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

1 edition published in 2006 in English and held by 11 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

Rhythmic grammar : the influence of rhythm on grammatical variation and change in English by Julia Schlüter( )

1 edition published in 2005 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Focusing on the frequently neglected influence of rhythm on variation and change in English grammar, this book provides a groundbreaking study of interactions at the interface between phonology and morphosyntax. It refines available descriptions of grammatical phenomena by examining the explanatory force of the avoidance of adjacent stressed syllables. The main, empirical part presents twenty detailed analyses of a representative set of structures, most of them combining a synchronic and a diachronic perspective. The analysis is based on an extensive collection of electronic corpora covering the sixteenth to twentieth centuries. A theoretical discussion of implications for linguistic models such as Optimality Theory and spreading activation networks rounds off the volume."--BOOK JACKET

International migration : a very short introduction by Khalid Koser( )

1 edition published in 2007 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Looks at the global phenomenon of human migration--both legal and illegal-revealing how migration actually presents opportunities that must be taken advantage of in light of the current economic climate. The author debunks myths such as the claim that migrants take jobs away from local workers, or that they take advantage of health care systems. He reveals why society as we now know it could not function without them. Using interviews with migrants from around the world, the author presents the human side of topics such as asylum and refugees, human trafficking, migrant smuggling, development, and the international labor force. His goal throughout is to allow readers to see beyond the negative spin usually given the subject by the media and politicians, and come to their own conclusions on the current international migration situation
