The Cognitive Enrichment Network Education Model (COGNET).
Greenberg, Katherine H.; And Others
The Cognitive Enrichment Network Education Model (COGNET) is a program designed to enable children to achieve greater school success by establishing a school-based community of learners. This paper describes COGNET and presents several studies on its effectiveness. The paper begins with a discussion of the model's basic assumptions on child learning and principles for successful educational reform. It then describes the program's background and theoretical framework, namely its emphasis on mediated learning, and its three components: classroom, parent-school partnership, and community-school network. The bulk of the paper describes several studies in two main areas of COGNET's effectiveness--academic achievement and teacher behavior. Details are provided on samples, instruments and procedures, data collection and analysis, and results. Additional studies on student motivation, attention, classroom behavior, and parent involvement are also briefly described. Overall results indicate a positive contribution by COGNET. Contains 24 references. (EV)
