Using Picture books to Illustrate Psychology Concepts

Page history last edited by Sue Frantz 8 years, 11 months ago

Main -> In the Classroom: Educational Psychology -> Using picture books to illustrate psychology concepts


Zambo and Hansen (2005) described several ways to use children’s picture books to demonstrate and illustrate educational psychology concepts. For example, the Lilly’s Purple Plastic Purse (Henkes, 1996) or A Weekend with Wendel (Henkes, 1986) can be used to make Piaget’s theory more understandable and create images of Piagetian concepts such as preoperational thinking. A detailed matrix of picture books and corresponding, theory, concepts and/or vocabulary was provided.
