Description

Cognitive Development provides a detailed and accessible account of three main areas: theories of cognitive development, the development of measured intelligence and the development of moral understanding. The theories of Piaget, Vygotsky, Eisenburg and Bruner are discussed. The book is suitable for the AQA-A A2 level examination and students studying cognitive development for the first time at undergraduate level.

The Routledge Modular Psychology series is a completely new approach to introductory level psychology, tailor-made for the new modular style of teaching. Each book covers a topic in more detail than any large text-book can, allowing teacher and student to select material exactly to suit any particular course or project. Especially written for those students new to higher-level study, whether at school. College or university, the books include the following designed features to help with technique:

  • practise essays with specialist commentary to show how to achieve a higher grade
  • chapter summaries and summaries of key research
  • glossary and further reading
  • progress and review exercises.

Series editors: Cara Flanagan is a Reviser for AS and A2 level Psychology and an experienced teacher and examiner. Philip Banyard is Associate Senior Lecturer in Psychology at Nottingham Trent University and a Chief Examiner for AS and A2 level Psychology.
