Elkonin, D. B., Ed.; Davydov, V. V., Ed.
This document is an English-language abstract (approximately 1,500 words) of a book containing the results of many years of experimental research aimed at ascertaining the intellectual ability of students in the junior grades to assimilate theoretical knowledge. Chapter one analyzes the problem of the age peculiarities of children. The author concludes that the cognitive abilities of the children within the age group examined (7-11 years) are directly related to the type and content of the knowledge they assimilate. Chapter II sets forth theoretical and experimental data demonstrating the ability of first graders to assimilate some elements of algebra. The third chapter is devoted to teaching the basic morphological and syntactical notions to second the third graders. An interesting experiment involving first graders' ability to carry out assignments is described in Chapter 4. Does cognitive of theoretical knowledge influence the general level of the pupils' thinking? The results of such an investigation are reported in the fifth chapter. (Author/GDB)
