Teaching Disadvantaged Children in the Infant School.
Cox, T., Ed.; Waite, C. A., Ed.
This collection of articles on compensatory preschool education is chiefly the result of a conference at the University College of Swansea, Wales, during the Easter vacation of 1969. Articles include the following: (1) "Compensatory education and the infant school"; (2) "Compensatory programmes and early childhood education in the U.S.A."; (3) "The development and importance of language skills of disadvantaged children"; (4) "New approaches and published materials for teaching disadvantaged readers"; (5) "The development of mathematical skills in infant school children"; (6) "Drama as an aid to fuller experience--with notes on practical work of a study group"; (7) "Report by a study group considering aspects of children's reading material"; and, (8) "Some notes on the use of audio-aids with disadvantaged children." The articles predominantly concern education of disadvantaged children in British infant schools, with the exception of one relating to the United States (item number 2). Two contributions--items (6) and (7)--have a wider reference than merely to preschool education. (JW)
