After only a few days of school the child is showing signs of stress and feelings of inadequacy. Describe at least two specific strategies that a maturationist theorist would recommend to solve this classroom problem.

Suggested Responses: Students should describe strategies that reflect the premise that this child is simply less mature than others in the class and will catch up naturally over time. The buy a year approach - in which the child waits a year before entering kindergarten or spends an extra year at this grade level - might be mentioned. Other strategies which reduce strenuous academics or buy time for the child to mature might be described. Another appropriate strategy would be to place the child in a classroom of children who are more at the same developmental level as this child; this would be appropriate in the early weeks of the school year and would reflect sensitivity to maturational factors. A response that suggests intervention to correct academic deficiencies would NOT be appropriate, since maturationists would espouse more hands-off, wait-and-see solutions.
