Growth and development of the preadolescent by Arthur Witt Blair( Book )

12 editions published between 1951 and 1966 in English and held by 653 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Blair and Burton examine literature on the preadolescent, gathered from various fields, and analyze, synthesize, and summarize findings on this topic. Their results highlight the importance of social class and developmental tasks in relation to the dramatic levels of maturation that occur in this stage of life. First, the preadolescent is strongly influenced by his peer group and that this peer society is necessary for the child's growth. The child society is an inter- mediate step between adult domination and membership in the adult society. Second, the preadolescent is essentially a realist, who wants to know about reality, so science and sex education are taught more easily at that age level than at adolescence, since the pre-adolescent child is more objective and less emotional than is the adolescent. A third idea is that remediation in study skills or in attitude is progressively more difficult after grade four. Persons who know the field will find the book useful

A comparative study of achievements of Anglo- and Latin-American high school pupils by Leslie R Nelson( Book )

"The purpose of this study is to investigate paired groups of Latin-American and Anglo-American children in one community who have attended the public schools approximately the same number of years, to discover difference, if any, in achievement when comparable opportunities for education have been present. Achievement, in this instance, means all phases of the school program: core subject areas, vocational subjects, physical education and health, and participation in extra-curricular activities. Two source of data are utilized in this study: (1) background information concerning the status and accomplishments of the Latin-american child in Texas schools, taken from professional literature in the field and related studies; (2) primary data, consisting of test results and case studies of two selected groups of pupils in the Stuart High School in south Texas, taken from the school records and teacher-observations studies of the Stuart High School ."--Leaf 3
