9780856647598: Children's Minds

How and when does a child begin to make sense of the world? Why does a lively preschool child so often become a semiliterate and defeated school failure?

Developmental psychologist Margaret Donaldson shows that much of the intellectual framework on which we base our teaching is misleading. We both underestimate the astonishing rational powers of young children and ignore the major stumbling block that children face when starting school.

Given a setting and a language that makes sense to them in human terms, very young children can perform tasks often thought to be beyond them. The preschool child learns everything in a human situation. Only in school is he asked to acquire skills―reading, writing, arithmetic―isolated from a real-life context. This transition is difficult.

The author suggests a range of strategies that parents and schools can adopt to help children. She argues that reading is even more important than we have thought it to be, since learning to read ca actually speed children through the crucial transition.

This book is an essential source of guidance for parents and all who contribute to a child's education.

About the Author:

Margaret Donaldson was educated at the University of Edinburgh, where she later continued as a teacher and became Professor of Developmental Psychology. Her main research interest has always been in the study of human thought and language. At an early stage in her career she spent some time at Piaget's research institute in Geneva and was much influenced by the experience, although she later came to question some important aspects of Piagetian theory. She is the author of `A Study of Children's Thinking' and `Human Minds', and the co-editor of a book of readings entitled `Early Childhood Development and Education'.

Review:

`One of the most powerful, most wisely balanced and best informed books on the development of the child's mind...Its implications for education are enormous.' Jerome Bruner`A book of great, and very general significance...a classic.' Jack Tizard
