Each of these stages has effected how teachers approach teaching in my experience as a student. In the sensory motor stage we use our eyes, hands, and often mouth to experience the environment.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.
