Logical thinking in children; research based on Piaget's theory by Irving E Sigel( Book )

32 editions published between 1968 and 1969 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,099 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Theoretical and empirical research derived from Piagetian theory is collected on the intellectual development of the elementary school child and his acquisition and utilization of conservation concepts. The articles present diversity of method and motive in the results of replication (validation studies of the description of cognitive growth) and efforts at modifying the course of growth as charted by Piaget. Research is included on quantity conservation concepts at different ages and with situational generality, the development of number concepts (including a scalogram analysis and a comparison of the logic of classes and cardinal numbers), the development of spatial and geometric concepts (also examined by nonverbal methods), and the growth of logical operations (including a scalogram study). Additional areas treated are the acquisition of conservation of substance and weight, quantity, number, learning and operational convergence in logical thought development, effects of verbal and perceptual training on water level representation, and Piagetian research and education. Conservation is discussed theoretically as a source of empirical research, by a stimulus-response analysis, by problems from perception to inference, and on methodological and definitional considerations.

Parental belief systems : the psychological consequences for children by Irving E Sigel( Book )

27 editions published between 1984 and 2014 in English and Undetermined and held by 945 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this volume, investigations representing various cognitive approaches are presented. Holloway and Hess, and Dix and Grusec represent attribution theory. Applegate et al., McGillicuddy-DeLisi, and Johnson reflect Kellyian personal construct theory. Sameroff and Feil employ a Piagetian model of cognition. Schaefer and Edgerton represent a more comprehensive view without a clearly defined cognitive model- rather, they deal with the belief issue in the terms of a broader cultural perspective. Goodnow represents an intersect between culture and cognition. Skinner's paradigm is different in that hers combines constructivism and contingency analysis. Finally, Sigel grapples with the belief construct as discussed among some of the leading theorists as well as in these chapters. The goal is to differentiate beliefs from values and attitudes

Families as learning environments for children by Luis M Laosa( Book )

8 editions published in 1982 in English and held by 508 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The chapters in this volume reflect the work and thoughts of a group of researchers interested in studying families as learning environments for children. As we proceed in our quest to identify and understand with some specificity the familial factors associated with the intellectual and social development of children, the time is ripe for the reintroduction of families as units of study in psychological and educational research. With the increasing focus on the changing organization of the modern family, it is of more than academic interest to identify those variables that play a significant role in the child's development. Such knowledge certainly should help in the planning and design of appropriate and credible applications. These chapters, representing a broad spectrum of research, derive from papers presented and discussed at a working conference on families as learning environments sponsored by Educational Testing Service in Prince ton, New Jersey. Following the conference, the papers were revised and edited for inclusion in this volume. We are indebted to a number of people whose contributions helped make the conference a success: Samuel J. Messick and Winton H. Manning for their support; Jan Flaugher, Jessie Cryer, Linda Kozelski, and Betty Clausen for assistance with local arrangements; and William Nemceff, Kathleen Lingle, and Kalina Gonska for help with the audio-recording of the proceedings.

Images of childhood by C. Philip Hwang( Book )

The twentieth century will surely be remembered as a period of remarkable calamity, vigorous intellectual activity, and striking technological progress. For the first time in history, the development of rapid forms of communication and transportation shrunk the effective size of the world so that many of its citizens were made aware of events occurring in far-distant locations and came to appreciate cultural differences more directly than was previously possible. Among the many trends and events for which the century may be remembered, however, one will surely be the ascendancy of science and

These companion volumes provide a ""behind the scenes"" look into the personal experiences of researchers in an effort to eliminate the lack of communication surrounding family research methodology.
