Piaget's Genetic Approach to Reading and Language Development.
Vida, Louisa Kramer
Using Jean Piaget's theory of thinking as a structuring mechanism, this paper presents a theoretical framework for the development of remedial, corrective, and developmental reading programs geared toward teaching reading comprehension. The four stages of intellectual development that Piaget has proposed (sensorimotor, preoperational, concrete operational, and formal operations) are discussed in terms of appropriate teaching and learning activities that reading teachers should use to promote reading development that is synchronized to the child's biological potential. Appended materials list skills, reading materials, instructional activities, and vocabulary concepts that can be coordinated with Piaget's four stages of development. (RL)
