Intellectual Skill Learning in the Home Environment. Interim Research Report.
Henderson, Ronald W.
The purpose of this investigation was to develop and test an experimental strategy for the modification of socialization practices, which were hypothesized to affect the development of intellectual skills in young children. Experimental and control groups for this experiment were randomly selected from the population of first grade students in a public school. Pre- and post-testing for each group included three conditions: baseline, imitation, and generalization. The mothers attended five training sessions in small groups of five or fewer. It is concluded that there may be little point in training parents to exercise skills which social conditions preclude them from using. (DB)
