Working Together for Young Children: Implementing the Extended Elementary Education Program.
Maryland State Dept. of Education, Baltimore. Div. of Compensatory, Urban, and Supplementary Programs.
Five papers summarizing presentations made at the Fourth Annual Early Childhood Education Conference are included in this report. The first presentation, by Evangeline Ward, discusses cooperation, collaboration, change, and advocacy in the context of early childhood education. In the second presentation, Irving Lazar identifies social trends likely to affect early childhood education and discusses research findings supporting early educational intervention. The question of how learning experiences for young children can be organized to provide continuity is discussed by Jenni W. Klein in the third presentation. The fourth presentation, by Lilian Katz, analyzes parenting and teaching in terms of seven role dimensions in order to identify significant differences between the roles of parents and teachers. The fifth and final presentation, by Burton White, argues that the role of the family in the education of a young child, particularly during the first years of life, should be given the highest priority in forming national educational policy. A brief conference overview reflecting controversies emerging in the course of discussions is included at the end of the report. (RH)
