A Voluntary Prekindergarten Language Development and Reading Program for the Entire Four-Year-Old Population of a City (An Investigation of Machine-Taught Reading) Final Report

Available from: ERIC

See More

Abstract/Notes: Four studies conducted by the Mount Vernon Public Schools over a period of five semesters involved machine-teaching reading to 240 disadvantaged prekindergarten children from the children's center and the child development center to prepare them for more successful kindergarten learning through academically-oriented readiness activities in an American Montessori classroom setting. The children's center subjects attended 1-hour sessions while the child development center subjects attended 3-hour sessions. Experimental groups from both centers used the Edison-Responsive-environment talking typewriter and the story-telling-automatic reading tutor machines with programs which utilized linguistic vowel-sounds methods. The control groups used the same machines but did not receive program training. Results showed superior performance by the program subjects, but there were no significant differences in the performance of program subjects using different teaching machines. The 1-hour session proved to be as effective as the 3-hour session. These results imply that greater consideration should be given to more economical program systems and that class time could be reduced by half without loss in learning.

Abstract/Notes: This quasi-experimental research study examined the performance of two groups of five year old children on the Developmental Indicators for the Assessment of Learning-Revised (DIAL-R) (1990) in relationship to their method of schooling. The purpose of the study was to compare mean scores received by the Montessori group (N=10) and the Traditional group (N=10) on Motor Area skills, Concept Area skills, and Language Area skills of the DIAL-R (1990) using t tests for independent samples. Scores received on each test item were also analyzed statistically to determine the specific strengths and weaknesses of each subject group. The findings show that there was no significant difference between the two subject groups in the Motor Area skills as assessed by the DIAL-R (1990). There was a significant difference between the two subject groups in the Concept Area skills which favored the Montessori subjects. The Montessori group performed better than did the Traditional group in the Language Area skills of the DIAL-R (1990), but the difference was not statistically significant. Implications of these findings for Early Childhood educators are discussed, in view of the fact that this sample was quite small. The findings provide support for both the Montessori and Traditional programs for young children found within the Dallas Public Schools in student performance on the DIAL-R (1990). Recommendations for further studies are also given.

Abstract/Notes: Maria Montessori e Ludwig Wittgenstein hanno apportato un contributo significativo allo sviluppo del concetto di linguaggio in ambito educativo. Muovendo dalla sfera del linguaggio parlato e passando poi a quella del linguaggio scritto, l’articolo che segue ha come proposito quello di far emergere le affinità concettuali rintracciate all’interno delle opere dei due autori. Tale parallelismo ha origine comune nella centralità affidata al rapporto interdipendente tra pensiero e linguaggio. L’articolo qui proposto vuole soprattutto amplificare il messaggio filosofico ed etico che accompagna questo pensiero comune ad entrambi gli autori e che può essere così riassunto: un ambiente educativo all’interno del quale venga promossa una visione filosofica ed etica del linguaggio permette al bambino di migliorare la qualità della propria vita intima e sociale. / Maria Montessori y Ludwig Wittgenstein han aportado una contribución significativa en el desarrollo del concepto de lenguaje en el ámbito educativo. Empezando por la esfera del lenguaje hablado y atravesando la de la escritura, este artículo se propone resaltar las afinidades conceptuales delineadas entre las obras de los dos autores. Este paralelismo encuentra orígenes comunes en la centralidad conferida al vínculo entre pensamiento y lenguaje. El propósito de este artículo es el de destacar el mensaje filosófico y ético que acompaña el pensamiento de los dos autores y que puede ser así resumido: un entorno educativo dentro del cual sea promovida una visión filosófica y ética del lenguaje, permite al niño mejorar la calidad de su propia vida interior y social. / Maria Montessori and Ludwig Wittgenstein contributed to formulate notions of language in the field of education. Starting from spoken language and moving to the written word, this article aims to unfold the conceptual resemblances in both authors. This parallelism finds common origins in the centrality conferred on the relationship between thought and language. The purpose of this article is to highlight the philosophical and ethical message that accompanies the thoughts of the two authors and that can be summarized that way: an educational environment within which a philosophical and ethical vision of language is promoted allows the child to improve the quality of their own individual and social life.
