Adjustment to physical handicap and illness; a survey of the social psychology of physique and disability by Roger G Barker( Book )

39 editions published between 1946 and 1977 in English and held by 800 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The association of particular kinds of behavior with particular varieties of physique is a frequently observed phenomenon of human nature. In American culture, for example, it requires no extensive investigation to reveal that characteristic differences in behavior are frequently associated with differences in sex, with differences in physical maturity, and with certain differences in race. In cases where grouped data do not reveal such associations, case studies frequently show the importance of the individual's physique as a factor in his personal adjustment. It is with certain aspects of this problem that we are concerned in this publication, namely, the relation between social behavior and personality and normal and pathological variations in physical size, strength, motor ability, sensory acuity, and health. The authors' motivation in preparing this publication has been to bring together what is known in this area and to point out problems for investigation"--Preface.

Midwest and its children; the psychological ecology of an American town by Roger G Barker( Book )

36 editions published between 1954 and 1971 in English and Undetermined and held by 775 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book is about the children of the town of Midwest U.S.A. in the middle years of the twentieth century. It describes in plain language and in concrete detail the everyday behavior of Midwest children and the ordinary circumstances of their lives as these were seen by skilled observers. The volume includes, as well, description in terms of theories and concepts of the behavior and living conditions of these children. It also contains some comparative data upon the children of the Lawton School, a school for crippled children situated in neighboring Capitol City. Parts of the book present methods which, although they were developed to meet specific requirements of the research, are believed to have significance beyond the reported findings.

The stream of behavior; explorations of its structure & content by Roger G Barker( Book )

24 editions published between 1963 and 1965 in English and held by 732 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The chapters of this book report the methods and results of some empirical studies of the stream of behavior; they tell of efforts to cope with the problems we have outlined, and of the successes and failures of these efforts. In one respect the studies tell the same story: they find the behavior stream to consist of discrete, qualitatively different, replicated behavior units. The picture of the behavior stream that emerges from these studies is not quite the confused and confusing, infinitely varying phenomenon it has sometimes been asserted to be. Six of the eleven investigations (Chapters 3, 4, 5, 6, 9 and 11) use as their primary data two or more of the eighteen day-long specimen records which are now available. These records are identified, and sources of further information about them, are given in Appendix 1.1. Two studies (Chapters 7 and 8) use behavior setting specimen records as their primary data. These records have been published (Barker, Wright, Barker & Schoggen, 1961) and two of them are reproduced in Appendix 1.2 where the following behavior units have been marked upon them for illustrative purposes: behavior episodes (as used in Chapters 8, 9 and 10); social contacts (as used in Chapter 5), environmental force units (as used in Chapters 3 and 4), and social actions (as used in Chapter 7). The studies provide, then, evidence of the usefulness of two kinds of primary data (specimen records and recordings of talk) and of a number of analytical approaches. The studies reveal the richness of these records of behavior for many problems and they demonstrate that they have the value of true scientific specimens."

Child behavior and development, a course of representative studies by Roger G Barker( Book )

27 editions published between 1943 and 2010 in English and held by 680 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume aims to provide foundation material for work in child psychology by presenting reports of selected studies prepared for the use of college students. The reports are not essays about research. Each of them is an account of the procedures, results, and conclusions of a particular investigation. Their purpose is to represent not only the products but also the processes of research. The editors have hoped to pack a fairly adequate reserve shelf between the covers of one volume. If that objective has been realized, the book may find use as central rather than collateral reading in courses on child psychology or educational psychology. It would then save for the instructor the role of sketching background, giving points of view, and knitting together the whole field. By way of granting to the instructor a free hand in the organization of the material, the editors have not undertaken to classify the contents. Selected bibliographies covering the field of each study have been included for the guidance of students who may wish to study further. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2005 APA, all rights reserved)

Big school--small school: studies of the effects of high school size upon the behavior and experiences of students; final report by Roger G Barker( Book )

6 editions published in 1962 in English and held by 51 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Studies were made in kansas high schools to determine the effect of school size upon the behavior and experiences of students. The following areas were considered-- the school involved in the study, the data gathered from records and research, out-of-school activities, and the place of high school students in the total life of four small towns. The assumption that a rich curriculum, varied extracurricular activities, and good facilities necessarily mean rich experiences for the students is refuted. This refutation arises from the confusion between facilities and experiences. Most of the studies showed that the greatest participation in student government and extracurricular activities, the largest percentage of students assuming leadership positions and responsibility, the most use made of a variety of courses offered, and the greatest involvement in community life came from those small school-small town adolescents. Schools are specialized environments established in order to produce certain educational opportunities and effects. However, without student participation, enthusiasm, and responsibility, the educational process is not fulfilled, regardless of excellent facilities. Therefore it appears that increasing school size, in and of itself, is relatively ineffective means of achieving richness and variety in education
