Thinking in elementary school children by Hilda Taba( Book )

9 editions published between 1964 and 1975 in English and held by 59 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The development of thought processes under optimum training conditions was studied. Optimum was defined to include (1) a curriculum for the development of thought, (2) teaching strategies focused directly on mastery of necessary cognitive skills, and (3) a sufficient time span to permit a developmental training sequence. Children from 20 elementary school classes (grades 2 through 6) participated. Participating teachers received special training to facilitate learning of cognitive skills (categorization, interpretation, and application of principles). Methodological tools and instruments were developed and administered with the social studies inference test. Correlations between criterion test scores, intelligence, chronological age, mental age, and reading achievement were reported. Quality of the teaching strategy was the most significant single factor influencing cognitive performance. (Wn)
A study of the effects of community and institutional school classes for trainable mentally retarded children by San Francisco State College( Book )

4 editions published in 1961 in English and held by 53 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The major hypothesis of this project was that trainable mentally retarded children attending school programs, whether living at home or in an institution, would show greater increments of social competence over a period of time than comparable children not attending such programs. It was also suggested that parents of retardates who attend public school classes in their communities would show greater increments of adaptability than those whose children do not attend such classes. From about 180 children, 4 groups were formed--(1) community control, (2) community experimental, (3) institutional control, and (4) institutional experimental. The experimental groups attended public school classes for trainable children while the control groups did not. Ratings on the criterion measures were obtained at the initiation and conclusion of the 2-year experimental period. Parents of the community groups were visited and interviewed four times during the project period. Analysis of findings showed significant increases in the social competency development for the community groups and comparable decreases for the same in the institutional groups. Developmental differences between the school and nonschool children, whether living at home or not, were insignificant. It was therefore concluded that school programs for trainable mental retardates were inadequate in fostering social competency development. Also, the environment of a home appeared to be much more stimulating for this social development than the institutional environment. Parental adaptability appeared not to benefit when children attended school, possibly because of lack of parent-teacher contacts as well as inadequacy of the few contacts that occurred. (Jh)
A study of the relative effectiveness of different approaches of speech training for mentally retarded children by San Francisco State College( Book )

5 editions published in 1960 in English and held by 43 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Speech improvement techniques for mental retardates were examined using communication-centered speech therapy to enhance articulation and general oral production and to improve such relationship attributes as communicative initiative and ease in social situations. A battery of test devices was developed, including the san francisco inventory of communicative effectiveness (sfice) which uses a communicative attributes rating scale and a verbal output scale, an articulation profile, and a sound discrimination test. Two types of speech training were used in the study--conventional therapy and communication-centered therapy. Tests were administered to experimental subjects prior to and after therapy and to control subjects who received no therapy. Clinical experience gained during the program indicated the effectiveness of communication-centered speech therapy, using approaches duplicating real-life experiences rather than a drill-type instructional approach. However, since this study was not designed to specify and test individual principles and techniques of communication-centered speech therapy, further study of this approach is recommended in which its specific features will be more thoroughly appraised.
