Smith, Miriam W.; Dickinson, David K.
Early Childhood Research Quarterly, v9 n3-4 p345-66 1994
Describes the nature of children's oral language experiences in Head Start and other preschool programs serving low-income families and relates those experiences to broader features of the classrooms' programs. Finds that small class size, teacher education levels, and developmentally appropriate curricula are positively associated with high levels of teacher-child interaction and child language development.
