Herbert P. Ginsburg, professor of psychology and education at Teachers College, Columbia University, will complete an extensive review of the long-running Literacy project, which the Russell Sage Foundation has partnered with the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation. The project has sought to develop and disseminate practical measures for improving literacy among disadvantaged schoolchildren. Ginsburg will write a report and organize a conference reflecting upon the general lessons that can be drawn from the project. He will also begin a book for parents and educators offering new visions of early childhood education, particularly for disadvantaged children. The book will draw upon Ginsburg's own efforts to develop a preschool mathematics curriculum that harnesses children's everyday, untutored mathematical ideas, interests, and enthusiasms.
