Summary

This best-selling introduction to Jean Piaget's theory shows readers how children construct and acquire knowledge related to current constructivist approaches.

This text is well-regarded as a work that preserves the historically important research done by Jean Piaget. The Classics Edition retains all of the content of the previous edition and contains updates in critical areas by Barry Wadsworth and a foreword by William Gray, Dean of the School of Education, University of Toledo.

Features

  • New foreword by William Gray, Dean of the School of Education, University of Toledo.
  • Wadsworth's text is highly regarded due to his ability to clarify and summarize many of Piaget's difficult or abstract ideas.
  • A comparison early in the text between the theories of Piaget and Vygotsky clarifies their thinking and differences so that readers can easily identify and incorporate their thinking in instruction.
  • Incorporates practical suggestions for using Piaget's theories in educational settings
