Children Learning: Samples of Everyday Life of Children at Home.
Shaw, Jean W.; Schoggen, Maxine
This handbook describes young children's interaction with people, particularly their mothers. Children from contrasting socioeconomic conditions were used as subjects, and descriptions of these six 3-year-olds in their homes are related in detail. The home observation excerpts deal with the effect of mothers' instructions and demonstrations on their children, the experiences mothers provide for their children in the home, children's subsequent learning, and mothers' influences on children's language development. An appendix gives possible answers to the study suggestions. Each description is followed by suggestions for study and comments. A section on play is in preparation. The handbook is intended to be used as supplementary material for training adults who work with young children. (DR)
