Cognitive development: long­term development in thinking and memory processes ● ZPD: range of activities that a child can perform with the help of others,  but not yet independently Piaget’s Theory of Cognitive development ● sensorimotor(0­2yrs): child can begin to understand object  permanence(when an object isn’t there, but the child knows it exists) ● preoperational(2­7yrs): child begins to understand law of conservation,  and engage in dramatic play ● Concrete operational(7­11yrs): children can understand concrete  objects/ideas. Develop the ability of reversibility(understanding things in other  orders in which they happen). They can focus on more than one problem at a  time. ● Formal Operational(11­adult): person can understand abstract thinking  and hypothetical reasoning Speech and Language Development ● Preintellectual speech: begins with the infant’s cry, soon the infant begins  babbling and laughing ● Autonomous speech: allow for infant to communicate with adults,  eventually their made up word for the object, becomes the actual word ● Naive psychology(18­24 months): child learns that objects are referred to  by names, connections develop between words and objects. ● Communicative speech: speech for others ● Egocentric speech: speech for oneself. Occurs in the presence of other  children involved in the same activity ● Language: Sequence of arbitrary symbols which are connected in an  orderly fashion ○ Pragmatics: rules for the language to be an effective  communicator in a particular culture ○ Sensitive periods: times when we are especially responsive  to learning certain things ○ Critical periods: learning doesn’t happen during these  periods. It never will ● ELL or LEL: these students tend to present issues for teachers ○ Bilingualism works best with additive approaches ■ This means both languages are supported and  developed ● Language loss: Students may learn English, but also their ability to speak  their native language Behaviorist Theory(Skinner) ● Views child as a blank slate ● Reinforcing correct words increase frequency of them ● Imitation, rewards, practice ● Doesn’t take biological processes into account Nativist Theory ● Infants have an inborn capacity for language ○ Universal grammar ● Language acquisition device: universal ability to learn a language, flip a  switch and you are able to learn a new language ● Sensitive periods of language(3 years old need to hear another language,  so they are more likely to be able to learn that language) Interactionist theories ● Language develops from the interaction of biological, cognitive and  environmental influences ● General biological preparedness to learn language ● Child has a strong desire to communicate with other but has a biological  preparedness to communicate Moral Development ● Morality: the system of beliefs about what is right and good compared to  what is wrong and bad ● Morality of justice: about respect for fairness, equality and individual’s  independence ● Morality of care: human responsibilities: about caring for one another,  showing consideration and interdependence among individuals Kohlberg’s Theory: Social Justice Base ● Preconventional level: preschool period of life ○ Obedience and punishment ○ Market exchange ■ Child wants to keep out of trouble and their  behavior is rewarded if they do such, which reinforces that behavior ● Conventional level ○ Peer opinion ○ Law and order ■ At this stage, children believe that if their peers do it, it is okay for them to do it as well ● Postconventional level ○ Social contract  ○ Universal principles ■ Child begins to think about the laws and  whether their actions are morally good for the community Criticisms of Kohlberg's Theory ● Only worked with American males ● Moral reasoning doesn’t always equal moral behavior ● Moral choices involve more than reasoning Gilligan’s Theory: Morality of Care ● Position 1: survival orientation: person only cares for oneself ● Position 2: conventional care: action that considers others needs and  preferences but not one’s own ● Position 3: integrated care: integrated care: action that attempt to  coordinate one's own needs with those of others Character Development ● Character education: goes beyond teaching students to obey ethical rules ○ Invites students to think about the broad questions affecting  their life ○ The goal of this education is to develop the students  capacities to respond to daily ethical choice ○ To aid in character education the whole school must be  involved!
