  2. ECE 353 ASH COURSE TUTORIAL ECE 353 Entire Course ECE 353 Week 1 DQ 1 Important Questions in Children Important Questions in Children’s Thinking. Chapter One of your text identifies the six most important questions in the study of children’s thinking: § Are some capabilities innate? § Does development progress through stages? § How does change occur? § How do individuals differ? • ECE 353 Week 1 DQ 1 Important Questions in Children's Thinking • ECE 353 Week 1 DQ 2 Addressing Bias in Intelligence Testing • ECE 353 Week 1 The Piagetian Model • ECE 353 Week 2 DQ 1 Cultural Tools • ECE 353 Week 2 DQ 2 Educational Innovations

  3. ECE 353 ASH COURSE TUTORIAL ECE 353 Week 1 DQ 2 Addressing Bias in Intelligence Testing ECE 353 Week 1 The Piagetian Model The Piagetian Model. There is little argument that while not perfect, Piaget’s theories have had a profound impact on the field of cognitive development. Provide an analysis of his model as well as the challenges to it. In a two- to three-page paper, please include the following components: § Define the four main stages of Piaget’s theory, along with their age ranges • Addressing Bias in Intelligence Testing. Daniel, an eight-year-old child from a poor, inner-city neighborhood, is given a traditional IQ test. One section of the IQ test involves defining various words. “Yacht” is one of the words that Daniel is asked to define. Briefly discuss why the test administrator should be cautious when interpreting Daniel’s performance on this test

  4. ECE 353 ASH COURSE TUTORIAL ECE 353 Week 2 DQ 1 Cultural Tools ECE 353 Week 2 DQ 2 Educational Innovations Educational Innovations. Many educational innovations, such as dynamic assessment and FCL (Fostering Communities of Learners) classrooms, have incorporated insights about learning and development from the sociocultural theories. Chooseeitherdynamic assessment or FCL • Cultural Tools. Cultural tools shape cognitive development and can include both technical tools, which act on the environment, and psychological tools, which are tools for thinking. Discuss Vygotsky’s belief that language is the most significant of the cultural tools.

  5. ECE 353 ASH COURSE TUTORIAL ECE 353 Week 3 DQ 1 Phonological Acquisition ECE 353 Week 3 DQ 2 Memory Facilitation Memory Facilitation. Older children typically remember more than younger children. Identify and describe two strategies that older children use to facilitate their memories. Reflecting on your own personal experiences, what strategies do you employ to improve your memory? Discuss the relevance of strategies that facilitate memory within the context of classroom instruction. Share one instructional strategy that you feel is highly effective for most students.  • Phonological Acquisition. Watch the talk by Patricia Kuhl, entitled The Linguistic Genius of Babies. • How do her findings support language acquisition in regard to phonology as it is described in Chapter Six of your text? Include a discussion of the need for a social context when developing phonological awareness and why. How did your own social context impact your phonological awareness?

  6. ECE 353 ASH COURSE TUTORIAL ECE 353 Week 3 Journal Connecting to Classroom Practices ECE 353 Week 4 DQ 1 Theories of Concept Representation Theories of Concept Representation. Identify and describe one of the three major theories of concept representation: defining-features, probabilistic, or theory-based. What is the mechanism of conceptual development in your chosen theory? Provide an example (not given in the text) that illustrates the mechanisms of your chosen theory. How would a child likely respond to a given scenario from the perspective of your chosen theory?  • Connecting to Classroom Practices. In a one- to two-page journal entry, write a self-reflection. What is the relevance of this course to best practices in the classroom? In other words, how can an understanding of how children think improve your teaching skills

  7. ECE 353 ASH COURSE TUTORIAL ECE 353 Week 4 DQ 2 False Belief Tasks ECE 353 Week 5 DQ 1 Planning in Problem Solving Planning in Problem Solving. Young children often fail to plan, even when doing so would facilitate their problem-solving performance. Select and describe one of the five reasons that children may fail to plan given on pages 357-358 of your text. Construct a classroom-based scenario that illustrates your chosen reason. What is the implication of your reason • False Belief Tasks. According to your text, “the ‘gold standard’ that researchers use to demonstrate understanding of belief is success on tasks that require understanding of one’s own or another person’s false belief” (Siegler, 2005, pg. 318). Young children often fail false belief tasks. This finding has been interpreted in a number of different ways. Give

  8. ECE 353 ASH COURSE TUTORIAL ECE 353 Week 5 DQ 2 Learning in Context ECE 353 Week 5 Final Paper Final Paper Chapter Twelve of your text identifies seven areas of cognitive development that have been addressed in this book:perception, language, memory, conceptual understanding, social cognition, problem solving, and academic skills. Table 12.1 of the chapter also identifies the eight themes of children’s thinking, in general, that have filtered throughout the course of this text. • Learning in Context. Context influences children’s performance in mathematics. This was illustrated in Carraher and colleagues’ (1985) classic study of Brazilian street vendors. Describe the method  and results of Carraher and colleagues’ study, and discuss how the results support the claim that children’s mathematical problem-solving performance depends on context. Do you feel that these findings can also be applied to other academic areas? Provide a specific example of how a classroom teacher might use this research to facilitate learning in the classroom. 

  9. ECE 353 ASH COURSE TUTORIAL ECE 353 Week 5 Journal Course Reflection • Course Reflection. In a one- to two-page journal entry, reflect on your experience in ECE353. Which components of the course have influenced your thinking the most in regard to cognitive development? Identify one theory that had the most profound impact on your thinking (either positively or negatively) and describe why. What effect will this have on your classroom instruction?
