Crystallizing Conditions, Developmental Advance and Education. First Annual Report.
This research report outlines progress made in the development of a conceptual framework (called "crystallization") which is intended to explain the conditions found to be critical to the child's potential for developmental change. The research completed and proposed on crystallization has centered around four main areas of activity: (1) a field experiment, (2) the development of a diagnostic map-drawing instrument, (3) the preparation of a series of theoretical and conceptual papers, and (4) a proposed study of "precociousness" in children. The overall research goal is an attempt to operationalize, or put into explicit language, the specific conditions under which developmental advances take place, especially advances which would probably not occur without educational assistance. Each activity undertaken in the project was selected for its probable contribution to this objective and is described separately in the report. (CS)
