An Investigation of the Efficacy of Piaget Curricular Elements Integrated into a Traditional Head Start Program.
Diamond, Hannah
The effects of Piagetian curricular elements added to a traditional Head Start program were investigated to determine if such elements helped to develop classification, seriation, and conservation. Two Head Start classes of 23 and of 19 children were used in the study. Student skills were assessed through a pretest and posttest using classical Piagetian procedures. Nine separate activities addressing the seriation, classification, and conservation concepts were used in the experimental class during the school year. Results showed that seriation skills, classification skills, and conservation of discontinuous quantity were developed in more Head Start children in the experimental class than in the traditional class; conservation of continuous quantity did not develop in more students in the experimental group.
