Iterative Research in Curriculum Development: A Preschool Language Module. A Section of the Final Report for 1969-70.
Adkins, Dorothy C.; And Others
The child in a bilingual or bidialectal situation must increase his skills so that he may function successfully in a wider variety of situations and know how and when to use both language codes. The curriculum described here, used in Head Start classes, is a carefully programmed, very detailed presentation of syntactic patterns that appear with high frequency in the standard dialects of American English. Details of the classroom techniques are provided in this report as are the results observed from tests administered to young children under the new curriculum and to those under other nursery school programs. The various tests and their particular results are discussed. A list of references is given. For additional information; see ED 048 924. (VM)
