This book of play activities for children from 2 months to 2 years of age is designed to be used by parents, caregivers, or child care students. The games described include activities for motor, language and cognitive development, self-concept development, and interpersonal relationships. The games are grouped into eight series based on the child's age or developmental level. The descriptions of the games include the position of the parent and child, the actions involved, the goal and purpose of the game, and related activities of further extensions of the game. Each description also includes illustrations to help clarify the activities involved. In addition to the classification of the games by age, a list at the end of the book also groups the games according to the learning activity involved. (Bd)

On early learning: the modifiability of human potential by Ira J Gordon( Book )

6 editions published in 1971 in English and held by 223 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Three major educational goals suggested for the child are: (1) that he learn to balance a concept of himself as both an individual and a group member; (2) that he became competent so that he will feel he can influence the events that affect his life; and (3) that he develop a positive sense of self-esteem. A transactional view of development and the role of culture are discussed, and an overview of longitudinal studies which explore relationships between early child experience and later personality and intellectual development is presented. Studies which investigate the effects of different types of stimulation upon the development of the young child are discussed. The need for new measures of intellectual development in the early years is emphasized, for measures currently in use have no predictive validity. Educators should not confine their efforts to the cognitive domain, but should involve parents and the general community in all aspects of education, including decision making. (Nh)
Parent involvement in compensatory education by Ira J Gordon( Book )

7 editions published between 1968 and 1970 in English and Undetermined and held by 192 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This monograph considers the effects of the family on the intellectual and personal development of the child, and the effects of culture upon the family's way of life, and thus, on the child. In a survey of early compensatory education projects, university based programs, and school and community programs are described. Program organizational questions discussed are: locus of control, location of service, purposes and goals, and use of personnel. A status report of parental participation in compensatory education is given and program content for parental involvement is discussed, with emphasis on the importance of home visitation programs. The need for improved research and evaluation design and methods is stressed. (Nh)

Relationships between personality variables and classroom behavior of teaching interns by Ira J Gordon( Book )

5 editions published in 1964 in English and held by 60 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A study was undertaken to determine the relationship between (teacher) interns' scores on personality schedules and case study instruments and the emotional climate of their classroom. There were three general categories of hypotheses--(1) those pertaining to the relationship between personality variables and behavioral variables, (2) those pertaining to other characteristics of the teaching intern and both personality and behavioral variables, and (3) those pertaining to personality perception and its relationship to both personality variables and teaching behavior. Subjects in the study were interns from elementary schools, junior high, and senior high schools. The subjects were rated by trained observers using an observation schedule designed to decrease the amount of judgment required of the observer. This schedule was named oscar (medley and mitzel). The subjects were administered the edwards, thurstone, and "debbie" and "alice" case instruments before beginning their intern work. Data from the tests were analyzed separately by sex and teaching level in relation to the oscar score. Each matrix was factor analyzed to disclose the fundamental dimensions implicit in the measure. The project failed to confirm any of the particular relationships found between observed behavior and personality schedules by ryans, and medley and mitzel. Relationships were not clear. A number of suggestions for further research, using teachers rather than interns, were presented. (Jc)
An inter-disciplinary approach to improving the development of culturally disadvantaged children by Ira J Gordon( Book )

4 editions published in 1966 in English and held by 59 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is the tutorial program of the interdisciplinary program to improve the development of culturally disadvantaged children. The objectives were to (1) improve pupils' attitudes toward teachers and schools, (2) improve pupils' self-concepts in the areas of academic ability, and (3) increase pupils' general level of physical health. The tutoring population were education majors in the beginning psychological foundation courses who prepared and maintained complete diaries of tutorial sessions which were submitted weekly to classroom teachers and the student's professor. The 60 pupils selected for tutoring 1 hour a week for 20 sessions were from a then-negro elementary school, a then-white elementary school, and a then-white junior high school which served the lower class section of town. Physicians and nursing students were used where physical condition affected scholastic performance. Physical examination records, behavior description charts, self-concept inventories, home and student interviews, attendance records, and tutorial evaluation forms were the data sources. Conclusive results were not obtained. Suggestions and recommendations are included. (Gc)
Interpersonal perception : the effect of training in perceptual theory, observation and analysis of behavior upon accuracy of prediction of children's self-reports by University of Florida( Book )

5 editions published in 1962 in English and held by 50 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The purpose was to substantiate the hypothesis that training college students in self-perceptual theory, in observing child behavior, and in analyzing behavior from a perceptual orientation increases their ability to infer from the behavior records of a child his statements about himself. Three groups of subjects, one experimental and two controls, participated, making up a total sample of about 230 students. Approximately 70 of these (assigned to the experimental group) received advanced training in a human development course which emphasized the combination of perceptual theory and analysis. Each group was given a pre- and post-test to measure its ability to infer self-perceptions of a child in accordance with the procedure described in the project hypothesis. Correlations were computed for all student responses, and an analysis of variance design was used to test the effect of training upon ability to infer. The study hypothesis was not substantiated by the results. The project, however, did lead to the development of two instruments which reliably detected individual differences in ability to infer self-reports from the mimeographed observational data. Thus, for the purpose of further research, the need for a shift in approach was implied--from the aspect of intensive group training to the point of concentrating effort on the individual perceiver or inferrer of behavior and child's self.
