● Piagetian Stages  ○ Sensorimotor (0-2)  ■ Cognitive development involves learning how to coordinate activities of  the senses with motor activities  ○ Preoperational (2-7)  ■ Capable of representing the world symbolically (e.g. language)  ○ Concrete Operations (7-11)  ■ Become more adept at using mental operations which leads to a more  advanced understanding of the world  ○ Formal Operations (11-15 to 20)  ■ Allows adolescents to reason about more complex tasks and problems  involving multiple variables  ● Piaget’s Theory of Cognitive Development  ○ Formal Operations  ■ Complex tasks and logical, systematic thinking 
■ Hypothetical-deductive reasoning 
● Systematically testing possible solutions to a problem and arriving  at an answer that can be defined and explained   ● Ex. pendulum problem  ■ Abstract thinking  ● Thinking in terms of symbols, ideas, and concepts  ○ Metacognition: ​ adolescents being aware of mental processes; enables learning and  problem solving; “thinking about your own thinking”  ● Keating (2004) on Critical Thinking  ○ Adolescence provides the potential for critical thinking in several ways:  ■ Wider range of knowledge allowing for analysis, relating/connecting,  applying, and questioning information across a variety of domains  ■ Ability to consider different types of knowledge simultaneously  
■ More cognitive strategies for applying/gaining knowledge  
● Post-formal Thinking  ○ Pragmatism and cognitive flexibility  ■ Pragmatism: involves adapting logical thinking to the practical constraints  of real-life situations (life is not black and white, this acknowledges 
ambiguity)
