Stage TheoryThis week you are learning about Jean Piaget’s theory of stage development. Review the criteria for a stage theory of cognitive development on p. 20 of your text. Note that stage theorists believe that each stage must build on the previous stage, that they follow a stable order, and are believed to be universal across all cultures. Reflecting on your own development and your observations of the development of others, do you agree with stage development theory? Why or why not? Support your stance with your research and examples.
