Below is the instruction for the two questions. Each question has its own reading material. I have uploaded the reading material for each question below (Reading Material Q1 is for Question 1, Reading Material Q2 is for Question 2)
Below is Question 1 (Q1):
Considering the many theoretical alternatives to the traditional, long-standing models, how do you think the newer theories meet a need in understanding child development and parenting?
Reflect upon the additional resources about theoretical perspectives (Feminist, Gilligan’s Stages of Moral Development, Intersectionality, Racism framework).
What theory makes the most sense to you or was the most interesting?
Briefly explain the theory as part of your explanation
How can you relate your own experience or that of someone close to you to one of these theories?
Share an example from either the child or parent perspective.
- Below is Question 2 (Q2):
- The short answer assessment portion of each module will incorporate all of the pieces you have worked with throughout the previous sections. You will be expected to use information from our course resources in order to answer the questions presented here. You are discouraged from simply Googling the prompts as you may be directed to information that is off-topic, without appropriate context, or out-of-date. Your first resources should be our course resources!
These questions will require more advanced thinking and consideration to earn full credit. Make sure to support your answers with detail, data and facts presented in the resources, along with ties to cultural and societal influences. You should also include theoretical perspectives as appropriate. You should NOT quote anything directly from any resources. Instead, you should paraphrase using your own words, and cite the source appropriately (APA citation preferred, but other citation methods will be accepted). When paraphrasing, think about how you would explain the concept or idea to a classmate or parent. Show me through your writing that you understand the ideas, not just that you can locate the concept in a reading.
