A Piaget primer : how a child thinks by Dorothy G Singer( Book )

36 editions published between 1978 and 1997 in English and Undetermined and held by 2,229 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The purpose of A Piaget Primer is to make Piaget's vital work readily accessible to teachers, therapists, students, and of course, parents. Two noted American Psychologists distill Piaget's complex findings into wonderfully clear formulations without sacrificing either subtlety or significance. To accomplish this they employ not only lucid language but such fascinating illuminations of a child's world and vision as Alice's Adventures in Wonderland and Winnie-the-Pooh as well as such recent media manifestations as Barney and Sesame Street. This completely revised edition of this classic work is as enjoyable as it is invaluable - an essential guide to comprehending and communicating with children better than we ever have before
Handbook of children and the media by Dorothy G Singer( Book )

From Internet censorship to levels of television exposure, the effects of mass media on children is one of the most widely debated issues in our society. Bringing together an interdisciplinary group of scholars from around the world, the Handbook of Children and the Media is a comprehensive analysis of the field for students and scholars. This book summarizes the current scope of research on children and the media, suggests directions for future research, and attempts to provide students with a deliberate examination of how children use, enjoy, learn from, and are advantaged or disadvantaged by regular exposure to television and other electronic media. --From publisher's description

Play=learning : how play motivates and enhances children's cognitive and social-emotional growth by Dorothy G Singer( Book )

21 editions published between 2006 and 2010 in English and held by 803 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Why is it that the best and brightest of our children are arriving at college too burned out to profit from the smorgasbord of intellectual delights that they are offered? Why is it that some preschools and kindergartens have a majority of children struggling to master cognitive tasks that are inappropriate for their age? Why is playtime often considered to be time unproductively spent? In Play=Learning, top experts in child development and learning contend that the answers to these questions stem from a single source: in the rush to create a generation of Einsteins, our culture has forgotten about the importance of play for children's development. Presenting a powerful argument about the pervasive and long-term effects of play, Singer, Golinkoff, and Hirsh-Pasek urge researchers and practitioners to reconsider the ways play facilitates development across domains. Over forty years of developmental research indicates that play has enormous benefits to offer children, not the least of which is physical activity in this era of obesity and hypertension. Play provides children with the opportunity to maximize their attention spans, learn to get along with peers, cultivate their creativity, work through their emotions, and gain the academic skills that are the foundation for later learning. Using a variety of methods and studying a wide range of populations, the contributors to this volume demonstrate the powerful effects of play in the intellectual, social, and emotional spheres. Play = learning will be an important resource for students and researchers in developmental psychology. Its research-based policy recommendations will be valuable to teachers, counselors, and school psychologists in their quest to reintroduce play and joyful learning into our school rooms and living rooms

Make-believe : games and activities for imaginative play : a book for parents, teachers, and the young children in their lives by Dorothy G Singer( Book )

1 edition published in 2001 in English and held by 364 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book takes a rather scholarly and extensive look at a part of children's lives that would appear to be instinctive: make-believe. To achieve their stated intent to "suggest ways in which parents and teachers can foster play skills," the authors offer many adult-directed activities that will not only encourage imaginative play but also foster such areas as creativity and cognitive, motor, sensory, and social skills. A table in the front of the book links specific chapters with the development of these skills. Some suggested activities enhance the senses: smelling, tasting, hearing."
