AN INVESTIGATION INTO THE USE OF DIFFERENT DEGREES OF FILMED VERBAL EXPLANATIONS ON THE ACTIVATION, GENERALIZATION, AND EXTINCTION OF THE CONSERVATION OF SUBSTANCE PROBLEMS IN CHILDREN.
SULLIVAN, EDMUND V.
AN EXTENSION OF MODELING BEHAVIOR INTO COGNITIVE AREAS OF DEVELOPMENT WAS ATTEMPTED THROUGH THE USE OF FILM-MEDIATED MODELS FOR THE ACTIVATION AND GENERALIZATION PHASES OF THE CONSERVATION PROBLEM. FOUR HYPOTHESES WERE SET UP IN AN ATTEMPT TO QUESTION SUCH PREVIOUS EXPLANATIONS OF THE CONSERVATION RESPONSE AS THOSE OF PIAGET AND BRUNER. THE HYPOTHESIS THAT ACTIVATION OF THE CONSERVATION OF SUBSTANCE CAN BE FACILITATED BY THE USE OF FILM-MEDIATED MODELS WAS SUBSTANTIATED. THE HYPOTHESES CONCERNING GENERALIZATION AND EXTINCTION OF THE CONSERVATION RESPONSE WERE NOT SUBSTANTIATED. THE NEGATIVE RESULTS OF THREE OF THE FOUR HYPOTHESES RAISED SOME CENTRAL QUESTIONS CONCERNING PREVIOUS EXPLANATIONS GIVEN FOR THE CONSERVATION RESPONSE. FURTHER STUDIES SHOULD BE MADE ON THE SEMANTICS OF THE CONSERVATION PROBLEM AND ON VERBAL AND NONVERBAL METHODS OF EXPLORATION. (GD)
