From the Back Cover:

Peer Groups and Children's Development considers theexperiences of school-aged children with their peer groups.

The book looks at the formal peer groups that children areplaced in for teaching and learning, covering such topics as theclass size debate, mixed-ability vs. ability-based teaching, genderand classroom dialogue, and dialogic teaching and cooperativelearning. Howe also provides an in-depth examination of the nature,causes, and consequences of a child's informal peer relationships,including those associated with cliques, friendships, andadolescent gangs.

Evidence presented throughout reveals how formal and informalaspects of peer groups interrelate to a great extent in determiningpatterns of development. This has significant implications forresearch and theory, as well as for the practical concerns ofparents, teachers, counselors, school psychologists, and policymakers.

Informed by the latest research and scholarship, Peer Groupsand Children's Development offers revelatory insights into theeffects of peer relationships on a child's intellectual, personaland social development.
