Question description

Promoting Cognitive Development

As you  have learned in your readings, Piaget, Erikson, Skinner, and Vygotsky took  different approaches to child development. One’s theoretical perspective  influences approaches to child development. The Jacksons are a young couple  living in Centervale. They have approached Keith, the child development  consultant, for advice on how to promote and nurture the cognitive development  of their preschooler Jasmine. 

              Watch the following video to learn more about the  similarities and differences of developmental theories. Study of the Child: Theories of  Development I, produced by Herzog, Milan & Herzog, Shanta (Learning  Seed, 1997), 29:02 mins obtained from  Alexander Street Press Education in Video from AUO Library.

  • Compare  and contrast the approaches of each of the four perspectives (Piaget, Erikson,  Skinner, and Vygotsky).
  • Explain  how each theorist would approach the issue of cognitive development in early  childhood. Describe how Keith’s advice to Jasmine’s parents might vary  depending on his theoretical perspective.
  • What  role would society and family play in Jasmine’s cognitive development at this  stage of development? What cultural, psychosocial and physical influences will  be seen?
  • Incorporate  information learned in your readings and at least one peer-reviewed* article  from the AUO library to support your conclusions.

* Peer reviewed means an  article from a reputable journal, which can be found in the library. Peer  reviewed indicates that other professionals in the field have reviewed and  deemed it worthy of publication, in contrast to much if what we find online:  someone posting something they want, without someone else verifying that their  methods were rigorous enough and the study is valid.  Use your book and course lectures as your primary  resources, as well as articles from our library. If you must supplement from a  website, do NOT use .coms. Instead, look for .org, .gov, and sometimes .edu for  more reputable sources. Never use Wikipedia or about.com.

Write a 6-7 page paper in Word format. Be sure  to include introductory and concluding paragraphs in your paper, a title page  and a reference page.  Apply APA  standards to citation of sources. Use the following file naming convention: .
