1. Piaget: Four stages to development, sensorimotor, preoperational, concreate operational stage, formal operation stage.

1.1. Piaget's Model: Not fixed on any individual and instead they tend to overlap. Ex, High school students display a range of intellectual development.

1.1.1. Student's may be in one stage of intellectual capacity with Math, but may not be in that same stage with English.

2. Vygotsky: Focuses on the "zone of proximal development and on patterns of social interaction."

2.1. Zone of proximal development: the difference between the intellectual level of a child and the level they can reach if outside influences occur.

2.1.1. According to Vygotsky, if a child doesn't reach a certain level of intellect, the child was not developmentally ready.

3. Piagetian: using Piaget's theory, decision making would be based on age appropriateness and individual appropriateness.

4. Using Vygotsky's method, first determine child's zone of proximal development which helps aid if the subject you introduce will be worthwhile or not.
