Piaget’s 4 stages of cognitive development.
Description Paigets 4 stages of cognitive development Can you please some primary research. What I mean by primary research is that you will use one of the descriptive methods. To actually test the predictions from the theory When you apply Piaget’s theory, We will be using his clinical interview techniques to more directly examine the thinking of a child–For example- present the child with several examples of conservation problems and describe how he or she responded. Also use an observational method to describe, for example, “transductive” reasoning. Note that if you do use a naturalistic observation for Piaget you need to clearly connect the behavior with his stage-related schemes. combine the two techniques if using Piaget’s theory. Citation guidelines- APA Citation Guidelines use JCCC version or the Purdue site (Links to an external site.) (sidebar on in-text citations, etc…This is a very nicely laid out presentation of APA style). (Note there are citation generators which also help you especially for bibliographies–e.g.,http://www.citationmachine.net/ ) What my teacher said- You write-up needs to include the following: A review of piaget’s theory (e.g., stages if it is a stage theory) AND the various developmental issues relevant to understanding that theory’s predictions about development (e.g., does the theory assume continuous or discontinuous development?). The research method you employed. If you did an interview, discuss the types of questions you asked. If you designed a questionnaire of some sort, please submit it with your paper (as an appendix). Don’t forget to also describe your subjects and why you selected them. Discuss your findings from your research and analyze whether they support the theory’s predictions. (I know you are just making general inferences—not one heavy on quantitative data). Relevant support or criticisms of the theory if it applies to your observations and research discussed either by Berk (2010) or in the web lectures…We definitely go heavy on criticisms especially with stage theories. At least one APA citation within the body of your paper (e.g., Berk or a research study)… A bibliography of your sources
