Growth and development of the preadolescent by Arthur Witt Blair( Book )

10 editions published between 1951 and 1966 in English and held by 662 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Blair and Burton examine literature on the preadolescent, gathered from various fields, and analyze, synthesize, and summarize findings on this topic. Their results highlight the importance of social class and developmental tasks in relation to the dramatic levels of maturation that occur in this stage of life. First, the preadolescent is strongly influenced by his peer group and that this peer society is necessary for the child's growth. The child society is an inter- mediate step between adult domination and membership in the adult society. Second, the preadolescent is essentially a realist, who wants to know about reality, so science and sex education are taught more easily at that age level than at adolescence, since the pre-adolescent child is more objective and less emotional than is the adolescent. A third idea is that remediation in study skills or in attitude is progressively more difficult after grade four. Persons who know the field will find the book useful
Education for effective thinking : an introductory text by William H Burton( Book )

10 editions published between 1960 and 1969 in Spanish and English and held by 520 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Thinking as an objective of education. "Teaching students to think" is one of the most commonly expressed aims of education, generally and in almost any subject field. Authorities almost without end could be cited as upholding this as one aim of education. The Harvard Report, General Education in a free society, to cite but one, say: "Education is not merely the imparting of knowledge but the cultivation of certain aptitudes and attitudes in the mind of the young ... These abilities, in our opinion, are : to think effectively, to communicate thought to make relevant judgments, to discriminate among values," The abilities listed represent a large part of the subject matter of our book

The nature and direction of learning by William H Burton( Book )

8 editions published in 1929 in English and held by 282 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

As the title indicates, a considerable portion of this book is devoted to a consideration of the learning process. It is a text that deals more with the theory of method than with the details of classroom procedure. The treatment of the "direction of learning" occupies nearly three-fourths of the book and covers the topics commonly discussed by writers in this field. Interestingly, the author divides this book into five "units," each of which is subdivided into several problems. The typical treatment of a problem includes four phases: (1) exploratory and pretest questions, (2) a discussion of the problem, (3) discussion questions for summarizing and testing, and (4) a list of parallel readings. The "exploratory and pretest questions," (a distinctive characteristic of this volume) are ingenious, and serve to stimulate thinking about the problems considered. This book, with its treatment of methods of teaching, should be a highly effective instrument for use in the professional training of teachers
