Perspectives in the Education of Disadvantaged Children; A Multidisciplinary Approach.
Cowles, Milly, Ed.
A collection of original papers presents an interdisciplinary approach to the education of disadvantaged children. The volume, prepared especially for preservice and inservice teachers, is divided into three sections--poverty and its effects, the children of poverty, and educational implications. The first two parts deal with such areas as anthropology, medicine, social work, sociology, and psychology. Part 3 is devoted to guidance practices, preschool programs, curriculum for early childhood and elementary levels, educational change, and research needs. (NH)
