Create an observational checklist of characteristics of the development of higher order thinking and symbol usage for a specific age band (infant, toddler, preschooler, kindergartner, primary grade student). In addition to the assigned readings for this module, utilize the GCU eLibrary for a minimum of three peer-reviewed articles in support of your content.
I would like to have a chart on a kindergartener. Symbolssignify objects-of-knowledge. Symbols help children to remember and to identify things in their surroundings
I want development progression
This is my rubric!High Order Thinking Checklist
I think its academics
This is due tomorrow.
Mental representations are the result of a child using sense-memory to visualize something they cannot see based on sensory cues. Imagination, creativity and problem solving play a large role in this. The ability to recall images of things being described show efficacy in development and is essential in learning things related to symbols and imagery. For example, when a child hears “the letter ‘F’,” they should visualize the symbol “F.’” Moreover, when hearing the sound and “F” makes, the same symbol should be mentally represented. In a more advanced example; early literacy involves the relationship between three things: the symbolic representation of letters together making the word, the symbolic representation of the object and the meaning of the word (function.) Take a chair. When talking about a chair to an early reader, the mental representation should be a four legged piece of furniture you sit on, because that is the function of a chair. When a child sees the symbols “c-h-a-i-r” the same mental representation should occur, because both describe the same object while being presented two different ways. Oppositely, when a child sees a chair (be it a picture or an actual chair) the mental representation should be the letters “c-h-a-i-r,” because once the word is learned, it instinctively correlates to the image.

Ok thank you! I will be checking today
I am in New York City what time do you need this. I also asked you if you needed a matrix or chart set up because I am starting this project. When you say check list do you want me to actually check off the symbols that are used for higher order thinking. It is now 10:38 am in New York City.
I need a chart I want you to insert the symbols used for higher order thinking if possible. I need this by 5:00 p.m.
I am in Atlanta Ga.

Thank you this is a wonderful job! I will be calling on you for future assignments
You forgot to give me a rating that is how I get credit.
