Continuity in the Early Years: Transitions between Grades and Systems


by Bettye M. Caldwell 1991

That development is continuous, albeit marked by apparent spurts and plateaus, is a truism. The education which should parallel and help to shape that development is, on the other hand, characterized by sharp discontinuities. Moving from one branch to another-e.g., elementary school to secondary school-is more than simply climbing up one rung on the educational ladder. It involves a move into a new culture, a new ecology with a different set of procedures and requirements. Adaptation to the new setting requires more than merely learning where the lockers are and how to use them.
