Influences of a Piaget-Oriented Curriculum on Intellectual Functioning of Lower-Class Kindergarten Children.
Raph, Jane; And Others
Intellectual functioning of a lower class kindergarten class exposed to the introduction of a Piaget-oriented curriculum was compared with intellectual functioning of one comparison lower class and one comparison middle class group of children taught in a traditional, activity-centered kindergarten program. Change scores between the beginning and end of a school year were significantly higher for the experimental lower class group on one standardized measure and on several Piagetian tasks. Main features of the Piaget-oriented curriculum and implications of the results are discussed. One-half of the document consists of the bibliography, tables, and summary material. (Author)
