After reading Chapters 3 and 6 in your textbook and viewing the ECE 101 Theorist Gallery Tour shared above, it is likely that you still have some questions about these theorists and the key principles of their theories. This discussion will give you the opportunity to share the questions you still have. You will also discuss how the theorists’ ideas align with your current beliefs about how children learn, grow, and develop. This will help as you work to understand who you are as an early childhood educator

First, copy and paste the chart you see below into your discussion response. For each theorist, list at least one question you still have about the theorist’s ideas.

Guided Response: Read and respond to at least two of your peers’ posts. In your responses, share at least one connection between something they shared and something you shared in your own initial response. In addition, share a scholarly source in each response that your peer could use to find the answers to the questions he or she still has about the theorists. Explain why you feel the source would be beneficial for peer. Consider adding the scholarly sources you suggested for your peers to the Additional Resources tab of your Weebly site.
