Charlesworth, Wiliam R.; Dzur, Claire
Child Development, v58 n1 p191-200 Feb 1987
Tested hypothesis that 4- and 5-year-old children in same-sex problem-solving groups would perform equally well when a group task required various cooperative and self-serving behaviors to enable group to obtain a resource. The hypothesis that girls and boys would employ different behaviors to obtain resource was also tested. Participants were 20 same-sex, same-age groups of four children each. (Author/RH)
