CHILD DEVELOPMENT, 1976, 47, 779-786. The ability of nursery school and first-grade children to learn and transfer a mediational strategy utilizing prepositional relationships between paired-associate objects was investigated under several strategy training conditions: passive observation, active manipulation of objects… Expand
