This report is a collection of five papers emphasizing the significance of the young child's motor development.

Effect of a special program in literature on the vocabulary and reading achievement of second grade children in special service schools by Dorothy H Cohen( )

9 editions published between 1966 and 1967 in English and held by 11 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A special program of literature and accompanying activities was introduced into the curriculum of disadvantaged second-grade children to cause significant measurable improvement in the vocabulary and reading achievement of these children. Seven special-service elementary schools in new york city provided the research setting. At the beginning of the research, 580 second-grade children were administered the free association vocabulary test and the metropolitan reading achievement test, upper primary, grade 2. experimental and control classes were set up on a random basis. For the experimental classes, teachers were asked to read a story every day of the school year from specially selected books. These stories were introduced in an order of increasing difficulty and were each accompanied by followup activities designed to enhance comprehension. Stories read to the control classes were introduced only as an occasional treat and followed no specified pattern. Post-tests administered at the end of the academic year yielded suitable data from 285 pupils. Analyses of covariance led to the conclusion that oral language correlates with reading, and both can be significantly improved by regular exposure to stories read aloud. One of the implications of the research was that teachers, especially teachers of the disadvantaged, must be familiar with children's literature suitable to the age and stage of development of the children they are teaching.

A look at children in China by Dorothy H Cohen( Book )

3 editions published in 1976 in English and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This paper explores educational philosophy and its effect on children's development in the People's Republic of China. The Chinese educational system incorporates heterogeneous classrooms and opportunities to "serve the people" through meaningful, productive work in order to foster a perception of group membership among students. The students in China were observed to be healthy, happy, confident, outgoing, and considerate. Children in China under 7 years of age are usually cared for by grandparents or in nurseries, and the warmth and affection of caregivers are valued. After age 7, children are included in a community support system which incorporates units of neighbors to provide direct care for children when necessary. Children are therfore socialized by the school, family, and the community. The Chinese system of all-inclusive health care, the value placed on a stimulating environment in both the school and the home, the nonpunitive attitude maintained by teachers, and the consistency found between parent and teacher attitudes are other facets of the culture which optimize child development in China.

Address at Combined Meeting of N. Y. C. Early Childhood Council and the Metropolitan Association for Childhood Education on "Language Arts Materials in Early Childhood" (Teachers College, Columbia University, April 6, 1968): by Dorothy H Cohen( Book )

1 edition published in 1968 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

While the increased availability of specific materials designed for language arts curriculums offers teachers convenience, it is important to continue to evaluate materials according to their usefulness as tools to aid the teaching-learning process. Language arts materials can be classified according to function: (1) those that encourage imitating the English language, (2) those that associate symbols with meaning, (3) those that aid in the recognition of symbols and symbol systems, (4) those that support the use of symbols for communication, (5) those that aid the development of physiological function, (6) those designed strictly for reading, and (7) those that can be called literature. New rationale should be used in the selection of children's literature, rationale that would weigh heavily the possibility for children to enjoy and identify with the story. Approaches to language arts curriculum and materials must consider (1) the way all children learn language, and (2) the pattern of anticipatory behavior and the relation of antecedent practice to later goals. The younger the child, the more language must play a supportive role to sensory learning. (Mh)

The Technological Distortion of the Child's World: The Loss ofInteraction by Dorothy H Cohen( Book )

1 edition published in 1975 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

This paper discusses the effects of a technological society on the growth and development of children. There is a feeling among preschool and elementary teachers that many children today are excitable, unable to commit themselves to an activity, unable to concentrate well, and speak glibly without understanding. These teachers speculate that imagination may be gradually decreasing among today's children. Technology, which stresses efficiency and speed, results in a growing separation between individual effort and the product of that effort. People have come to measure themselves by the qualities prized in technology (speed, precision, strength, etc.) instead of human qualities (reflection, imagination, feeling, etc.). In a physical sense, children are surrounded by an environment that stresses bigness, the non-intimate, the non-personal, and the distant. Children's television presents images of images, mechanical and sterile versions of flesh and blood reality. Many children seem no longer able to play well, and play is crucial to the child's developing into a fully functioning adult. Although technology has the potential to expand and enrich the scope of human experience, it is urgent now that our focus be on countering its power to deplete and perhaps destroy significant aspects of human functioning.
