LANGUAGE RESEARCH STUDY--PROJECT HEAD START. DEVELOPMENT OF METHODOLOGY FOR OBTAINING AND ANALYZING SPONTANEOUS VERBALIZATIONS USED BY PRE-KINDERGARTEN CHILDREN IN SELECTED HEAD START PROGRAMS--A PILOT STUDY.
RAPH, JANE BEASLEY
THIS STUDY WAS DESIGNED TO DEVELOP METHODOLOGICAL APPROACHES FOR OBTAINING AND ANALYZING CONTINUOUS EXPRESSIVE LANGUAGE SAMPLES USED BY PRE-KINDERGARTEN CHILDREN WHEN THEY COMMUNICATE WITH EACH OTHER. IT ALSO WAS TO CONSIDER MEANS FOR ANALYZING THESE SAMPLES THAT WOULD YIELD CERTAIN QUALITATIVE AND QUANTITATIVE METHODS. FOUR INVESTIGATORS WERE ASSIGNED TO A DIFFERENT HEAD START CLASSROOM TO GENERALLY ENCOURAGE THE CHILDREN TO TALK AND KEPT CONTINUOUS, DETAILED, NARRATIVE DESCRIPTIONS OF FUNCTIONAL LANGUAGE USED BY THE CHILDREN. DURING THE LAST HALF OF THE PROGRAM, CHILDREN'S LANGUAGE RESPONSE TO SPECIFIC STIMULUS SITUATIONS WERE TAPE RECORDED, WITH THE ATTEMPT TO DETERMINE A REPRESENTATIVE RANGE FROM MOST TO LEAST VERBAL CHILDREN.
