Motivational and Social Components in Compensatory Education Programs: Suggested Principles, Practices, and Research Designs.
Development of cognitive competence and constructive patterns of motivation and behavior in the disadvantaged child are the topics of this paper. Five subjects are explored: (1) the potency of models, (2) social reinforcement, (3) intensive relationships, (4) group forces, and (5) superordinate goals. The first two subjects cover basic processes which influence the behavior and development of the child, while the last three subjects examine the social context in which these processes can be effectively evoked. The author proposes concrete examples of innovative and unconventionally research that could be attempted in all environments and which would substantially advance progress in education of the disadvantaged.
