Piaget, Vygotsky and Erikson all discuss theories of child development giving those who teach high school insight about the level of cognitive development students should be able to achieve academically, socially and psychological.
Piaget believes that children experience specific levels of development at predetermined ages. All children according to Piaget ”are born with a very basic mental structure on which all subsequent learning and knowledge is based”(1). Children then use this basic…
At birth, infants lack many qualities that adults currently value such as, independence, quality vision, cognitive skills, etc. However, with time infants will grow up and obtain these development milestones. In this paper we will be focusing on cognitive and emotional development. Emotional development has several components, neural and physiological responses, desire to take action, feelings, etc. (Siegler, DeLoache, & Eisenberg, 2006). We will be discussing the outcomes of emotion…
on teaching respect and morality. It is during elementary grades that children’s sense of respect and morality starts to develop. At 5 to 8 or 9 years, Piaget’s heteronomous morality stage suggests that a child becomes a moral realist where rules he/she considers unalterable (moral absolutes) are determined by authorities and must be obeyed because violators are punished, while Kohlberg’s punishment and obedience orientation stage suggests that a child obeys rules he/she interprets literally to…
1. First person point-of-view
2. Mia, Adam, Mom, Dad, and Teddy
3. I liked this book because its whole conflict was around something totally different then what most authors would have chosen. It leaves you confused about what Mia might choose and gives points from both options.
Quote: “Sometimes you make choices in life and sometimes choices make you.”
1. It is important for this character because it gives off a feeling of fate. It shows that…
In The Geography of Bliss, Erick Weiner visited around the world for finding where the happiness is. In chapter2, Erick went to Switzerland in order to know the reason why the county is happier than others. Before he arrived, his friend in Switzerland had arranged for him to interview Swiss people. One of them said that happiness comes from its cleanliness and the effort that the Swiss make for avoiding envy, but he also mentioned the connection between nature and the Swiss. When Weiner visited…
In piaget's theory there are four stages of cognitive development that the brain
goes through from birth to adulthood. The four stages are sensorimotor, preoperational,
concrete operational, and formal operational.
The first stage sensorimotor is from birth to about the age of 2. Babies take in the
world through their senses which is hearing, touching, mouthing, and grasping. Young
babies live in the present “out of sight out of mind”. If you show a…
Describe the structure of the body, from simplest to most complex, in terms of the six levels of organization:
There are six levels of organization when in comes to the human body. These structures include the following; chemical, cellular, tissue, organ, organ system & organisms.
Below I have provided an example from our textbook that really helped:
As you can see, the higher levels of organization are built from the lower levels. This means cells combine to form tissue, tissue…
Jean Piaget, a Swiss psychologist and genetic epistemologist, is one of the most widely known cognitivist; he studied how children think as well as the nature of intelligence. According to (Cherry, Jean Piaget Biography (1896-1980), 2016), “Prior to Piaget’s theory, children were often thought of simply as mini-adults. Instead, Piaget suggested that the way children think is fundamentally different from the way that adults think.” “Piaget was the first psychologist to make a systematics study of…
When we discuss child development, we frequently talk about milestones that kids hit at particular age. So what exactly are milestones? A developmental milestone is a capacity that is accomplished by most kids by a specific age. Developmental milestones can include physical, social, emotional, cognitive, and communication abilities. (Cherry, 2017)
Developmental milestones are groups of functional skills or age-specific task most kids can do at particular age range. Milestones are used by…
Maturity is part of the mental and emotional state of an adult. Maturity is
behaving responsibly. There’s a time where everybody needs to grown up. I’ve became a hard
worker other than being lazy. Dressing neatly is a way to show that you’re prepared to work
hard. There are several ways that I’ve become mature in college. I have learned to use my time
wisely, good manners, and being well prepared. I believe these factors will enable me to be
successful in life. Also, it will give…
