Cognitive and Language Development in Children gives a detailed coverage of the period from the middle childhood to adolescence. The first chapter introduces the major theoretical influences on modern studies of cogntive development, setting the scene for more detailed analyses of these and other theories. In the following chapters both classical and modern developmental research in a variety of areas are covered, including language, intelligence, drawing, and mathematical and scientific thinking.Compared to standard texts, the scope of the book is considerable, including the influence of current trends such as constructivist theories. In addition, specially commissioned chapters by leading researchers in the field provide different, more specialized perspectives. Readers are encouraged to take a critical, interactive stance throughout.
