This is a resource package for teaching the New BTEC HSC Level 3, Unit 1 Human Growth and Development through Life Stages, A2 Intellectual Development and covers all that’s on the spec. It has a 17 page booklet you can add to or alter, which has presentation note pages for the 4 PowerPoints, activities and homework tasks so it’s pretty engaging and the student can print it of and refer to sections themselves for revision. There is an A2 exam paper and easy-to-use mark scheme to check progress on this section too.
The content includes:-
PowerPoint introduction > In infancy and early childhood there is rapid growth in intellectual and language skills:
PowerPoint > Piaget’s model of how children’s logic and reasoning develops – stages of cognitive development, the development of schemas, his tests of conservation, egocentrism and how his model may explain children’s thoughts and actions
PowerPoint > Chomsky’s model in relation to how children acquire language – Language Acquisition Device (LAD), the concept of a critical period during which children may learn language, which may explain how children seem to instinctively gain language.
In early adulthood, thinking becomes realistic and pragmatic, with expert knowledge about, the practical aspects of life that permits judgement about important matters.
PowerPoint > The effects of age on the functions of memory:
• memory loss in later adulthood
