Montessori : the science behind the genius by Angeline Stoll Lillard( Book )

46 editions published between 2005 and 2017 in 3 languages and held by 2,938 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Traditional American schooling is in constant crisis because it is based on two poor models for children's learning: the school as a factory and the child as a blank slate. School reforms repeatedly fail by not penetrating these models. One hundred years ago, Maria Montessori, the first female physician in Italy, devised a very different method of educating children, based on her observations of how they naturally learn. Does Montessori education provide a viable alternative to traditional schooling? Do Dr. Montessori's theories and practices stand up to the scrutiny of modern-day developmental psychology? Can developmental psychology tell us anything about how and why Montessori methods work? In Montessori, the author shows that science has finally caught up with Maria Montessori: Current scientific research provides astounding support for her major insights. She presents the research concerning eight insights that are foundational to Montessori education and describes how each of these insights is applied in the Montessori classroom. In reading this book, parents and teachers alike will develop a clear understanding of what happens in a Montessori classroom and, more important, why it happens and why it works. Montessori however, does much more than explain the scientific basis for Montessori's system. Amid the clamor for evidence-based education, this book presents the studies that show how children learn best, makes clear why many traditional practices come up short, and describes an ingenious alternative that works. Everyone interested in education, at all levels and in all forms, will take from this book a wealth of insights on how to improve teaching effectiveness. Montessori is indispensable reading for anyone interested in what psychologists know about human learning and development

Video game influences on aggression, cognition, and attention( Book )

1 edition published in 2018 in English and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book addresses the ongoing scientific debates regarding video games and their effects on players. The book features opposing perspectives and offers point and counterpoint exchanges in which researchers on both sides of a specific topic make their best case for their findings and analysis. Chapters cover both positive and negative effects of video games on players' behavior and cognition, from contributing to violence and alienation to promoting therapeutic outcomes for types of cognitive dysfunction."--
Montessori : une révolution pédagogique soutenue par la science by Angeline Stoll Lillard( Book )

2 editions published in 2018 in French and English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

La 4e de couverture indique : "Au début du XXe siècle, l'Italienne Maria Montessori, une des premières femmes médecins d'Europe, proposait une approche éducative novatrice, adoptant une démarche scientifique fondée sur l'observation des enfants. Depuis, la recherche ne cesse de confirmer les propositions de cette grande pédagogue, dont la renommée internationale est toujours grandissante. Dans cet ouvrage, le professeur Angeline Stoll Lillard expose le fruit de ses propres analyses, ainsi que de nombreux travaux d'autres chercheurs, confirmant le bien-fondé des propositions montessoriennes. Elle y décrit clairement les idées essentielles de la pédagogie Montessori, explique pourquoi cette proposition est révolutionnaire, adaptée à notre société, à l'école comme à la maison, et ce qui fait son génie et son succès. Elle montre également en quoi les pratiques conventionnelles ne sont plus pertinentes. Ce livre révèle une autre manière de percevoir l'enfant et l'éducation, il permet aux parents et aux enseignants de bien comprendre ce qui se joue dans une classe Montessori"

Black Preschoolers' Social Cognition Storytelling and False Belief by Stephanie M Curenton( Book )

1 edition published in 2000 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Noting that the lower performance of low-income children on false belief tasks in comparison to that of middle-income children has not been adequately explained, this study examined the possibility that black children's experiences and talents with storytelling may facilitate their performance on false belief tasks when narrative questions are used. Participating in the study were 36 black and 36 white low-income preschool children (average age 53 months). The children were given two types of false belief (FB) tasks, standard and narrative FB tasks. It was hypothesized that black children would perform better than white children on narrative FB tasks and that black children would perform better on narrative questions than they would on standard questions. Results indicated that black children's scores on the standard and narrative questions were equivalent, but that white children's narrative FB scores were significantly lower than their standard FB scores. Overall, black children had higher scores than white children on narrative questions. Black children's cultural experience with storytelling is cited as a possible reason for their performance on FB tasks. (Contains 14 references.) (KB)
The Role of Narratives in Low-Income, Black Children's False Belief Performance by Stephanie M Curenton( Book )

1 edition published in 2000 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Noting that none of the small number of studies examining false belief performance in low-income children has addressed cultural practices that may help or hinder children's grasp of mental states, this study examined false beliefs from a cultural context, using an ethnically diverse low-income Head Start preschool population. Participating in the study were 36 black and 36 white preschool children with an average age of 53 months. Fifteen of the black children and 18 of the white children were enrolled in Head Start, and the remainder in a non-Head Start program. Children were given a false beliefs task embedded within a narrative: they were shown a wordless picture book, asked to look at the pictures, make up their own story, and listen to the experimenter's story. Afterward, children were asked forced-choice questions about the character's thoughts and the story. Analysis of covariance using language scores as the covariate revealed that black children scored significantly higher on two of the three questions asked. Findings suggested that black children's cultural experience with storytelling contributed to their success in answering questions about a character's beliefs within a narrative context.

Theory of Mind and Children's Engagement in Fantasy Worlds( )

1 edition published in 2015 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

We examined the relationship between theory of mind (ToM) and engaging in fantasy worlds in a short-term longitudinal study. Engagement in fantasy worlds might advance ToM because engaging in alternative worlds is similar to imagining the world from others' viewpoints. Fantasy might also be related to preference for describing others' mental states. To test these theories, we examined relationships between preschoolers' fantasy orientation, ToM, and preference for mentalistic descriptions. ToM and preference for mentalistic descriptions were measured at two time points, 7 months apart, allowing examination of change over time. None of the fantasy measures were related to preference for mentalistic descriptions, but three fantasy measures (child's Fantasy Orientation Interview, parent-reported preference for fantasy media and games, and parent-reported belief in event-related fantasy entities) predicted improvement on ToM over the time period examined. Two of these three did not predict ToM concurrently, highlighting the importance of developmental study
Why Do the Children (Pretend) Play?( )

1 edition published in 2017 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Abstract : Pretend play appears to be an evolved behavior because it is universal and appears on a set schedule. However, no specific functions have been determined for pretend play and empirical tests for its functions in humans are elusive. Yet animal play fighting can serve as an analog, as both activities involve as-if, metacommunicative signaling and symbolism. In the rat and some other animals, adaptive functions of play fighting include assisting social behavior and emotion regulation. Research is presented suggesting that pretend play might serve similar functions for humans. Trends: The study of play in both animals and humans is flourishing. The purpose of human pretend play is not known. By analogy to play fighting in animals, evidence is presented suggesting that pretend play might improve sensitivity to social signals and emotion regulation in humans
