Abstract/Notes: We report on a study that was conducted in an urban city center, Bangalore, India. The participants included 1,052 students from Grades 1, 3 and 5, who came from different home language backgrounds and attended schools where the language of instruction was English. The students’ L2 English reading skills were measured using DIBELS and Easy CBM. The purpose of this study was to examine relations between basic skills, fluency, and comprehension. Using confirmatory factor analysis (CFA), for students in Grade 1, we found reading skills mapped on to three latent factors: “letter sounds”, “letter names” and “fluency and comprehension”. For students in Grade 3, we found reading skills mapped on to two latent factors: “word and passage level fluency and comprehension” and “sentence and retell level fluency and comprehension”. For students in Grade 5, we found reading skills mapped on to two latent factors: “fluency” and “comprehension”. Implications for reading assessment and instruction practices within the Indian context will be discussed.

Abstract/Notes: The objective of this study is to discuss some methods that can be helpful for the development of Montessori as well as the Kindergarten Approach to Education. Our research work is based on an unstructured questionnaire and observation method. To imply adequate qualitative and quantitative data, we searched the goals and objectives of Kindergarten and Montessori education policy from local concerned institutions of West Bengal in India. Our field study was conducted on some villages of Midnapore and South 24 Parganas District of Bengal. Early childhood is a stage that requires an overall holistic development model. These two approaches deal with that, but there are some methods related to language and communication that can easily develop the quality of the approaches above. It is shown with projected lesson plans and timetable management. This study explores and discusses such methods and points out how these methods can bring changes to those approaches. This paper also inputs the Indian state education policy about it.

Abstract/Notes: This chapter traces the historical trajectory of the discipline of education in India with a special focus on one of the foundations of education, i.e., psychology. It maps the emergence and shifts in the imagination, discourses, and practices of psychology as a foundation to understand how the contours of education, as a discipline, was being fashioned at various historical junctures in India in interactions with and influence on global discourses. The chapter uses various annual, quinquennial, commission, and committee report, syllabi and examination papers, research trends to trace and reconstruct the beginnings, continuities, and disjuncture at various points and across several sites. It draws attention to the interlinkages between the child study movement and education both globally and in India. It critically examines the deployment of categories/frameworks of deficit, ‘deprivation’ and developmentalism in the syllabus and researches to construct the ‘child’, to coalesce anxiety around the adjustment of the adolescent, and blame/mobilise the family in the projects to achieve and contribute to ‘social control’ and ‘discipline’. The chapter argues that psychology, with its paraphernalia of concepts and tools to measure and classify the children has brought more harm to education than contribute to removing the conditions that produce and reproduce ‘deficits’.
