Lifespan Paper: The purpose will be to evaluate the students knowledge of concepts, critical thinking abilities and writing skill. The papers must be at least three pages typed, double-spaced and in 12 pt. Times New Roman font. Again, I have a zero tolerance policy for plagiarism.
The book you will be pulling out information from is the seventh edition life-span development by john w santrock. ONLY THIS BOOK!!!!!
In the essay you will choose at least 5 but no more than 10 of the developmental milestones we’ve learned about to write your paper. You will talk about your experiences with each of the developmental milestones you choose and what it was like for you when you experienced them. For example, lets say you chose a combination of developmental milestones from chapter 6 and chapter 8 such as Goodness of fit and Learning to Attach which is chapter 6 and Regulating emotions, Moral Development and Gender Identity which is from chapter 8. You would write your three page essay sharing your experience with finding a goodness of fit and attaching as an infant, and then your experiences with regulating your emotions, developing your morality and discovering your gender identity as a child also. Lastly, every time you discuss a developmental milestone you will need to start out by providing some sort of definition for the term. You can paraphrase the definitions of the terms you choose or copy them from the book, just make sure to create a citation if you choose the latter and make sure the definitions are correct. Your Essay will be graded on criteria below:
