Early Childhood Education--An Updated Collection of Dissertation Abstracts of Reports Dealing with English Language Development and Language Arts Curriculum Focusing on the Disadvantaged.
Rubin, Katharine
Three major sections, English language development, language arts curriculum, and historical overviews, compose this bibliography compiled from a review of Dissertation Abstracts International, July 1973-June 1974 and July 1974-June 1975. Its focus is on prekindergarten and primary minority groups and disadvantaged children, and it excludes those studies dealing exclusively with dialects, black dialect, bilingualism, and specific reading programs. Studies in the last four areas which focus on English language development are included. Among the categories listed under the first section are: linguistics, linguistic development at various ages, diagnostic intelligence tests, perceptual development, memory skills, and verbal problem solving. Standard English, English as a second language, language development curriculum, language and reading achievement, writing and spelling, and involvement of other in language growth are among the categories subsumed by the second section. Nine references are included under historical review intended to help to view the present developments in perspective. The conclusion provides a summary of the major points. It is suggested that no one has resolved the problem of developing adequate language abilities in young, disadvantaged, and minority children. (Author/AM)
