Family, culture affect whether intelligence leads to education (9/29/2010)

Intelligence isn't the only thing that predicts how much education people get; family, culture, and other factors are important, too. A new Psychological Science study compares identical and fraternal twins in Minnesota and Sweden to explore how genetic and environmental factors involved in educational differ in countries with different educational systems. Family background can get an education even for people of low intelligence, the authors conclude -- but helps much more in Minnesota, than in Sweden. ...> Full Article

For 4-year-olds, interactions with teacher key to gains (9/18/2010)

Preschoolers who spend much of their classroom day engaged in so-called "free-choice play" make smaller gains in language and math skills than children who receive input from teachers in a range of other activity settings. Researchers studied more than 2,700 children enrolled in public pre-kindergarten programs, more than half of whom were in poverty. They found that children engaged in free-choice play made smaller academic gains than children who spent less time in free-choice play. ...> Full Article


Gender gap in spatial ability can be reduced through training (9/17/2010)

A new study describes an intervention that is effective in eliminating the gender gap in spatial abilities.

High-quality child care for low-income children: Long-term benefits (9/16/2010)

Children in high-quality preschool settings had fewer behavior problems in middle childhood, a new longitudinal study of low-income children found.

The study also found that high-quality child care was particularly important for boys and for African-American children. ...> Full Article

Having a male co-twin improves mental rotation performance in females (9/8/2010)
