Learning and Achievement. Kaleidoscope.
Holt, John; And Others
KaleidoSCOPE, under Title III, Elementary and Secondary Education Act, disseminates articles dealing with current topics and trends in education of particular interest to educators. This edition is the result of a series of programs dealing with learning and the underachiever. Dealing with the definition of the underachiever was John Holt, speaking on "How Children Fail." A paper, entitled "The Nature of Cognitive Growth," discusses the Bruner and Piaget theories of development as they are related to learning and modern education, with emphasis on the underachiever in Math. Papers were delivered on "Project Bridge" (Building Resources of Instruction for Disadvantaged Groups in Education), and "Types of Research Being Carried on in the Field of Low Achiever in Mathematics."
