Katz, Lilian G.
The objectives of state-of-the-art reporting activities and approaches that may be utilized in this type of reporting (problem oriented, literature oriented, and discipline oriented) are discussed. The scope and definition are given, and utilizing the discipline approach, the parameters of the Art of Early Childhood Education are presented. These parameters are: characteristics of clients; characteristics of teachers and other assisting adults; program organization; philosophical orientation and historical factors; parent power; administrative factors and sponsorship; length of the program; and physical plant and climate. A matrix generated from the proposed parameters is then provided, with discussion of how it can be used to order information and raise questions. The Program for the State-of the-Art Report at ERIC/ECE is presented as to (a) significant trends in the field: (b) proposed sequence of tasks for state-of-the-art reporting; (c) proposed assignment of tasks (d) audience considerations; and (e) summary and recommendations. Four appendixes present the following: A. Problem Oriented State-of-the-Art Reports Already Available; B. Problem Oriented State-of-the-Art Reports Known to Be in Preparation; C. Proposal for State-of-the-Art Coorinator; and D. Proposal for the Review of Early Childhood Education. (DB)
