Are acquired by children in all environments. Are acquired universally. Which of the following is not a biologically secondary ability according to Geary ? Are culturally dependent, reflecting the cognitive skills that are important in a particular culture. Do not have an evolutionary history but are built on biologically primary abilities. Children are not intrinsically motivated to exercise them and must often be pressured by adults to acquire these skills.
Tedious practice is not necessary to master biologically secondary abilities. All self-respecting developmentalists believe that development is A. According to Gottlieb a what is not a component of epigenesis? What did the findings of Fraga and colleagues reveal? As genetically identical individuals develop, their individual experiences can affect them at the cellular level.
When genetically dissimilar individuals develop, nothing can affect this experience. Genetically identical individuals and genetically dissimilar individuals will eventually develop the same.
A circular relationship of cellular development can occur throughout development. In the developmental systems approach, A.
Biological parents provide both gene and environment for child; passive effects decrease with age. Temperamental characteristics of child evoke responses from others; evocative effects remain constant with age.

Children seek out environments consistent with their genotypes; active effects increase with age. Children seek out environments consistent with their phenotypes; passive effects increase with age. What is the correct order of the three stages of neuronal development? The first stage of neuronal development is referred to as proliferation which is the production of new neurons through the process of cell division by mitosis. Ans: T 7. The process of synapse formation, or synaptogenesis, is slow and gradual during the early years of life when the brain is first becoming organized.
Synaptic pruning is the concept whereby the number of synapses per neuron is greatest between 4 and 8 months of life and decreases with age. Most developmental neuroscientists believe that brain development involves an extended process that is greatly influenced by postnatal experience. Difficulty Level: Medium 5. The neocortex, or cerebral cortex, is a multilayered sheet of neurons, only 8—10 millimeters thick that surrounds the rest of the brain.
Contemporary research indicates that new synaptic connections can be formed throughout life.
Children tend to recover from the effects of concussions faster than adolescents and adults do. Health — physical and mental is emphasised, as well as the importance of feelings and thinking and spiritual aspects. Learning is not compartmentalised, for everything links. Intrinsic motivation, resulting in child-initiated, self directed activity, is valued. Self- discipline is emphasised. There are specially receptive periods of learning at different stages of development. There is an inner life in the child, which emerges especially under favourable conditions.

The people both adults and children with whom the child interacts are of central importance. Quality education is about three things: the child, the context in which learning takes place, and the knowledge and understanding which the child develops and learns. A Froebelian principled approach to early childhood education in practice It is important that practitioners offer children what they need now.
For example, some children may need to be allowed the autonomy, to make choices and decisions and to use their skills and techniques to mix their own paints. While other children may not be ready to mix paints for themselves, and will just waste expensive resources if they are allowed to ladle paint everywhere, and splash water onto it, but they may be ready to learn how sand, clay and gravel behave when in contact with water.
They can learn about the properties of materials.

Another child may be ready to mix paints, but may need a great deal of practitioner support as they are in the early stages of learning how to do this. The practitioner must nurture the ideas, feelings, relationships and physical development and embodiment of children. Children need to be given help sensitively, in a way which will build their confidence, skills and autonomy. Children are self-motivated when they are encouraged to be so and their intrinsic motivation to learn is not crushed, but nurtured by practitioners that have an understanding of them. Children are encouraged to develop self-discipline.

For one-semester undergraduate courses in cognitive development, developmental psychology, and child development. Also appropriate for use in graduate development seminars. This book offers a unified account of the major research findings and theories on the development of children's thinking from infancy to adolescence; and also considers their practical implications. It examines the change processes through which development occurs, as well as the nature of the changes in language, perception, memory, conceptual understanding, and problem-solving that mark cognitive development.
Eight central themes presented in the first chapter integrate and unify the presentation. Broadens students knowledge with the most current findings on the connection between drain development and cognitive development.
Provides students with a complete analysis of common theories so that they can evaluate thinking from different perspectives. Provides students with techniques for eliciting accurate recollection of events from children, methods for diagnosing perceptual problems. Provides students with a careful examination of how children learn and techniques for improving reading, writing and mathematical skills.
