The Effects of Play Tutoring on Young Children's Cognitive Performance.
Christie, James F.
Journal of Educational Research, v76 n6 p326-30 Jul-Aug 1983
Preschool children received either play tutoring or skills tutoring in an attempt to determine (1) whether play tutoring increases children's verbal intelligence and creativity and (2) which factor--play or adult contact--is responsible for gains from play tutoring. Adult contact was found to be the chief reason for cognitive gains. (Author/PP)
