The origins of human nature : evolutionary developmental psychology by David F Bjorklund( Book )

23 editions published between 2001 and 2009 in English and held by 880 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The origins of human nature offers readers the first book-length attempt to define the field of evolutionary developmental psychology -- the application of the principle of natural selection to explain contemporary human development. The authors point out that an evolutionary -- developmental perspective allows one to view gene -- environment interactions, the significance of individual differences, and the role of behavior and development in evolution in much greater depth. The authors also focus on how an evolutionary perspective can foster a better understanding of human development and how developmental processes may have influenced the course of human evolution. Of particular interest are chapters that explore factors influencing parenting and other aspects of family life; the role of play; and the interacting roles of an extended juvenile period, a big brain, and a complex social structure in human cognitive evolution. The authors present a hybrid approach to evolution and development, pointing out that though underlying assumptions held by evolutionary and developmental psychologists have been at odds, each field has much to offer the other
Applied child study : a developmental approach by Anthony D Pellegrini( Book )

23 editions published between 1987 and 1998 in English and held by 747 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Child study is a very complex field. Human beings, and children, specifically, are very complex beings. Consequently, simple answers and solutions to problems are very often just that: too simple. This text presents principles and methods for studying chi
The role of play in human development by Anthony D Pellegrini( Book )

14 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 662 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this book, Pellegrini argues that play is an excellent example of the ways in which biology and culture influence each other, especially during childhood. Specifically, the innovative possibilities associated with different forms of play behavior during the juvenile period can influence individuals' skill acquisition, and possibly influence the development of the species. In order to understand play in this broad sense, it is necessary to understand its phylogenetic development (across monkeys, great apes, and humans), its place within human development, and its function(s) and atecedents. Such an understanding of the role of play in childhood has implications for a deeper understanding of the role of development in the human experience. --From publisher's description
Observing children in their natural worlds : a methodological primer by Anthony D Pellegrini( Book )

31 editions published between 1996 and 2013 in English and Undetermined and held by 658 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book is about ways in which to conduct observations. Observational methods are a set of research tools useful in describing and then explaining behaviors and interactions. The methods presented here are drawn from various disciplines: anthropology, psychology, sociology, and education. They can be used to describe people's behavior and interactions in settings as varied as schools, bus queues, and dinner-time conversations. Further, the author draws extensively on the ethological literature that provides thorough and careful methods for observing animals in their natural habitats. Although the author refers to procedures used in various disciplines, his primary focus is on children and adults in school and family settings
Recess : its role in education and development by Anthony D Pellegrini( Book )

9 editions published between 2005 and 2008 in English and held by 618 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Due to tightened school budgets and a reinvigorated emphasis on testing, many elementary schools eliminate recess, gym classes, and play periods, to the developmental detriment of the very children the schools are supposed to serve. Anthony D. Pellegrini has conducted a number of careful studies regarding student attentiveness and performance within programs that have recess periods and those that do not. The data show that recess maximizes students' attention to classroom tasks and interact with each other in the unstructured recess environment in order to grow socially. The goal of Recess is to help readers realize the importance of recess and counter the trend to eliminate it from schools. This book is of interest to academics, teachers, administrators, and parents."--Jacket

"This volume brings together leading experts in developmental psychology and animal behavior to provide a new perspective on the nature and functions of play. Innovative and thought provoking, the book is filled with compelling findings from a range of human and animal settings."

School recess and playground behavior : educational and developmental roles by Anthony D Pellegrini( Book )

14 editions published between 1994 and 1995 in English and held by 349 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Noting that school recess periods are one of the few times when children interact with their peers on their own terms--with minimal adult intervention--this book examines recess behavior and its social and pedagogical implications. In addition to studying spontaneous peer interaction among school children, the book addresses issues of: (1) the role of recess in schools and the curriculum; (2) educational outcomes of recess; (3) relationships between playground design and behavior; (4) and differences in playground behaviors across age and gender groups. The book concludes by noting that recess allows children to make choices regarding whom to interact with and how to socially negotiate interactions; builds a number of high-level cognitive strategies; and raises levels of motivation. Each of the book's 11 chapters contains references. (Sw)
