Child Development Theorists That Help Us Teach


Bowlby, Skinner, and Dr. Spock all have major contributions to child development theories we use today. We found a great cheat sheet video we can use when parent conferencing or simply providing a great scientific foundation for why we teach the way we do in our classrooms.

Dr. Spock has the #2 Best selling book globally!

We like to always be ready to have an answer next time anyone make the comment that all we do is play all day.

We know, if anyone really knew how hard teachers actually worked they wouldn't call it play at all.

For all you hard working teachers out there...
We understand.

I am not a fan of Skinner, not at all. The theorists I like best are Piaget, Montessori, Dewey, Maslow, and especially Alfie Kohn who published Punished by Rewards in 1993.

By the way, the link to the video you provided didn't work on my computer
