  Part  3:  Write-­‐up  –  Double-­‐spaced     Analysis  and  Application   Introduction     In  the  first  paragraph,  provide  a  summary  of  the  various  grade  levels  that  you  observed.   Your  name  Page  #    

This  information  will  help  frame  the  rest  of  the  write-­‐up.  At  the  end  of  the  first  paragraph,  list  the   organization.  For  instance,  you  might  say  something  like,  “this  write-­‐up  will  be  divided  into  three   parts:  elementary,  middle  school,  and  high  school.  In  each  section  the  theoretical  applications  will   be  discussed  and  illustrated  with  specific  examples  from  the  observations.  A  conclusion  will  draw   together  the  differences  between  students  at  different  levels  of  development.”   Elementary     During  the  observations,  in  light  of  Piaget’s  theory  it  was  noted  that  Kindergarteners  were  

unable  to  distinguish  between  …  For  example,  it  was  observed  that  two  of  the  5-­‐year  old  students   …  continue  your  application  of  the  theory  or  concept.   Middle  School     Observations  at  the  middle  school  made  it  clear  that  …  give  your  examples  and  tie  them  to  

a  theory.  Be  sure  to  include  the  name  of  the  theorist.   High  School     High  school  students  in  these  observations  showed  …  give  your  examples  and  tie  them  to  a  

theory.  Again,  don’t  forget  to  name  the  theorist/theory.   Comparisons  Across  Grade  Levels     It  was  interesting  to  see  the  differences  in  the  physical  development  of  the  students  across  

grade  levels.  For  instance,  Kindergarteners  were  less  than  three  feet  tall  and  high  school  students   were  as  tall  as  six  feet.  Continue  giving  examples  that  compare  students  in  all  four  of  the    

  developmental  domains.  Use  the  guiding  questions  to  be  thorough  in  this  section.   Continue  with  the  write-­‐up  from  all  nine  (9)  observations   No  more  than  1  page  each         References   Page  #
