What Does Language Acquisition Look Like?

  

Review the theories and theorists presented in this module’s Learning Resources, specifically the work of Piaget, Vygotsky, Skinner, and Chomsky. Then, view the videos Born to Talk: Birth to 3 Months (Siren Films, n.d.-a) and The Birth of a Word (Roy, 2011). Consider how the parent/child interactions presented in each video illustrate key findings in language acquisition and developmental theories.

Post the following: Describe at least two at least two ways the parents in the video Born to Talk: Birth to 3 Months elicited communicative reactions from their infants. Explain how each of these interactions mirrored theoretical principles from the work of Piaget, Vygotsky, Skinner, and/or Chomsky.
