It gives specific details about high school students and statistics, as well as, describes the challenges faced in educating high school students. The reference also provides some possible approaches to fixing the problems that high schools are dealing with in regards to preparing children for the outside world.

Piaget Stages of Cognitive Development Walliann Vaughn PSY/390 August 19, 2012 Kathy Rupe Stage | Image | Ages | Details | SensorimotorStage | | 0-2 years | This is the first stage in Jean Piaget’s Stages of Development. It is in this stage learning is done through movements made and the sensations that are a result of the movement. During this stage there are three major things that are learned and they are: * The idea that things exist separately from the objects and people that are around them. * They themselves can cause things to happen. * Things still exist even when the child cannot see them.
(Describe these concepts in your own words to earn 1 grade point) Author defines metacognition an cognitive strategies as strategies that are important and needed in order for a child to understand how their mind works and also how they can take control of it 2. Do children develop their metacognitive strategies
It is at this point that a child is usually referred to the Special Education department and an Individual Education Program is developed for the child. (Bradley et al, 2010) The interventions needed for this level vary greatly and as the general education teacher, you will receive guidance from the special education staff if you have a child on this level. Some of the typical interventions used at Tier Three level are: direct teaching of prosocial skills; changing antecedent conditions to pre-empt behavior issues; and change of placement to decrease stimulation levels. (Fairbanks et al, 2007) Our Special Education staff here at Utopia School will provide you with any necessary training, documentation sheets, and assistance to implement the interventions that are decided upon. The goal is for the student to remain in the least restrictive environment while
Influences on Elementary and Middle Schools Jean Piaget and Lev Vygotsky Influences on Elementary and Middle Schools Jean Piaget and Lev Vygotsky The influence of academic researchers, Jean Piaget and Lev Vygotsky, has heavily influenced both the elementary and middle schools of the 21st Century. Both theorists have contributed to the field of education by offering their distinct explanations for children’s cognitive learning styles and capabilities. We can find their influence not only in classroom teaching styles and curricula and pedagogy, but also in the design of school buildings. Every experience and interaction has an impact on early development and this is especially important in the classroom environment where interactions establish cognitive base. This is known as the cognitive development theory, as children actively construct knowledge as they manipulate and explore their world.
Critique #3 1. What importance does Dewey give to the group in learning? Examine the contemporary emphasis on collaborative learning as an example of the educative power of the group. Provide specific examples from your experiences. As John Dewey once stated “Education is not preparation for life; education is life itself”, his perspective of education also emphasizes on the collaboration among learners to an end of academic achievement, just like how importance for people to interact with others if they are to succeed.
Various psychological theories on human development are based on the concept of “stage”. The key to stage theories is the understanding of stages as unique stages of development, with each stage personified by its own special behavioural and cognitive characteristics. According to child development and psychological research, all individuals progress through the same stages in a fixed chronological order. Foundation stage and key stage 1 Young children are still developing their language and communication skill they will have to be reminded of listening carefully when others are talking. When we are talking to young children we have to speak clearly slowly and not using big words as they won’t understand what we are saying.
The principles of neobehaviorism are learning by observing, and that learning may occur through observation alone without a change in behavior (Lieberman, 2012). Neobehaviorism was developed from the works of Edward C. Tolman and Clark Hull amendment of the S-R theory (Lieberman, 2012). Their views was that behavior cannot be explained only in the terms of observable stimulus and reactions. Due to the disagreement by behaviorists not being able to agree on which theory was correct the learning system developed two systems that are still in use today, associative and cognitive (Lieberman, 2012). People learn through pursuing signs to a certain goal, and learning is acquired by meaningful behavior.
“It is important to realize that if students view strategy instruction and learning as simply a matter of fulfilling the requirements of the syllabus, it is unlikely that they will internalize strategies discussed in class and use them as tools for achieving progress in learning.” (Zhang, 2011). Learning your styles will help to familiarize yourself with your strongest points of learning down to what you need help
