SPCL 7804 Human Development: Session 8: Unit 3 – Middle & Late Childhood

Open Educational Resource (OER) created for Professor Elizalde-Utnick's SPCL 7804 course.


Consider Piaget’s theory as it applies to your own cognitive development experiences. How do the information processing theories apply to you?


In this session we transition to school-age children, with a focus on cognitive development. We will explore Piaget’s concrete operations, information processing skills in this age group, as well as learning differences. We will begin with a quiz on the assigned reading and then discuss the material and engage in application activities.
