Exploring lifespan development

1. Submit one discussion question week. For week, submit one thoughtful question for the class to discuss. What is a thoughtful question? Thoughtful questions generate discussion and provoke thought. Focus on generating a question that sparks discussion/conversation about an issue/debate, a comparison/contrast between different perspectives, how we might brainstorm to solve a methodological issue, other ways to explain the data or go about researching a question; these kinds of questions will lead to a productive and thought provoking class discussion rather than clarification kinds of questions or “Does anyone know…” kinds of questions. Do notsubmit a question that focuses on clarification or “Does anyone know…” as your discussion question. It is okay to tack these kinds of questions on to your submission of the discussion question, but these kinds of questions should be in addition to your thought provoking discussion question. The discussion question is due bySunday at midnight. This will allow your classmates to have time to read the question (please take a few minutes to read all of the questions posted by your classmates) and respond to them. Submit the questions via Blackboard.

The discussion question will be graded on a 2-point scale:

2 points = discussion question meets the criteria listed above (generates discussion, provokes thought) and is submitted on time

1 point = discussion question only partially meets the requirements

0 points = discussion question does not meet the requirements, or no discussion question was submitted

2. After completing the readings, please write a 1-page reflection paper addressing the following questions:

1.Which theory or theories take a stance similar to your own?

2.If you had to choose a theory that best represents your own view of development, would you choose a single theory or would you select certain components of several theories? Explain why.

3.What aspects of your chosen theory (or theories) make it more attractive than the others?
