Fields, Joyce I.
Early Child Development and Care, v107 p115-28 Mar 1995
Investigated claims of effectiveness of using teaching materials embedded in traditional Socratic dialog techniques to ascertain whether, with proper introduction, young children could be emergent philosophers and whether there would be significant changes in academic achievement and reasoning skills. The first part states and discusses significant academic achievement results; the second part analyzes video or audio-taped dialog by the children. (DR)
