For this assignment, we are going to take a more in depth look at cognitive development as viewed by Jean Piaget. Piaget identified this stage of development as the concrete operational period, a time when logical thought and rational thinking evolve. Three of the most commonly mentioned concepts around cognitive development during this time period are conservation, classification and seriation. For this assignment, you are asked to do the following.
- Briefly summarize each concept. Additionally, provide an example of how each concept may impact a child’s functioning in a home, educational and social setting.
- Using APA formatting, include a title page, body (with intro and conclusion), in- text citations and reference page with a minimum of 3 academic references (textbooks, peer reviewed research articles– using the APUS online library is recommended). Submission should be 2-3 pages in length.
