOWED THAT (1) PROJECT HEAD START PARTICIPANTS DISPLAYED GREATER ORAL LANGUAGE DEVELOPMENT THAN NON-HEAD START PARTICIPANTS FOR BOTH BOYS AND GIRLS, AND (2) PROJECT HEAD START ACTIVITIES WERE MORE EFFECTIVE IN ENCOURAGING THE ORAL LANGUAGE DEVELOPMENT OF LOW-INTELLIGENCE PUPILS THAN HIGH-INTELLIGENCE PUPILS. BASED ON THESE FINDINGS, RECOMMENDATIONS WERE MADE FOR TYPES OF MATERIALS AND ACTIVITIES TO BE INCLUDED IN HEAD START CURRICULUMS, AND FOR FUTURE RESEARCH IN THIS AREA. (GD)
