What People are Saying About This

Sidney Werkman

"Because Piaget asked new questions--cognitive-organismic questions--the whole train of developmental research has been turned in a new direction. A rare treat is in store for the reader."

A resource accepted universally for teachers is the work of Jean Piaget (1896 - 1980). Piaget focused on development, not specifically on learning, and his work provides an understanding of child perception given their age and stage of development. Piaget proposed four discrete stages of development marked by cognitive differences: (a) sensorimotor, (b) preoperational, (c) concrete operational, and (d) formal operational. For example, a child will not be able to abstract or infer until the formal operational stage is underway—generally beginning in grades six or seven or even grade eight.
