Children's Understanding of Biology and Health by Michael Siegal

Book Description

This book uses research and theory to an in-depth account of children's understanding of biology and health. Each of the contributors views children's understanding in these areas to be to some extent adaptive to their well-being and survival and uses evidence collected through a variety of different techniques to consider whether young children are capable of basic theorising and understanding of health and illness. Topics ranging from babies to the elderly including birth, death, contamination and contagion, food and pain are examined and close links between research and practice are made with obvious attendant benefits in terms of education and communication. The combination of theory and practice will guarantee the appeal of this book to an international audience of advanced undergraduate and postgraduate students and professionals in areas such as education, child welfare, medicine and law.

Access to Language and Cognitive Development by Michael Siegal Access to Language and Cognitive Development, Hardback (December 2011)

To what extent, and in what ways, is a child's cognitive development influenced by their early experience of, and access to, language? What are the affects on development of impaired access to language? This book is the first to consider how possessing an enhanced or impaired access to language influences a child's development.

Marvelous Minds by Michael Siegal Marvelous Minds, Hardback (February 2008)

Children have a spontaneous interest in the world around them - the workings of the earth, sun, and stars, the nature of number, time and space, or the functioning of the body. Yet what is there in children's minds that is the key to their knowledge? This book examines what children can and do know, based on extensive studies from a range of cultures.

Cognitive Basis of Science by Michael Siegal Cognitive Basis of Science, Paperback (May 2002)

A volume of interdisciplinary essays addressing the question: what makes science possible?
