The Readiness Issue Today

by Richard M. Brandt - 1970

The more we know about diverse children, the more complex becomes the problem of readiness. Here Professor Brandt reviews relevant research and proposes a number of suggestive new guidelines. The aim of the pre-school classroom, he writes, should be readiness for regular school instruction. For this aim to be realized, however, the teacher must be unusually attentive to individual differences, sensitive to the necessity for adequate record-keeping, and competent enough to provide a variety of learning opportunities. Dr. Brandt's guidelines for the determination of readiness, therefore, become guidelines for effective teaching in pre-school situations; and a number of possibilities are opened to educators willing to rethink the readiness problem once more.
