Summary

This work was to check on the possible effects of training involved in the children's discussions gathered in project no. 5-8344 (contract no. Oe-6-10-291), and to provide information to help interpret the language behavior of some children of that study in terms of cognitive developmental levels. The discussion format of the previous study was used with new groups of children (grades one through six). Discussions of three Illinois inquiry training films of physics experiments were analyzed and compared with similar discussions by children of the earlier study. Also, new fourth-grade children from a Nebraska program school and a school with a traditional language arts program were taken in group discussions of children's questions. The behavior of these groups was compared with that of previous study's children. Our results showed--(1) that as children's grade level increased, the types of analogies in terms of which they would look upon the physics experiments changed even though the logical complexity of their expressions showed great variations at every grade level, and (2) that children who had participated in our discussion situation for three years were quicker to respond to the interviewer's suggestions, were able to carry on the discussion for longer periods without the interviewer's intervention, and exhibited a freer use of gesture in connection with their verbal offerings than did the unexperienced groups, regardless of program.
