I believe that these principles are highly relevant to the teacher. Teachers plan their lessons based upon the level of cognitive and affective development of their students. Some curriculum content may not be appropriate to learners who have not reached a developmental stage that allows them to comprehend the material. In the area of science, for example, it is not appropriate to teach experimenting to primary age students because controlling and manipulating variables in an experiment requires attaining a level of development called "formal operations" by the psychologist Jean Piaget.
