Empirical Bases for a Prekindergarten Curriculum for Disadvantaged Children.
Di Lorenzo, Louis T.; And Others
This project was undertaken to establish a basis for a compensatory curriculum for disadvantaged preschool children by using existing empirical data to identify factors that predict success in reading comprehension and that differentiate the disadvantaged from the nondisadvantaged. The project focused on factors related to success in learning to read, which was equated with reading comprehension. The literature on reading and on the disadvantaged was reviewed, and lists of factors predicting success in reading comprehension and differentiating between disadvantaged and nondisadvantaged children were established. Common factors from the lists of predictors and differentiators in their final rank order were (1) reading letters and numbers, (2) auditory discrimination, (3) figure and pattern copying, (4) auditory word association and analogy, (5) auditory word-picture discrimination, (6) figure and pattern matching, and (7) visual design memory and recall. References and tables are included. (WB)
