ERIC/EECE Digests Related to the Education and Care of Children from Birth through 12 Years of Age.
ERIC Clearinghouse on Early Childhood Education, Champaign, IL.
The ERIC/EECE Digests in this compilation focus on different aspects of the education and care of children from birth through 12 years of age. The four digests produced in 1989 concern the escalating kindergarten curriculum, involvement of parents in the education of their children, mixed-age groups in early childhood education, and praise in the classroom. The eight digests from 1988 focus on the training and qualifications of child care directors, cooperative learning strategies for children, creativity in young children, cooperative problem solving in the classroom, critical issues in the provision of infant day care, latchkey children and school-age child care, the nature of children's play, and young children's oral language development. The 12 digests produced in 1987 deal with ability grouping in elementary schools, the development of social competence, early childhood classrooms and computers, "hothousing" of young children, trade-offs between program quality and affordability in early childhood programs, readiness for kindergarten, screening for school entry, the shifting kindergarten curriculum, the shy child, training of day care providers, and what young children should be learning. Digests produced before 1987 address the assessment of preschoolers' development, homework policies, full- or half-day kindergarten, and parents and schools. Materials concerning the ERIC System are provided. (RH)
