To Change a Child: A Report on the Institute for Developmental Studies.
Powledge, Fred
The book reports an experimental, preschool educational intervention program undertaken by the Institute for Developmental Studies, affiliated with the New York University School of Education, which has innovatively studied early childhood education. Discussed are the effects of being disadvantaged upon a child's education, an evaluation of the traditional approaches to educational methods and goals, the theory and practice of intervention, the problems of training teachers for special educational techniques, and a preliminary evaluation of the intervention programs. The activities of a single prekindergarten class of 17 Negro children over 4 years of age, and two teachers during one day in the winter of 1966-1967, are detailed. (EM)
