The learning child by Dorothy H Cohen( Book )

28 editions published between 1972 and 2012 in English and Spanish and held by 959 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Hailed as a classic in developmental psychology, The Learning Child is as relevant today as when it was first published in 1972, if not more so. Drawing on the findings of psychologists like Piaget, and on the author's own experiences teaching child development at New York's Bank Street College, Cohen explores the crucial links between learning and the successive stages of childhood, and shows parents and teachers how to turn a child's natural instinct for inquiry into a talent for learning that will last a lifetime

This report is a collection of five papers emphasizing the significance of the young child's motor development. Each paper addresses at least one of four objectives: (1) to help develop clearer insights concerning the significance of physical activity in the early years of childhood; (2) to examine the existing body of knowledge from research and experience regarding the motor development of young children; (3) to explore the relationship of motor development to other aspects of development--emotional, social, and intellectual; and (4) to present ideas for an appropriate environment to facilitate the motor development of young children.

Effect of a special program in literature on the vocabulary and reading achievement of second grade children in special service schools by Dorothy H Cohen( )

9 editions published between 1966 and 1967 in English and held by 14 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A special program of literature and accompanying activities was introduced into the curriculum of disadvantaged second-grade children to cause significant measurable improvement in the vocabulary and reading achievement of these children. Seven special-service elementary schools in new york city provided the research setting. At the beginning of the research, 580 second-grade children were administered the free association vocabulary test and the metropolitan reading achievement test, upper primary, grade 2. experimental and control classes were set up on a random basis. For the experimental classes, teachers were asked to read a story every day of the school year from specially selected books. These stories were introduced in an order of increasing difficulty and were each accompanied by followup activities designed to enhance comprehension. Stories read to the control classes were introduced only as an occasional treat and followed no specified pattern. Post-tests administered at the end of the academic year yielded suitable data from 285 pupils. Analyses of covariance led to the conclusion that oral language correlates with reading, and both can be significantly improved by regular exposure to stories read aloud. One of the implications of the research was that teachers, especially teachers of the disadvantaged, must be familiar with children's literature suitable to the age and stage of development of the children they are teaching.

A look at children in China by Dorothy H Cohen( Book )

3 editions published in 1976 in English and held by 8 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This paper explores educational philosophy and its effect on children's development in the People's Republic of China. The Chinese educational system incorporates heterogeneous classrooms and opportunities to "serve the people" through meaningful, productive work in order to foster a perception of group membership among students. The students in China were observed to be healthy, happy, confident, outgoing, and considerate. Children in China under 7 years of age are usually cared for by grandparents or in nurseries, and the warmth and affection of caregivers are valued. After age 7, children are included in a community support system which incorporates units of neighbors to provide direct care for children when necessary. Children are therfore socialized by the school, family, and the community. The Chinese system of all-inclusive health care, the value placed on a stimulating environment in both the school and the home, the nonpunitive attitude maintained by teachers, and the consistency found between parent and teacher attitudes are other facets of the culture which optimize child development in China.

The Technological Distortion of the Child's World The Loss of Interaction by Dorothy H Cohen( Book )

1 edition published in 1975 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This paper discusses the effects of a technological society on the growth and development of children. There is a feeling among preschool and elementary teachers that many children today are excitable, unable to commit themselves to an activity, unable to concentrate well, and speak glibly without understanding. These teachers speculate that imagination may be gradually decreasing among today's children. Technology, which stresses efficiency and speed, results in a growing separation between individual effort and the product of that effort. People have come to measure themselves by the qualities prized in technology (speed, precision, strength, etc.) instead of human qualities (reflection, imagination, feeling, etc.). In a physical sense, children are surrounded by an environment that stresses bigness, the non-intimate, the non-personal, and the distant. Children's television presents images of images, mechanical and sterile versions of flesh and blood reality. Many children seem no longer able to play well, and play is crucial to the child's developing into a fully functioning adult. Although technology has the potential to expand and enrich the scope of human experience, it is urgent now that our focus be on countering its power to deplete and perhaps destroy significant aspects of human functioning.

The Role of the Teacher in the Informal Classroom by Dorothy H Cohen( Book )

1 edition published in 1974 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The role of the teacher in the open classroom, which depends on human intelligence and feeling more than on anything else, is viewed as especially important at a time when powerful attempts are being made to reduce teachers to insignificance by providing them with foolproof packaged teaching materials. In order to function in an open classroom, teachers must recognize their own worth and refuse to accept the stereotype of the incompetency of public school teachers. Of prime importance in the open classroom is the capacity of the teacher for using judgment in making and retracting decisions and in assessing what the teacher and children are in need of learning. The teacher does not hesitate to show her feelings, within socially acceptable bounds, and accepts the feelings of children as well. In the open classroom, the teacher organizes the room for productive interaction of people with each other and with materials and ideas. The teacher herself must be a learner in order to stimulate learning. Evaluation begins and continues with the teacher's perceptions, and the process as well as the end product of a child's learning is evaluated. Finally, the role of the teacher involves interaction with colleagues in establishing a school climate of which her classroom is a part. (Ms)
Learning to Observe Observing to Learn by Dorothy H Cohen( Book )

1 edition published in 1971 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this address, Dorothy H. Cohen admonishes teachers to remain aware that in the classroom they are both teachers and observers trying to find clues to understanding and interaction. Because teachers are human beings with attitudes and beliefs of their own, it is difficult to be objective in making observations of children. An open mind ready to accept anything that there is to see, without judgment, is a prerequisite. Observations of children must begin without any preconceived notions of what one ought to find or will find. Perceptions of children can be influenced by the observer's personal associations, moral judgments, age, and physical well-being. Adults must learn to perceive children's behavior first as it is meant, and only secondarily as it is interpreted by adult standards. Body movement is the major language of expression in early childhood and tells more about the meaning of children's behavior than their words. Teachers must learn to read body language to interpret children's developmental stages of competence, experimentation, testing, and general attitudes toward self. (Author/AJ)
