Question description


Final Paper for this course is an opportunity to demonstrate your knowledge of children's cognitive development and skill by explaining strategies for applying course concepts to working with children in order to meet their diverse needs and abilities. You will write a paper that outlines the development of a child from birth through age eight from both a theoretical and cognitive
skill/knowledge-based perspective. Next, you will explain strategies to apply this information to assist teachers and parents who work with young children. As you explain the strategies, questions to think about include the following:

-What should children in each age range be doing based on their cognitive development?
-How can adults meet the differing needs and abilities of children?
