Learning to See is Seeing to Learn: 2. A Second Year Report of Title 3 Project SEE.
Union Township Board of Education, NJ.
Project SEE was designed as a structured kindergarten and first grade program for the development of visual perception. Short daily lessons were given to an entire kindergarten class simultaneously and were centered around a set of 40 cards containing various lines and shapes. Children were asked to analyze and describe these elements on the cards, locate objects in the room containing the elements, and then replicate the design themselves on a work sheet. The visuals start with a single line element and progress with increasing difficulty to shape/line combinations. In an attempt to show the growth generated by the pilot program, children were pre- and posttested in experimental and control classes with the 'A' (pretest) and 'B' (posttest) editions of the Knobler Perception Development Series. Positive results were found, however indications were that training should continue for more than a year. (CS)
