Childhood Cognitive Development

Hardback
The field of cognitive development is an exciting one that has undergone a revolution in the past generation, with a wealth of new findings, methods and theoretical ideas that transform our understanding of children's thinking. This new SAGE Major Work presents a collection of important papers - both classic and contemporary - that cover key contributions in the area of cognitive development in children, designed to be a touchstone text for scholars, practitioners and educators with an interest in children's thinking. Although the primary focus is on basic scientific research, each volume also discusses important applied issues, such as role of critical periods in perceptual development, or the implications of cognitive development for learning in academic contexts. Volume One: Basic Processes Volume Two: Concepts, Categories and Language Volume Three: Core Theories Volume Four: Reasoning, Problem-Solving and Academic Skills Volume Five: Context and Culture
