Theoretical Perspective Reflection, English homework help

In Chapter 3, you were presented with four language acquisition

theories: behaviorist, active construction of a grammar, connectionist,

and social interaction theories. For this discussion, you will first

select one of the theories and explain its main components in a graphic

organizer. The recommended website, Holt Interactive Graphic Organizers,

offers digital graphic organizers to help you with the creation of your

graphic organizer, or you can use the graphs/charts feature in

Microsoft Word. You will then compare and contrast your chosen theory

with the other theories listed above, highlighting the major

similarities and differences. PICK ONE OF THESE theories: behaviorist, active construction of a grammar, connectionist, and social interaction theories

The graphic organizer you create for the theory you choose should include:

  • The main theorist associated with the theory
  • A summary of what the theory states
  • Evidence supporting the theory
  • Evidence against the theory

In your compare/contrast analysis of the theory, include the following:

  • Similarities to other theories
  • Differences from other theories

Refer to Chapter 3 of the text, additional resources, and your own

insights. Remember that your graphic organizer needs to contain an APA

citation for any source used, including the textbook. Your discussion

post title should be the same as your chosen theory. The body of your

post should consist of your compare/contrast analysis.
