Child Study-Kindergarten, 1968-69: An Information Report.
Valotto, Evelyn; And Others
This document is a progress report on effecting educational change in a kindergarten program and its interim research findings. A general description of the program and its background are given, followed by an explanation of the diagnostic-prescriptive approach taken in the program. This explanation includes descriptions of the rationale for instruction, the role of the kindergarten teacher, staff development, and instructional materials. The report gives the strategy design for evaluating the program, which includes extensive observations made in the classroom. Certain obstacles were encountered in carrying out this evaluative design; however, and the revised objectives of the project are stated. The list of recommendations emphasizes expanded use of the diagnostic-prescriptive approach through curricular and staff development, the involvement of the Department of Curriculum and Instruction, and commitment of time, personnel, and funds toward the use of a diagnostic-prescriptive approach in instruction. The final recommendation is for the school system to establish pilot classrooms to study issues related to kindergarten education. (MH)
