Question and answer
What are the basic principles behind this thought on language development?
Language development is a process starting early in human life. Infants start without language, yet by 4 months of age, babies can discriminate speech sounds and engage in babbling. [ Some research has shown that the earliest learning begins in utero when the fetus starts to recognize the sounds and speech patterns of its mother's voice. Usually, productive language is considered to begin with a
stage of preverbal communication in which infants use gestures and vocalizations to make their intents known to others. According to a general principle of development, new forms then take over old functions, so that children learn words to express the same communicative functions which they had already expressed by preverbal means. ]

1.Discuss how a schema is related to constructionist theory or reconstruction

Most of these methods rely on some form of guided discovery where the teacher avoids most direct instruction and attempts to lead the student through questions and activities to discover, discuss, appreciate, and verbalize the new knowledge. ] User: Discuss how a schema is related to constructionist theory or reconstruction Weegy: Answer: This theoretical framework holds that learning always builds upon knowledge that a student already knows; this prior knowledge is called a schema.

According to Piaget's theory of cognitive development, learners must construct their own knowledge. They build their knowledge through experience.
