This study gives a detailed coverage of language and cognitive development in middle and late childhood. The first chapter introduces major theoretical influences on modern studies of cognitive development, setting the scene for more detailed analyses of these and other theories in following chapters. Both classical and modern developmental research in a variety of areas are covered, including language, intelligence, drawing, and mathematical and scientific thinking. Compared to standard texts, the scope of the book is considerable, including the influence of current trends such as information processing, connectionist and nativist approaches. In addition, specially commissioned chapters by leading researchers in the field (Coulson, Light, Oakhill, Nunes) provide different, more specialized, perspectives. Students are encouraged to take a critical, interactive stance throughout. This book presents a comprehensive and coherent introduction to current issues and approaches to cognitive development. Victor Lee is the author of "Children's Learning in School".
