Everyone who is concerned about the early years of development in children will find Dr. Biber's book, Early Education and Psychological Development intensely absorbing. It is a fascinating sharing of her experience as a major leader in early education over more than a half-century, at a time when implications of Dewey's thought, and that of Freud, Watson, Piaget were enriching and stimulating the thinking of educators and leaders in the field of child care. The intimate autobiographical context of her historical, psychological, and philosophical discussion plunges the reader into the very process of discovering new awarenesses of the complexity of child development. This is a unique book: it will be a classic, to give perspective to the present generation and those to follow.-Lois Barclay Murphy In this marvelous book, we have a record of the evolution of Barbara Biber's thinking on early childhood education and the personal, scientific, and intellectual forces which shaped her thought...It will be obvious to all who read this book why Biber has long been regarded as the premier worker in the field of early childhood education.-Edward Zigler, from the Foreword No other volume in the literature of early education brings together the reflections of an outstanding leader as they have developed over a period that is almost equivalent to the history of the field...A richly detailed and intimate picture of the construction of a knowledge base for the education of young children.-Millie Almy, American Journal of Education

Theories of infant cognition have transformed radically over the span of less than a century. Once considered unintelligent, infants are now described as partners in their own development. Modern research analyzes the ways in which cognitive and social skills developed early in life help shape intelligence, personality and achievement over time. In Early Childhood Development and Later Outcome, Sabina Pauen has compiled essays by international experts reflecting the state of infant cognition studies and developmental psychology. These essays present cutting-edge research on a broad range of topics of relevance to scientists, teachers and policy makers alike. The volume addresses current research on skill formation as well as longitudinal studies tracing achievement beyond childhood. Collectively, this work points the way toward approaches that will deepen our understanding of infant cognition and the profound consequences of early childhood development for future achievement.

The field of early childhood education and the science of psychology have a long and closely intertwined history. The study of young children's learning within school contexts provides a test of developmental theory while at the same time identifies the limits of psychology for informing practice. The purpose of this book, part of the Rutgers Invitational Symposium on Education Series, is to bring together the work of the leading researchers in the field of child development and early education to inform three issues facing the United States today: * clarifying developmentally appropriate instruction from the perspective of cognitive developmental psychology; * ensuring that young children's schooling adequately addresses content; and * meeting cognitive goals while simultaneously supporting social and emotional development. Throughout, the role of empirical inquiry in developmental psychology for the practice of early education is examined.

Educational psychology is a broad field characterized by the study of individuals in educational settings and how they develop and learn. It incorporates information from such sub-disciplines such as developmental psychology, human development across the life span, curriculum and instruction, motivation, and measurement and assessment. Neil Salkind has mined the rich and extensive backlist of SAGE education and psychology journals to pull together a collection of almost 100 articles to be the definitive research resource on education psychology. Section One: Human Growth and Development focuses on the processes involved in human growth and development including ages and stages of development, different theoretical perspectives and the role and effectiveness of early intervention among other topics. Section Two: Cognition, Learning and Instruction concentrates on the mechanisms, through which individuals learn and retain information. Section Three: Motivation explores why individuals seek out goals and what the mechanisms are that characterize this search as it relates to learning. Section Four: Measurement, Assessment and Statistics looks at the topics that are critical to understanding individual differences, the growth in the use of computers as assessment tools, qualitative and quantitative methods, statistical techniques and evaluation.

Human Development from Early Childhood to Early Adulthood

Data generated from longitudinal studies allow researchers to better understand how context and experience interact with stable characteristics of the developing person over time. This book summarizes a landmark longitudinal study of 200 children, from the ages of 3 to 23. The Munich Longitudinal Study on the Ontogenesis of Individual Competencies (LOGIC) examined the development of individual differences over time and whether it is possible to predict later competencies from earlier ones. Offering a snapshot of theory and data on personality, social, motor, moral, and cognitive development, the contributors help us understand which individual differences can and cannot be altered through schooling and other experiences and how differences seen in the earliest stages are later reflected in adulthood. The results provide valuable insight into the strengths and limitations of early prediction of individual differences. This is the second volume to review the wealth of data generated by the study. The first volume (Weinert and Schneider, 1999) traced development from ages 3 to 12. This volume continues the story, integrating these early findings with the results from adolescence and young adulthood. Each of the chapters provides an overview of current research and addresses how the data help us understand the presence and developmental effects of individual differences. Among the findings are results on: The relative stability of cognitive competencies The long term effects of shyness and aggression The relation between moral understanding and action, and The role of education in the development or maintenance of performance differences. Intended for researchers and advanced students in developmental, educational, personality, social, and cognitive psychology, this book will also appeal to educators, especially the chapters that focus on literacy development, educational context, scientific reasoning and mathematical reasoning.
