9780131312104: Children's Thinking

This book brings together major research findings and theories on the development of children's thinking from infancy to adolescence, and also considers the subsequent practical implications.

This new edition includes a chapter on problem-solving, highlights major new theories of cognitive development from Ceci, Halford, Keil, Markman and Wellman and discusses the development of such fundamental concepts as time, space and mind. Major emphasis is placed on infants' attention and perception in the first days of life whilst there is thorough exploration of the relation between brain maturation and cognitive development.

From the Back Cover:

This book offers a unified account of major research findings and theories on the development of children's thinking from infancy to adolescence as well as the practical implications. The book examines the change processes of development, as well as the nature of the changes in language, perception, memory, conceptual understanding, and problem-solving that mark cognitive development. Eight central themes presented in the first chapter integrate and unify the presentation. It examines emerging topics such as the possibility of multiple intelligences, the influence of the social environment on children's thinking, and the role of principles in guiding learning. It discusses how children learn reading, writing, and mathematical skills, and details the learning abilities of blind, deaf, gifted, and retarded children. It highlights the major theories of cognitive development; Piaget, neo-Piagetian, information-processing, sociocultural, theory-theory, connectionist, and multiple intelligences. This is a valuable book for any parent or professional who wishes or needs a greater understanding of the ways in which children -- from infants to adolescents -- learn and develop.
