An Evaluation of the Khalsa-Diwan Moberly Educational Program (Under the Mango Tree) Vancouver Summer 1971.
Moody, Janet L.
The program provided learning experiences for 112 children aged 3 to 10 (approximately 62 percent of whom were East Indian), some of whom had specific learning difficulties. The experiences were intended to improve language abilities, motor-perceptual skills, socialization, enhance self-concepts, and evoke more positive feelings toward school. Differences in pretest-posttest results for 6 instruments were not significant for the kindergarten group, although many children did show improvement. However, significant differences were found on two tests for the older children. Statistically significant increases in listening comprehension and verbal expression were made. A case study of one East Indian child was also made. (Author/MS)
