An Evaluation of the Effectiveness of a New Type of Preschool Compensatory Program: Environmental Academics.
Dwyer, Robert C.; And Others
A total of 160 five-year-old children from Head Start-eligible families were assigned to two treatments during a 6-month Head Start program. The experimental group received the Environmental Academics Program for one to one and a half hours per school day, and the ongoing Head Start program for the balance of the day. The control group received the ongoing Head Start program for the full day. The experimental group made significant gains over the control group on IQ and achievement measures. (Author/DB)
