To complete the entire assignment, you will be required to choose one project from each of the four sections outlined below.In other words, everyone will complete four small projects – one from each section.Please watch the Tegrity recording regarding the project.There is a forum in the Discussion Board for you to ask any questions you might still have.
Format:Each project should be at least two double-spaced pages in length with 1” margins.Two pages is a simply a minimum – it is fine to go over this guideline.I would rather you be thorough than stay within the two page guideline.You will need to provide background information from your text for each of the topics but be sure to use your own words!! For the “Special Topics” portion, you will need to use the textbook and another scholarly source as background information. Please use proper citations and quotations when appropriate.There is a handout under “Project” regarding APA format that will help you with this.In addition, you will need to reference both your text and the outside article in a reference list.
There are many ways to present your findings.One way that you might consider (and seems to work well) is to first provide background information regarding the particular type of development you are investigating, then describe your observations, and finally interpret them in terms of the theory or concept you are focusing on.Do not forget to define terms and concepts when providing background information.For example, do not assume that the reader (me) knows what depth perception is or anything about Piaget’s Theory of Cognitive Development.When reporting your observations, be sure to note which behaviors are an example of the term or concept.
