Unit 3 Summative: Article Analysis
Synopsis:
The article titled “Development of Intelligence: Current Research and Theories”
and written by Lisabeth F. DiLalla discusses the research, and range of theories on the
development of intelligence through analysing psychologists’ perspectives on children’s
development. The article highlights different methods that scientists/researchers utilize
to predict a child’s future IQ based on socioeconomic status, maternal nurturance, and
parenting as key factors. Furthermore, DiLalla provides research that proposes the
factors that can influence a child’s grades and behaviour by stating that a child’s traits
can be partially heritable from a parent, but can change over time with factors and
stimuli. This article explains to researchers and practitioners the concepts and factors
that have an interest in a child’s overall performance in school. Ultimately, DiLalla
provides research and arguments which can be used to better understand a child’s
performance in the class room and how he/she can be given a more personalized
learning environment that can help them reach their full academic potential.
