Annotated Bibliography on Ethology in Education. Ecological Theory of Teaching.
Miller, Kevin; Frey, Susan
This annotated bibliography focuses on the ethological study of child development and the educational process. Topics covered include: (1) evolution; (2) dominance hierarchies and social organization; (3) agonistic, affiliative, and epistemic behaviors; (4) nonverbal communication; (5) play; (6) biological constraints on learning; and (7) relevant methodological concerns. The first section of the bibliography contains brief annotations of journal articles and monographs. In the second section, references selected from the first section are reviewed in greater depth and summarized. This is one of a series of reports that form a part of the initial phase of a project to develop an ecological theory of teaching. The intent of this series is to provide access to the concepts, paradigms, and findings of the disciplines selected for review. The long-range goal of the project is the development of a theory of teaching that approaches and views classroom teaching and learning from an ecological perspective. (JD)
