Learning disabilities found in association with French immersion programming by R. L Trites( Book )

13 editions published between 1976 and 1979 in English and held by 83 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Thirty-two children who experienced difficulty in primary French immersion were compared to seven other groups of children matched for age and sex on a wide variety of language, perceptual, academic achievement, memory, motor, sensory and other tests to determine if there was anything unique in the profile of this group. The comparison groups included three groups in which language is a factor: English-speaking children in French language schools, French-speaking children in French language schools and children from other ethnic and language backgrounds in English language schools. The four "non-language" groups included standard diagnostic groups: hyperactive, minimal brain dysfunction, social and emotional maladjustment and primary reading disability. A group of eight children who were doing well in French immersion was included. To monitor their progress on academic achievement and language tests over time, follow-up testing was obtained on twenty-four children who had difficulty in primary French immersion and seven children who were doing well in French immersion. The findings support the conclusion that some children of above average potential and normal abilities for school progress in their native language experience difficulty or fail in a primary immersion program in a second language as a result of a mild specific maturational lag.

Bilingual education in Ontario : a decade of research by Merrill Swain( Book )

8 editions published between 1981 and 1983 in English and held by 76 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This report constitutes a synthesis of 10 years of research which was conducted to assist Ontario boards of education in implementing and evaluating French immersion programs in their jurisdictions. The immersion programs evaluated include three major alternatives: (1) the early total French immersion programs of the Carleton, Ottawa, and Toronto Boards of Education; (2) the early partial French immersion program of the Elgin County Board of Education; and (3) the late partial French immersion program of the Peel County Board of Education. Reference is also made to evaluations of similar immersion programs evaluated by other researchers in Ontario and throughout Canada. The report includes a description of the programs and information on the characteristics of some other bilingual education programs found in Ontario. In addition, the following information is provided: (1) discussion of the specific research questions and the research design; (2) presentation of the evaluation findings concerning the linguistic effects; (3) presentation of the findings on the academic effects; and (4) discussion of some social and psychological dimensions of French immersion programs. A bibliography is included on immersion education in Canada and the United States. (Author/AMH)

Computers, children, and classrooms : a multisite evaluation of the creative use of microcomputers by elementary school children : final report by Hilda W Carmichael( Book )

6 editions published in 1985 in English and held by 68 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This study examined the creative uses of computers in elementary schools and their impact on student's confidence and self-esteem, student-student interaction, student-teacher interaction, male and female students, classroom management, the role of the teacher, special education, teacher training, teachers not involved in the study, and curricular areas such as computer literacy, learning Logo as a programming language, problem-solving and problem-creation, mathematics, oral communication, reading and writing, the arts, and values and the individual and society. Findings are based on intensive examinations of real classrooms over a 2-year period. A total of 433 students in 18 classrooms that involved 13 different teachers were studied; of these, 5 teachers and 40 students were involved in the study for 2 years. Classrooms had 1 to 5 computers over the entire school year, or students had access to a computer laboratory. Logo and word processing were studied extensively; the use of a graphics tablet and Musicland were explored for short periods. Findings indicate that the creative use of computers fosters the development of independent and original thinking and that an environment that encourages exploration leads to extensive social interaction among students; in addition, students become more willing to express, refine, or revise their ideas. A significantly greater proportion of students experienced an increase in their confidence and self-esteem if their teacher was able to give them autonomy over their learning. The impact on students' attention span and cognitive development in the special education classes was also significant. Appendices and selected references are provided. (Author/JB)

Sex roles : biological and cultural interactions as found in social science research and Ontario educational media by L Fischer( Book )

10 editions published between 1976 and 1978 in English and held by 62 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The purpose of this study was to answer the following questions: (1) In what areas are sex differences supported by research? (2) To what extent are these sex differences caused by biological differences, by differences in socialization, or by differing opportunities? (3) In what way are educators reinforcing sex role stereotypes? In order to determine the influence of educators in the sex role socialization process, the social science literature on the topic was reviewed, and original research was done on the content of textbooks in Ontario. The other two questions were answered through reviews of recent literature. This study concludes that while some sex differences were found in cognitive functioning, aptitudes, and preferences, many of these were not statistically supported until ages 10, 11, and some not until early adolescence. This suggests that schools may be influencing this development. The evidence of stereotyping done by teachers is slight and contradictory; however, evidence does exist for stereotyped content in books and other educational media. In sum, there are many widely held beliefs about sex differences which are not consistently supported by evidence. Annotated bibliographies are included. (Author/JK)
Effects of class size in the junior grades : a study by E. N Wright( Book )

6 editions published in 1977 in English and held by 45 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This study investigated the differences between different sized classes in grades four and five of Toronto schools. Teachers and students from 11 schools were assigned to 34 classes of either 16, 23, 30, or 37 students (class size could vary by 2). All students were in grade four during the study's first year and in grade five during the second year. Questionnaires and attitude scales were used to measure teachers' expectations and attitudes, students opinions and attitudes toward their classes, and parents' opinions. In addition, student achievement in the areas of reading comprehension, vocabulary, mathematics problem-solving, mathematics concepts, art, and composition was measured, and students' academic self-concepts were assessed. Results of the study showed that varying class size produced few changes in classroom functioning, and most differences between class sizes were relatively small. Students were addressed as individuals significantly more frequently as class size was reduced below 30. Other differences included increased mathematics concepts scores in classes of 16, increased verbal participation in classes of 16 or 23, more noise in classes of 30 or 37, increased scores on "indicators of quality" in classes of 16 or 23, more frequent reading instruction in classes of 16, and increased complaints about lack of art instruction in classes of 37.
