Exam 3 review Cognitive Development: Sociocultural theories Vygotsky’s theory - children = social beings, intertwined with other people who are eager to help them gain skills and understanding - children are intent on participation in activities that happen to be prevalent in their local setting - continuous, quantitative changes - children = social beings, shaped by and shaping their cultural contexts - language and thought integrated - thought is internalized speech - thought originates in large part in statements that parents and other adults make to children - at first, childs behavior is controlled by other peoples statements - then behavior is controlled by their own private speech – children develop their self-regulation and problem-solving abilities by telling themselves aloud what to do, much as their parents did in the first stage - transition between second and third stages includes whispers or silent lip movements – speech goes underground and becomes thought - private speech most prevalent from 4 to 6 years but adults still use it
