SOME IMPLICATIONS OF RESEARCH ON LANGUAGE DEVELOPMENT FOR PRESCHOOL EDUCATION.
CAZDEN, COURTNEY B.
RECENT RESEARCH ON LANGUAGE DEVELOPMENT WAS REVIEWED, AND THE DIFFICULTIES OF TRANSFORMING DEVELOPMENTAL RESEARCH INTO PRESCRIPTIONS FOR EDUCATION WERE DISCUSSED. RESEARCH FINDINGS AND RECOMMENDATIONS FOR PRESCHOOL TEACHING WERE MADE UNDER THE FOLLOWING HEADINGS--(1) THE ACQUISITION OF GRAMMAR, STRUCTURE OF LANGUAGE, (2) THE ACQUISITION OF VOCABULARY, (3) THE ACQUISITION OF MULTIPLE FUNCTIONS OF LANGUAGE, (4) THE ACQUISITION OF A STANDARD DIALECT, (5) THE RELATION OF LANGUAGE TO NONVERBAL BEHAVIOR, (6) BEGINNING READING, AND (7) ELEMENTARY EDUCATION. THE AUTHOR SUGGESTS THAT THE PRESCHOOL CHILD, ESPECIALLY THE DISADVANTAGED CHILD, MAY BE HELPED MOST IN LANGUAGE DEVELOPMENT BY ENLARGING HIS LINGUISTIC REPERTOIRE RATHER THAN BY TRYING TO CORRECT HIS NONSTANDARD FORM. THE NEED FOR ELEMENTARY SCHOOL PROGRAMS TO PROVIDE REINFORCEMENT FOR THE INNOVATIONS OF PRESCHOOL PROGRAMS WAS EMPHASIZED. THIS PAPER WAS PREPARED FOR THE SOCIAL SCIENCE RESEARCH COUNCIL CONFERENCE ON PRESCHOOL EDUCATION, CHICAGO, FEBRUARY 7-9, 1966. (AL)
