Levels of Representation. Part II: Experience with Representation: The Symbol Level and The Sign Level.
Banet, Bernard; And Others
The second part of a working copy in preparation for inclusion into a curriculum manual to aid teachers of preschool children, this paper is devoted to questions, answers and discussions on Experience with Representation: 1. The Symbol Level, and 2. The Sign Level. It is noted that children cannot read or work with concepts they have not yet acquired, and that teaching alphabet, phonetics, and the actual writing of words, is probably not helpful for many at preschool level. It is also thought that preschool teaching might tend to interfere with learning to read or speak. Quiet Area activities are suggested, and that no child be pushed into large groups. The importance of environment is stressed, where speaking, writing and reading language is valued. (For related documents, see PS 006 089-092, and PS 006 094.) (RG)
