Compare and Contrast – Cognitive Theorists
Jean Piaget and Lev Vygotsky were two influential theorists during the 20th century – each with a unique spin on how children best learn. In your essay this week:
- Describe what did each theorist thought
- Compare and contrast their theories on research
- Explain which theorist you think best explained cognitive development in children and why you come to this decision
- Explain why you feel this way based on your own life experiences
Your essay should be at least 500 words in length and should be presented in APA format, including a title page, in-text citations, a running header, page numbers, double spacing, and a reference page. Your assignment should use terms/references directly from the chapter, and all extra outside research must be properly cited.
