Aspects of Theories.
Below the table, complete the following:
Describe the theoretical model that you connect with the most. Explain your thinking.
Describe the theoretical model that you connect with the least. Explain your thinking.
Choose any one of the theories (whether you connected with it or not). Describe a real-life example for this theory of how you have seen it in action. For example, if you have seen a teacher provide scaffolding, explain what you saw and how it aligns with Vygotsky.
After reading Chapters 3 and 6 in your textbook and viewing the ECE 101 Theorist Gallery Tour shared above, it is likely that you still have some questions about these theorists and the key principles of their theories. This discussion will give you the opportunity to share the questions you still have. You will also discuss how the theorists’ ideas align with your current beliefs about how children learn, grow, and develop. This will help as you work to understand who you are as an early childhood educator.
First, copy and paste the chart you see below into your discussion response. For each theorist, list at least one question you still have about the theorist’s ideas.
