Child Development: A Study of Growth Processes.
Cohen, Stewart, Ed.
This text is a series of readings designed to introduce the student to scientific research on children. Choice of material for inclusion was based on: (1) the provision of a wide selection of the developmental literature, its origins and growth; (2) the presentation of examples of empirical research, and (3) the selection of articles representing broad, rather than specific, subject matter and various schools of thought. Chapter topics presented include learning, motivation, cognition, language, social and personality development, and methods of child study. (Author/AJ)
