Many commonsense beliefs relate to child development, such as “spare the rod and spoil the child,” or the belief that age-graded schools enhance learning. Write 2-3 beliefs about child development you have heard. For each one, write whether you think it comes from “traditional knowledge,” “experiential knowledge,” or some combination of both. For each one, also write how you might conduct systematic observations to determine if these beliefs are scientific knowledge.
