The Study of Children: Psychology 13 (Research Course)


by Edward L. Thourdike - 1901

The work of Psychology 13 will be arranged to suit the needs of its members. It is intended not only for students who wish to investigate problems in animal psychology or genetic psychology, but also for such as wish to make empirical studies of the phenomena of school life which cannot conveniently be carried on in the University laboratories or in other research courses. The nature of the work may be seen from the following topics studied during 1900-1901: The mental life of the primates and its relation to human mental development. The mental life of typical mammals. The growth of verbal discrimination in young children. The influence of special forms of training sense discrimination on discriminative ability in general. The influence of special forms of training attention and observation on the general powers of attention and observation. The value of spelling as a formal discipline, i.e., its influence on mental functions in general. The value of Latin as a formal discipline. The correlations between the mental functions involved in school subjects. An inductive study of rhetorical effects with relation to methods of teaching composition.
