Free play or flashcards? New study nods to more rigorous preschools
from The New York Times
A group of students at Woodside Community School in Queens peered up at their teacher one morning this month, as she used an overhead projector to display a shape. It looked like a basic geometry lesson one might find in any grade school, except for the audience: They were preschoolers, seated cross-legged on a comfy rug. "What attributes would tell me this is a square?" asked the teacher, Ashley Rzonca. A boy named Mohammed raised his hand, having remembered these concepts from a previous lesson. "A square has four angles and four equal sides," he said.
