David and Luke are starting kindergarten. They both have loving and supportive parents, but their backgrounds are different. David's social-class background would be classified as "low SES," while Luke's is "high SES." What do researchers mean by "SES"? What are its components? Using examples, illustrate how differences in David's and Luke's backgrounds may influence how readily they will adapt to the Middle-Class school environment.

Researchers usually measure SES as a combination of a family's income and parents' years of education. SES stands for socioeconomic status. Children of different SES backgrounds may differ in their exposure to experiences that resemble school life or school tasks. Some examples are:
•   learning skills such as counting or using a scissors.
•   following directions; language skills in listening or speaking.
•   meeting expectations for intellectual development.
•   observing models for reading and verbal expression.
•   experience with learning materials.
•   educational trips.
•   experiences affected by poor access to health care, and by mothers' prenatal care.
