The Rationale and Design of an Adaptive Beginning-School Learning Environment: Curriculum Objectives.
Wang, Margaret C.; Siegel, Alexander W.
Presented are the rationale and description of the curriculum objectives developed for the Adaptive Beginning-School Learning Environment Program (ABLE). Included are brief discussions of: an analysis of the historical backgrounds and theoretical assumptions and approaches of extant preschool programs; the rationale for designing the ABLE program and how specifically ABLE differs from the extant preschool programs; the overall program goals; and the design for developing and implementing the program. The rationale and criterion objectives are explained for each of the eight ABLE curricular areas: attentional skills, memory skills, choice-contingency skills, social skills, perceptual skills, numerical and logical skills, communication skills, and independent learning skills.
