Rohwer, William D., Jr.; Ammon, Paul R.
The objectives of this project were to assess and improve learning skills and language abilities in culturally disadvantaged children. The five studies included under this cover were prepared as self-contained reports yet they shared these common objectives. The studies are: (1) Learning Efficiency and Elaboration Training among Four- and Five-Year-Old Children; (2) Elaboration Instructions and Population Effects; (3) Individual Differences in the Learning of Verbally and Pictorially Presented Paired Associates; (4) Effects of Training in Vocabulary vs. Sentence Construction; and (5) Toward a Study of Sentence Imitation as a Technique for Assessing Language Ability. Appendixes give samples of language activities, lessons, and tests. (Author/AJ)
