25 Sep 2013 - Bruner's CPA Theory

Bruner's theory on Concrete-pictorial-abstract (CPA) was emphasized in this lesson. I truly agree that the CPA is an effective instructional approach to allow children to explore by using concrete materials. When the child is able to grasp the concept using tools/materials, the educator can then introduces pictorial cues (eg. drawings, graphs) and further enhance the concept by using symbolic representation.
