Michigan State Univ., East Lansing. Head Start Evaluation and Research Center.; Merrill-Palmer Inst., Detroit, MI.
This report contains a discussion of a classification and attention training program for Head Start children. Chapter One presents the theoretical background of the project, which is based on Piaget's model of attention and classification. The methods used in the program are explained in Chapter Two. The next chapter discusses curriculum development and program implementation. Chapter Four provides results. Implication for Education, Chapter Five, concludes this report. Briefly, some of the results of this project include: (1) the cognitively based structured curricula produced greater gains in Head Start children than the less structured programs; (2) differential cognitive changes were demonstrated relative to curricular input; and (3) attention training produced lower gains than the classification program.
