Series: McGraw-Hill euthenics series: Publisher: New York ; London : McGraw-Hill Book Co., Inc., 1933Edition: 1st ed.Description: xiv, 322 p. : ill. ; 21 cm.Subject(s): Child development | Learning, Psychology of | Child rearing | Psychology, Comparative | Child Development | Child Rearing | Psychology, ComparativeAdditional physical formats: OriginalDDC classification: 136.7244 | [159.92272535] Online resources: Fulltext available via EBSCOhost - Shibboleth login required Also issued in print.Summary: "The idea of development in learning grows out of the notion that the immature individual progresses toward maturity. It has been the aim of the writer to present some of the steps by means of which the child acquires the skills and methods of response which will enable him to function satisfactorily in collaboration with other human beings. Emphasis is placed upon learning because the response of the growing organism is regarded as a dynamic element which makes acquisition of skill and knowledge possible. An introduction to a study of the ways in which children learn is offered by a description of animal learning in order to show these methods and processes in simplified form and to make the steps in learning obvious. This introductory comparison of human and animal learning is followed by illustrations of child learning drawn for the most part from nursery school situations. The discussion is, therefore, largely limited to the early years of childhood. In order that the starting point of development may be made clear, a description of fetal and early infant learning is included"--Preface.
