This study was a comparison of the academic readiness gains of middle-class kindergarten and first grade students, using two theoretical approaches to readiness learning. The traditional readiness program based upon the maturation theory was used with the control group, while the Harper Row Learning Readiness System based upon Piaget’s equilibration theory was used for teaching the experimental group.
