Part II – Developmental Gaps
Respond to the following in 175 to 350 words:
Demonstrate the interdependence of physical, cognitive, and social development by imagining how a persons’ behavior would be impacted by a deficit. Create a scenario in which one area (physical, cognitive, social) is underdeveloped and describe the possible results. Focus on a specific stage of development (childhood or adolescence) and predict how a later stage (adolescence or adulthood) would be impacted by the lack of development of that area during an earlier stage (e.g., how a lack of cognitive development during childhood would affect the behavior of an adolescent).
Part III – Nature Versus Nurture
Using your own words, write 175 to 350 words describing the concept of “nature versus nurture.” Be sure to explain how nature, nurture, and both concepts are involved in development.
