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

20 editions published between 2006 and 2010 in English and held by 802 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
A mandate for playful learning in preschool : presenting the evidence( Book )

14 editions published between 2009 and 2010 in English and held by 748 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"We are robbing young children of play time in an effort to give them a head start on academic skills. Yet research suggests that eliminating play from the lives of children is taking preschool education in the wrong direction. This brief but compelling book provides a strong counterargument to the rising tide of didactic instruction in preschool classrooms, with scientific evidence showing that playful learning captivates children's minds in ways that lead to better academic and social outcomes as well as strategies for lifelong learning."--Back cover
The origins of grammar : evidence from early language comprehension by Kathy Hirsh-Pasek( Book )

25 editions published between 1996 and 1999 in English and Undetermined and held by 655 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"How do children achieve adult grammatical competence? How do they induce syntactical rules from the bewildering linguistic input that surrounds them? The major debates in language acquisition theory today focus not on whether there are some sensitivities to syntactic information but rather which sensitivities are active in children and how they might be translated into the organizing principles that get syntactic learning off the ground." "The Origins of Grammar presents a synthesis of work done by the authors, using one of the most important methodological advances in language learning in the past decade: the intermodal preferential looking paradigm, which can be used to assess lexical and syntactic knowledge in children as young as thirteen months of age. In addition to drawing together their ground-breaking empirical work, the authors use these results to describe a theory of language learning that emphasizes the role of multiple cues and forces in development. They show how infants shift their reliance on different aspects of linguistic input, moving from a bias to attend to prosodic information to a reliance on semantic information, and finally to a reliance on the syntax itself." "Viewing language acquisition as the product of a biased learner who takes advantage of the information available from a variety of sources in his or her environment, The Origins of Grammar provides a new way of thinking about the process of language comprehension. The analysis borrows insights from theories about the development of mental models, models of early cognitive development, and systems theory and is presented in a way that will be accessible to cognitive and developmental psychologists."--Jacket
Becoming brilliant : what science tells us about raising successful children by Roberta M Golinkoff( Book )

5 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 418 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

While the U.S. economy becomes ever more information-driven, our system of education seems stuck on the idea that "content is king," neglecting other skills that 21st century citizens sorely need. Golinkoff and Hirsh-Pasek introduce the "6 Cs": collaboration, communication, content, critical thinking, creative innovation, and confidence. They also show parents ways they can nurture their children's development in each area
Action meets word : how children learn verbs by Kathy Hirsh-Pasek( Book )

23 editions published between 2005 and 2010 in English and held by 324 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Equipped with new methodologies, we are finally beginning to amass the empirical research that has allowed us to develop a theoretical understanding of early verb learning. As a result, we are now in a position to build on the 1995 Tomasello and Merriman book Beyond Names for Things by examining how far the study of verb learning has advanced during the last decade. Action Meets Word does just that by bringing together the latest research on the universal foundations of verb learning. This cutting-edge volume on the development of a crucial aspect of language will be an invaluable resource for all language researchers, from developmental and cognitive psychologists, to speech/language pathologists, to philosophers and linguists."--Jacket
