Childhood development is extremely relevant to teachers and is typically a course in their training. Such knowledge informs teachers of the appropriateness of particular content in the curriculum for different developmental levels. For example, doing experiments in science is not appropriate for primary children because their brains have not developed the sophistication to understand controlling variables. Fractions are not taught in K-2 for the same reason. The French psychologist Jean Piaget was the most important figure to work out a theory of childhood development.  Michael Bentley, Expert Panelist
