In the YouTube video, "Building Blocks" by Shannon Schwartz, he shows his son Duncan playing with blocks. By observing Duncan, he uses biosocial, cognitive, and psychosocial domains; within these domains he shows developments such as large and small motor development, language, and emotion. These types of developments of young Duncan can be found in the book " The Developing Person Through Childhood and Adolescence, Ninth Edition" by Kathleen Stassen Berger. By my observations, I will be explaining how Duncan uses these abilities as he interacts with his blocks throughout this essay. Duncan is stacking his blocks on top of each other; he also uses his knees to bend down and pick up his blocks one by one with his hands. As well when Duncan …show more content…
When Duncan used his hands to grab the blocks he is using his fine motor skills, which are the "physical abilities involving small body movements, especially hands and fingers"(Berger, 2014, p.146). As he is moving and walking around to pick up his blocks; Duncan is using his gross motor skills. Gross motor skills are the "physical abilities to move some part of the body movement, such as walking and jumping"(Beger, 2014, p.145). According to the "Age Norms (in Months) for Gross Motor Skills" infants between 3-15 months can sit, held steady, sit unsupported, pull to stand, stand alone, walk well, and walk backward (Berger, 2014, p.147). In the video, Duncan is stacking the blocks. They fall after the first time and then he continues stacking them. When Duncan is about to grab a block his fathers says the color of it. When it comes to the next color block, he says yellow when reaching out for the blue block but he then he corrects himself and says blue. He only says one word to indicate the next color block. This is an example of a Holophrase, "a single word that expresses an entire thought"(Berger, 2014, p.179). By my observation, Duncan could be about
The side bases will then interlock their arms by grabbing their own left wrist with their hand and their partner’s wrist with the other hand. Then connect the thumbs under the square formed with their arms and hands so the basket does not break under the flyers foot. The square formed by the bases is called the “basket”. The bases should not be stiff; it should be able to have movement. The back should have their hands on the flyers waist to help them onto the basket and the front should be ready to help guide the flyer once they enter the
He had to leave the yellow paper outside that he gather for job So he was all in frantic because the paper was “so called important” and he went out onto the ledge to get the yellow paper. When he got out there on the ledge he was he turned into some robot. He is moving slowly, "Right foot, left foot, right foot, left," and he is "shuffling" trying to not fall and keep him concentrating on his task to get the yellow paper. The he kept from falling he kept "his chest, stomach, and face pressed against the rough, cold brick.
All of the theoretical frameworks of child development appear in Curious George. Behaviorism and social learning being the most prominent theory and psychodynamic being the theory that is most lacking. The development of a preschooler is complex and involves many factors including
After viewing Episode 2 “The Story We Tell” and reading over the Ten Things Everyone Should Know about Race, I came to realized one main point of the video and article caused me to question what I believed about race. Growing up I was only taught about significant historical events involving race but never about race specifically. Thus, the idea that “race and freedom were born together” sparked interest in my mind. Through watching the video, I learned that while American was primarily founded on the fact that “All men are created equal” it never truly defines what being a “man” entails. The video goes on in saying that in regards to the Declaration of Independence, slaves were not necessarily considered “men”.
Introduction Developmental psychology makes an attempt to comprehend the types and sources of advancement in children’s cognitive, social, and language acquisition skills. The pioneering work done by early child development theorists has had a significant influence on the field of psychology as we know it today. The child development theories put forward by both Jean Piaget and Erik Erikson have had substantial impacts on contemporary child psychology, early childhood education, and play therapy. In this essay, I aim to highlight the contribution of these two theorists in their study of various developmental stages, the differences and similarities in their theories, and their contributions to the theory and practice of play therapy.
Around fifteen minutes, the child I was observing got out legos,took them to the carpeted area and then started to play with them. He also invited others play to with them. This behavior shows initiative. He wants to be friendly and show he can do things. This behavior is congruent with Erikson's, initiative v guilt stage of development.
Physical Development Watson (2012) defines physical development as the process that starts in human infancy and continues into late adolescent concentrating on fine and gross motor development. Fine motor development involves more finely tuned movements such as grasping, building bricks and gross motor development involves larger movements such as walking, climbing, climbing stairs and riding bicycles. In the movie “Yours, Mine and Ours”, when analysing Ethan Beardsley who is four years old, the youngest child of Frank Beardsley; a single father of eight children, Ethan’s fine motor development such as when he was using a chalk when he and Helen North’s youngest were scribbling on Frank’s “Operation Light House” board, he grasped the chalk with ease as the chalk was big. This proves he has acquired the fine motor skill of grasping.
Sensation and perception are two very different things, that when used together help our brains string together a reality. Sensation is the use of our physical stimuli such as our nose, eyes, ears, and touch. This is where our perception comes in to use these tools to select, organize, and interrupt this information. In the Ted Talk video he states “your perception is not always reality”, which can be a hard concept to grasp and raises a lot of questions. I know people come from all walks of life and backgrounds and have seen different things, and know different things to be true, but how differently do others see the world from me?
The video "It's All About Culture" video show how company culture in a few different organizations can shape how people within the organization act and interact with one another. The Oakley Australia corporate culture is very much in line what the brand and lifestyle the brand is associated with. The culture is very laid back and seems pretty easy going. On the other hand, the video showed what was a banking or finance company where things are drastically different. Each culture is built around what the company does or the service and/or products they provide.

They develop simple skills such as walking, running, and jumping and thereafter develop complex skills such as skipping, long jump, galloping and so on. Initially, children are introduced to simple shapes then to silhouettes, to jigsaw puzzles and eventually to abstract shapes united by a concept (Daniels, Lauder & Porter, 2013).
Introduction: In this assignment I will apply development theory to real life scenarios. Dr. Berger an author and professor at the City University of New York states, “A developmental theory is a systematic statement of general principals that provide a framework for understanding how and why people change as they grow older.” Therefore, I will be analyzing and applying real life scenarios to the life of my son Christopher Ramirez and explain how his development is associated with very specific theories or a theorist. This developmental theory will be applied to all four age ranges which are: the first two years (0-2), the play years (2-6), the school years (7-11), and the adolescence years (11-18).
Piaget developed a stage theory of intellectual development that included four distinct stages: the sensorimotor stage, from birth to age 2; the preoperational stage, from age 2 to about age 7; the concrete operational stage, from age 7 to 11; and the formal operational stage, which begins in adolescence and spans into adulthood. He believed that there were four necessary ingredients for cognitive development which included: “maturation of the nervous system, experiences gained through interaction with physical world, social environment, and child’s active participation in adapting to environment & constructing knowledge from experience.” (Sullivan, 2014, Slide 3) The sensorimotor stage occurs between birth and age 2. Infants and toddlers acquire knowledge through sensory experiences and handling objects.
The reason for this is that ‘wrong’ is like pain, alerting the individual to the need for intervention or correction. Like pain, being ‘wrong’ indicates a necessity for an appropriate ‘cure’. Learning is the continuum of two poles, which Piaget (18) and other child experts have pointed out, is often related to a transition from concrete to abstract thinking and proceeds through trial - and - error method, rather than through a child instantly knowing what is ‘right’. The child, who developmentally, has not learned how to look at a problem from various viewpoints, is unlikely to have ready useful referents internalised in his mental schema to make him ready for instant ‘right’ comprehension; a comprehension based very often on teacher expectations,
