3 Baker, Harold V., Ph.D. Children's Contributions in Elementary School General Discussion.
New York: Bureau of Publications, Teachers College, Columbia University, 1942. 
Signed & inscribed by the Author. Octavo, brown cloth (hardcover), paper label, 150 pp. Good, with edgewear and chip to lower spine. From Editor's Preface: In this study Dr. Harold V. Baker makes an important addition to our knowledge of changes that occur in the mental and social orientation of children during the elementary school years. Children's preoccupations and interests, and the characteristics of their communication with one another, were studied by means of systematic records of their contributions during discussion periods...This study does not deal with the problem as to the qualities of group thinking that might be promoted at various age levels under the guidance of an actively participating adult. Rather, it reveals what children contribute, and the extent to which they take account of the contributions of others, when matters are left pretty much in their own hands. Readers will be interested in noting the clear-cut direction of the changes in the content of children's contributions, and the increasing meeting of minds when comparisons are made between youngsters at the second, fourth, and sixth grade levels...

While hanging out in the cafeteria and going to football games and dances, he gained the trust of the students and obtained almost unlimited access into a world few adults can imagine. As he discovered, high school in the 1990s...is also a place where the pressure to succeed can drive students to commit suicide, where others hide guns inside their lockers, and where the usual tortures of adolescence are compounded by drugs, divorce, AIDS< and a widespread emptiness felt by so many teenagers...An affecting and alarming read for both parents and teenagers...”

Octavo, black cloth (hardcover), gilt letters, xvi, 336 pp. Very Good+, with light hightlighting, in a Fine (As New) dust jackt. “One of the first books exclusively devoted to applying the theories, findings, and approaches used in work with nonretarded children to several types of retarded individual. The editors and contributors define the developmental approach and explore theoretical issues as they relate to retarded populations. Problems involving similar sequences of development, cross-domain relations, the enviornment, and motivation are all discussed, as is the importance of separating the verious etiological groups for research and intervention purposes. The contributors also examine the nature of development in specific etiological groups; types of retardation that are addressed include: cultural-familial retardation, Down syndrome, fragile X syndrome, autism, and children with sensory and motor handicaps. This book shows how data from nonretarded development can guide work with retarded populations, and how findings from children with mental retardation enrich developmental theory.”
