Transcript of Early Adolescence (6th Grade: 11 yearl olds)

An insight to early adolescent's physical, emotional, cognitive, and social development Early Adolescence (6th grade: 11 year olds) Physical Development Emotional Development Cognitive Development Social Development In early adolescence the most obvious physical change is puberty. With the onset of puberty, young adolescents begin having physical and biological changes to their bodies. There are also systematic changes of the body and brain and age-related changes in motor skills and health behaviors. According to Erik Erikson’s Theory of Psychosocial Development, between the ages of 10-20, the stage is Identity vs. Role Confusion. Erikson’s theory states that young people actively engage in soul searching related to who they are, and what they believe in, and where they are going. At this age they begin to form intimate or close relationships and are willing to make the sacrifices and compromises that such relationships require. Cognitive development- At the ages 11 or 12, according to Piaget’s stages of Cognitive Development, early adolescents are beginning the Formal Operations Stage. During the formal operations stage, children become capable of thinking and reasoning about things that have little or no basis in physical reality. Early adolescents begin to think logically about abstract concepts, hypothetical ideas, and statements that contradict what they know to be true in the real world. Theoretical perspectives that focus on major transformations to the underlying structures of thinking over the course of development. In early adolescence (ages 10-14) children do self-evaluations on themselves on perceptions of appearance and popularity, and boys and girls tend to think of themselves as being somewhat less attractive once they reach adolescence. With their new perception of themselves often comes a drop is self –esteem. During this time period early adolescent's are more apt to behave in ways that their society will view favorably. Activity: Students could watch this video a few times, and after watching the video, the teacher could replay the video and have the students get out of their seats and dance if they felt comfortable. This also gives students ideas for remembering information. Activity: The teacher could have students write in their journals about how they felt if they have ever lost a loved one or how they would feel if they were to lose a loved one. Activity: The teacher could have students do a worksheet with a picture of a skeleton that children must label the different parts of the body. After they complete what they know, the teacher could pass out a worksheet that has the parts of the skeleton labeled for students to reference. Activity: The teacher will have the class do a skeleton match cutout ( memory game with matching names of bones with proper names) and she could call on volunteers to help her put the skeleton together without using any notes. This will help students socially by having to work together as a team to label the entire skeleton.
