Identify the most important features of a developmental theory.
1) Identify the most important features of a developmental theory. Describe an aspect of your own development (i.e., learning how to play a sport or musical instrument, or some other skill). How do you explain the development of your own ability? (You may cite natural inclination or formative experiences such as formal lessons or summer camps.) How do you predict how the ability will change or stay the same over time (i.e., did you get better at the skill over time? What may account for these changes)? How different developmental theories may account for your chosen ability.2) Identify three important issues addressed by developmental theories3) How is personality development explained using the frameworks of nature and nurture, continuity and discontinuity, and early and later experience? -consider each issue in explaining how personality may change from childhood to adulthood.4) How are Freud’s and Erikson’s theories similar? How do they differ? Apply each theory to understanding the impact of early deprivation in a child’s life. How does each theory account for the impact of early experience? How might this show later in life?5) Explain how genes are passed from generation to generation and produce variability in human development.6) Describe how cigarette smoking and alcohol and drug exposure in pregnancy affect prenatal development and child outcomes.7) Discuss the impact of different types of feeding practices during the first 2 years. What is your personal view on feeding practices?8) Describe classic and modern theories of motor development.9) Explain how the child’s problem-solving ability changes across Piaget’s six sensorimotor sub stages, including object permanence.10) Explain what infants might understand about numbers.
