REPORT ON ACTIVITIES, 1964-1966.
FROIMSON, MARCIA; MAX, DAVID
A REPORT ISSUED BY THE ISRAELI NATIONAL INSTITUTE FOR RESEARCH IN THE BEHAVIORAL SCIENCES INDICATES THAT MANY OF THEIR CURRENT PROJECTS ARE INVESTIGATING CULTURALLY DEPRIVED ISRAELI CHILDREN. TOPICS INCLUDE THE GROWTH AND DEVELOPMENT, LEARNING PSYCHOLOGY, AND FAMILY AND KINDERGARTEN BACKGROUNDS OF THESE CHILDREN AS WELL AS THE PREPARATION OF SPECIAL PROGRAMED LEARNING MATERIALS, THE EFFECT OF THE DEVELOPMENT OF REGIONAL ENRICHMENT CENTERS, AND THE STRUCTURING OF SPECIFIC INSTRUCTIONAL MATERIALS IN ARITHMETIC AND GEOGRAPHY FOR DISADVANTAGED CHILDREN. SELECTION OF GIFTED CHILDREN FROM DEPRIVED GROUPS, A STUDY OF THEIR ATTITUDES AND VALUES, EVALUATION AND FOLLOW-UP STUDIES OF THESE STUDENTS AS THEY PROGRESS THROUGH SCHOOL ARE ALSO AREAS OF INTEREST. OTHER EVALUATIVE RESEARCH EFFORTS EXAMINE THE EFFECTS OF AN EXTENDED SCHOOL DAY, ABILITY GROUPING, USE OF ACHIEVEMENT TESTS AND ASSESSMENT INSTRUMENTS, INDEXES FOR SELECTION OF PROGRAMS IN SECONDARY EDUCATION, VOCATIONAL TRAINING, AND RELIGIOUS STANDARDS OF GIRLS. INFORMAL EDUCATION STUDIES ARE INVESTIGATING ASPECTS OF THE ISRAELI YOUTH CORPS PROGRAM, URBAN YOUTH CULTURE, DROPOUTS, CRIMINAL BEHAVIOR IN CHILDREN, JUVENILE DELINQUENCY PREDICTION, AND MENTAL RETARDATION. HALF OF THE DOCUMENT IS A LIST OF PUBLICATIONS ISSUED BY THE INSTITUTE WITH A SUBJECT INDEX AND A VOLUME INDEX OF "MEGAMOT," THE ISRAELI JOURNAL OF EDUCATION, PSYCHOLOGY, AND SOCIOLOGY. (MS)
