Current Status of Laboratory Studies.
Liberty, Paul; And Others
General information on the studies currently underway by the Southwestern Cooperative Educational Laboratory (SECEL) is presented in this report. Module A is concerned with investigating the relationships between a variety of cultural-psychological factors and language development in grade 1. Testing and home interviews play a major part in this investigation. The purpose of Module B is to investigate the effects of systematic variation of several parameters in the classroom. Module C is concerned with field tryouts of oral language materials for culturally diverse children. Module D is concerned with entry skill development in the area of speech elicitation procedures. Copies of Health, Education, and Welfare Department forms and the instruments used are included for each project in progress. It is noted that some reorganization, shifting, and refocusing are taking place within the Laboratory. The operational structure is moving to a Task Group structure rather than a Task Force structure. The new emphasis is on small task groups. A newly-formed body called the Plans, Review, and Evaluation Panel is responsible for the review, evaluation, and directive function. (PS)
