Death In Children's Literature, Joyce Ann Kaufman Jan 1976

Death In Children's Literature, Joyce Ann Kaufman

Honors Theses

Mr. Wordsworth posed an interesting question. What should a child know about death?

Often we try to protect children from death. Euphemisms are used regarding death. People and pets do not die, they "pass away," "go to sleep," or "go to live in heaven." When a death occurs in a family, the adults often say of a young child, "It doesn't seem to bother him. Maybe he doesn't realize what has happened." Other people may mention that "He has accepted it so well. Children adapt so easily."

Learning Centers, Tanna Murry

Honors Theses

Individualized learning through the Learning Center method is becoming more and more popular in today's classrooms.

In preparing these Learning Centers, I used two basic handbooks: Invitation to Learning: the Learning Center Handbook by Ralph Claude Voight and Learning Centers: Children on Their Own prepared by the Association for Childhood Education International.

Creativity In Pre-School Art, Sharon Kluck Jan 1972

Creativity In Pre-School Art, Sharon Kluck

Honors Theses

"Children are wonderfully fresh and vivacious. What adult can compete with a child's energies? A child's mind runs like a mouse in a maze. He observes, perceives, imitates, and responds as a unique individual." His work is original, using foreign symbols for an image he pulls from his memory. All of the myriad elements, internal and external, influence a child's creation. These works for the young child are expressions of his life's experiences. As he matures in his thinking, he becomes more aware of himself, his family, and the people and things in his environment. He ...

Educational Of The Senses By The Montessori Method, Robert Bray Jan 1967

Educational Of The Senses By The Montessori Method, Robert Bray

Honors Theses

Maria Montessori (1870-1952), the first Italian woman M.D., was one of the great germinal pioneers in studying the intellectual development of the young child. Her philosophy of education (incorporated into the Montessori Method) is that only through movement and manipulation, through thinking with the senses and remaining active, does the child proceed to later abstract thinking. Thus, it is essential that the development of the senses be started early.

A Study Of Family And Personal Relationships Of 69 Girls In A Public Junior College In Mississippi, Fleta Estelle Whitaker Aug 1936

A Study Of Family And Personal Relationships Of 69 Girls In A Public Junior College In Mississippi, Fleta Estelle Whitaker

Masters Theses

(From the Introduction) The extensive development in the physical and biological sciences, according to Flora Rose of Cornell, has resulted in more momentous changes in our environment than had occurred in the previous history of mankind. It is unfortunate, however, that during this same period few developments have been brought about in the social sciences. Because of this, our relationship to our environment and to each other is often unbalanced. Our ways of thinking, feeling, and acting have not changed to meet these new conditions. Thus, our behavior patterns belong to a simpler social organization than the complex one in ...
