Piaget's theory of intellectual development : an introduction by Herbert Ginsburg( Book )

76 editions published between 1969 and 1991 in 4 languages and held by 3,692 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

We have written this book in the hope of assisting the beginning student of Piaget. It is a brief introduction to his basic ideas and findings concerning the child's intellectual development. We hope that the book will be useful to students, particularly undergraduates, in psychology, education, and allied fields. The book may be used as supplementary reading, in whole or part, in courses dealing with child psychology, cognition, educational psychology, and so on. We hope, too, that the book may be read with profit by the general reader. - Preface

Content and Methods of Early Childhood Education and Care Programmes in Hong Kong by Sylvia Opper( Book )

1 edition published in 1989 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The content and methods of nurseries and kindergartens in Hong Kong were compared in this paper. Particular attention was given to: (1) the kinds of activities provided for children; (2) the use of grouping, textbooks, tests and examinations; (3) the allocation of homework; and (4) the role of the teacher. Data were gathered by means of interviews of principals of 69 preschools, 59 kindergartens, and 10 nurseries. Findings indicated that the program of Hong Kong preschools included both developmentally appropriate and inappropriate practices. Appropriate practices included the provision of a variety of activities for all areas of children's development. Children worked in small groups at least part of the time. These groups were in some cases determined by characteristics of the child, such as age and skill level. The number of textbooks tended to increase with age. Developmentally inappropriate practices included early introduction of the three R's and assignment of homework as early as 3 years. Tests were extensively used. Student choices were restricted in such areas as seating and materials. Small groups, when formed, were often determined randomly, rather than by consideration of the child's interests, needs, and motivations. Of the two program types, nurseries appeared to offer a more developmentally paced curriculum up to the student's fifth year, when program differences disappeared. (Rh)

Families speak : early childhood care and education in 11 countries by International Association for the Evaluation of Educational Achievement( Book )

1 edition published in 1994 in Undetermined and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

This report presents Phase 1 of the International Association for the Evaluation of Educational Achievement (iea) 3-phase Preprimary Project being conducted in 11 to 15 countries. The project spans the years 1987 through 1997. The Preprimary Project has been designed to be conducted in three interrelated phases: Phase 1, a household survey in each participating nation to determine the types of early care and education services used by families, some characteristics of these families, and daily-life patterns of 4-year-olds; Phase 2, an in-depth study of sample settings identified in Phase 1 to determine quality of care and education in various settings, to examine interactive and structural features of these settings, and to explore program and family factors on developmental status in 4-year-olds; Phase 3, follow-up studies of development and progress in Phase 1 children at age 7. Initially, Phase 1 documented what 11 nations' official government policies have been historically toward early childhood services. They are: Belgium, The People's Republic of China, Finland, Germany, Hong Kong, Italy, Nigeria, Portugal, Spain, Thailand, and the United States. Notably, over 60% of all children surveyed spend at least some time in extraparental care or education settings. Ten major findings resulted from the Phase 1 inquiries: (1) the trend from parent care to out-of-home care or education for preschoolers is linked to the movement of women into the paid workforce; (2) the trend toward extraparental care or education is not likely to be reversed; (3) most of the children receiving extraparental care or education do so in only one such setting; (4) these children spend from 17 to 55 hours per week in extraparental settings; (5) parents electing to keep their children at home did so for parent-related reasons; (6) most out-of-home care or education services are sponsored by government or religious groups; (7) few such settings or services offered comprehensive service; (8) without exception and irrespective of stage of economic development, in each country it was the mothers who took primary responsibility for preschooler's care and supervision; (9) nonfamilial caregivers spend a widely varying amount of time daily with these children and, in some of the countries, preschoolers are left alone for extended periods; (10) the majority of children spend most of the time at home or in an organized care center.
