HN377 Unit 5 DISCUSSION: Language: A Theoretical Approach

A co-worker consults with you about a problem that one of her client’s children is having in school. She explains that Katy, who is 22-months-old, is not learning language as quickly as her parents think she should. Your co-worker then explains that each night Katy and her mother sit in bed and read a book together. Katy can say the name of different items in the pictures, but seems to forget their names quickly. It seems that she is easily distracted. Katy’s mother wants to understand better why Katy is not remembering all of the words but your co-worker does not know. She has called you for an explanation.

1. Using the cognitive development model of your choice (Piaget, Vygotsky, or Information Processing), explain how children learn new information like the items in the stories that Katy and her mother read nightly.

2. What are some strategies that Katy’s mother can use to help Katy remember more words from the stories?

You must proofread your paper. But do not strictly rely on your computer’s spell-checker and grammar-checker; failure to do so indicates a lack of effort on your part and you can expect your grade to suffer accordingly. Papers with numerous misspelled words and grammatical mistakes will be penalized. Read over your paper – in silence and then aloud – before handing it in and make corrections as necessary. Often it is advantageous to have a friend proofread your paper for obvious errors. Handwritten corrections are preferable to uncorrected mistakes. Use a standard 10 to 12 point (10 to 12 characters per inch) typeface. Smaller or compressed type and papers with small margins or single-spacing are hard to read. It is better to let your essay run over the recommended number of pages than to try to compress it into fewer pages. Likewise, large type, large margins, large indentations, triple-spacing, increased leading (space between lines), increased kerning (space between letters), and any other such attempts at “padding” to increase the length of a paper are unacceptable, wasteful of trees, and will not fool your professor. The paper must be neatly formatted, double-spaced with a one-inch margin on the top, bottom, and sides of each page. When submitting hard copy, be sure to use white paper and print out using dark ink. If it is hard to read your essay, it will also be hard to follow your argument.
