i need anyone to check my Assignment.
Iam happy to hear your advice friends.

This is my assignment, its about How
"Children Learn Language" ???

Piaget
Piaget is a famous Swiss psychologist who developed theories about child development by observing his own children. His views on cognitive development gained much attention during the 1960 and 1970’s. His theory is based on the Cognitive Development.

Piaget found that children do not passively imitate adults. They actively think by themselves with their own knowledge and through activity and direct experience by interacting with objects.

He is based on learners passing through four stages of development. In each stage children differ by their ages and thinking. Cognitive development theory contents that the children are active, they learn by object, thinking, and talking to themselves.
Piaget believes that children speech and thought egocentric.

Skinner
Skinner is an American theorist. He studied the Behaviousim theory, which is kind of conditioning called operant. He viewed the child as a blank slate at birth, and filled by teachers and parents from the environment.

He believes that children need supporting from parent or teachers. They should encourage the positive behavior of the child. According to Trawic-Smith, “if children’s desirable behaviours are rewarded systematically by adults, they are more likely to perform those behaviors”.

The main points of Skinner’s classroom management based on many ways of teaching which are positive reinforcement, punishment, time out and extinction. Teachers should use these to help the child to be propriet behaviourst. Skinner found that children are passive so students should learn by observed and measured.

Vygotsky
Vygotsky was Russian theorist. His theory is Social Cultural theory of the child development. Vygotsky suggest that his theories based on social interaction, language and culture.
Vygotsky believes that children learn independently by using knowledge information, So found that development cannot be separated from the social context. Furthermore, Vygotsky discovered that Zone of Proximal Development means that’s the gap between what the child an do alone and what he can do with a little bit of help.
Vygotsky suggest that scaffolding can help the children and give them some of competition with peers and adults.

Comparison of theories organizer

Language focus
In this section I will compare the three theories of first language acquisition. Behaviourist language learning based on children learning by imitation, matching and feedback, they pick out the language that they hear from the adults and correct themselves. According to Lightbown and Spada, “children often ignore the correction, continuing to use their own ways of saying things”(16).

Process of acquisition

Whereas Innatist’s language develops children acquire language called metal acquisition. Children are biological programmed with language in their mind. According to Lightbown and Spada,” children are biologically programmed for language and that language develops in the child in just the same way that other biological functions develop”(15). In contrast, Interactionist believe that children learn threw interaction with adults. Innatists believe that children learn by scaffolding. This used for giving the children prompt and clues of solving problems.

Role of environment

Behaviorist theory is similar to Interactionist for some way, insofar as they both believe that environment is important filled in language for different way. Whereas Innatists believes that children learn language by matching and hearing from the environment.

Role of child

Innatist is based on the belief that child is born with something in his mind, while Behaviorists believe that children are a blank slate and filled by the environment and they learn by positive reinforcement, feedback and habit formation. Interactionist viewed that children learn language from the culture around him.

Implications of Teaching

The Behaviourst approach suggests that the classroom the desk should be in rows so children can watch teacher. In Constructivist class’s children should interact with materials and build their own knowledge. Materials should set up in different work or discovery areas (science, math’s areas). On the other hand, Social-constructivism classrooms desks grouped in pairs to facilitate peers helping each other.

From a Behaviourist perspective teachers would assess the students by giving tasks in separate skill areas e.g. spelling, grammar, reading and tests. In addition, children work individually. However the Social-constructivism assess pair and group work that children have completed cooperatively. Whereas in a constructivist teacher assess children by finding the correct solution to the problem. According to Biellier and Snowman “assess the level and the type of the thinking of each child in you class”(73).

From a Behaviourist perspective teachers would assess by tasks like copying and filling gaps that emphasize drill and repetition because Social-constructivist says that child is a blank slate. Therefore, social-constructivist emphasizes cooperative learning by peer work and interacting with others.

Teacher can teach in many ways. So in a Social-constructivist teachers guide the children’s learning, carefully tailoring intervention to each child by Zone of Proximal Development which is an arrange of class that gives the child a little bit of help. However the Constructivist approach suggests the teacher to set up discovery areas with specific materials that children can work on. On the other hand, Behaviourist use direct teaching that gives children all the answers.

Conclusion
The main idea of this assignment is to learn about the three theorist of Cognitive and language development. In fact to be aware how children acquire their fist language.
Hi moon I’ve got a bit of time so I’ll try to help you with some adjustments

Ok first off there are a number of ideas that you managed to communicate quite effectively in this assignment. So before I get down to correcting your grammar there are a few organisational points I would like to go over.

You have made a number of divisions starting with Language focus and moving all the way down to Implications of Teaching. The main problem here for me as the reader was that I could not follow the methodologies you were discussing:

Innatist’s
Interactionist
Behaviourists
Social-constructivist
Constructivist

These groups were not very clear and I could not understand who was who! Perhaps you could give a firm definition of each before you begin to refer to them in the sub-sections?

This concept of introducing groups/references/ideas clearly before using them in arguments will enable readers without specialist knowledge to follow. Otherwise we are a little lost. Of course if the assignment is aimed at people who are already familiar with the terms it isn’t necessary.

That was my main difficulty. Also what was the object of the assignment?

Ok corrections (I don’t know much about the subject matter so I can’t correct the technical terms) … I haven't highlighted the corrections but I've put the notes in brackets --> ( )

Piaget is a famous Swiss psychologist who developed theories about child development by observing his own children. His views on cognitive development gained much attention during the 1960 and 1970’s. His theory is based on the Cognitive Development.

Piaget found that children do not passively imitate adults. They actively think by themselves with their own knowledge; through activity and direct experience from interacting with objects.

His theories are based on the principle that learners pass through four stages of development. In each stage children differ by their ages and thinking. Cognitive development theory contents that the children are active, they learn by interaction with objects, thinking, and talking to themselves.

Piaget believes that children speech and thought egocentric. (I cannot understand this sentence!). Did you mean ‘Piaget believes that children are egocentric in speech and thought’?

Skinner
Skinner is an American theorist. He studied the Behaviourism theory, which is kind of conditioning called operant. He viewed the child as a blank slate at birth, which is filled by teachers and parents in the child’s environment.

He believes that children need support from parent or teachers. They should encourage the positive behaviour of the child. According to Trawic-Smith, “if children’s desirable behaviours are rewarded systematically by adults, they are more likely to perform those behaviours”.

The points of Skinner’s classroom management are based on many ways of teaching which are: positive reinforcement, punishment, time out and extinction (Extinction!!! The poor kids!!!). Teachers should use these to help the child to behave properly. Skinner found that children are passive so students should learn by observed and measured. (This last sentence was too difficult for me)

Vygotsky
Vygotsky was Russian theorist. His theory is Social Cultural theory of the child development. Vygotsky’s theories are based on social interaction, language and culture.
Vygotsky believes that children learn independently by using knowledge information. So he found that development cannot be separated from the social context. Furthermore, Vygotsky discovered that Zone of Proximal Development means that there is a gap between what the child can do alone and what he can do with a little bit of help (Did I get that right?).

Vygotsky suggests that scaffolding can help the children and give them some of competition with peers and adults. (Do you mean that scaffolding will allow children to be able to act independently and therefore compete with peers and adults?)

Ok, I’m stopping there for now… I’m dead tired!
Thanx peter very much.
