What are your ideas so far?

I've got some notes I can look at for Piaget so I can possibly offer some suggestions, but it would be good to hear your initial ideas first.

For Ao1, I'd describe each of his 4 stages in some detail, state that his approach is based on the idea that each child learns best independently through discovery learning and also that he believed it was important for a child to be biologically ready before they advanced to the next stage.

Piaget's theory of development was based on observation of his own children. As his children were from a wealthy swiss doctor -there are not typical. particularly stage four of his theory, formal operational, it is not a stage most children reach at 11. formation of abstract ideas is not common at such an age. His ideas are famous as as before this the vicotorian idea was that children thought and felt like adults and were treated as 'little adults' was held. Piaget theory changed this view - but important to learn the flaws to theory as well !
