- Game stage: play complex roles n adjust their behaviour to conform those expectations.
Socialization n Personality: Jean Piaget
Divide the dvelopment of thinking (or cognitive) skills during childhood in stages:
-from simple (broad/mental filings systems) to complex, abstract thought refined discrimination(tell the difference)[CD's in order]
-a result of biologikl growth n adaptation = balancing of:
- * Assimilation: incorporate new experiences into new schema.
- *Accomodation: no previous schema, dvelop new schema to deal with totally new experience [drive]
Jean Piaget: Develpmental Stages
- 1.Sensorimotor (0-2yrs)
- - learn bout the world throw senses n biofeeback
- - gradual undrstanding bout connection btwn body n mind

- 2.Preoperational (2-7yrs)
