ORDER NOW FOR AN EXCELLENT PAPER FROM HEALTH CARE PAPER GURUS :Discussion:Ethological and Ecological Theories

Discussion 1

In Chapter One you learned about several human development theories, including psychoanalytic, cognitive, behavioral and social cognitive, ethological, and ecological theories. Many professionals take a holistic approach, but it is common to favor a particular theory. Which of the theories covered in this chapter do you believe is most valid? Explain your answer and support it with material from the text, real-life observations, and/or studies or outside reference material from a valid source.

DISCUSSION 2

You must choose one of two tracks for this assignment. Refer to the Tracks and Topics for the Final Project document and select a track and a topic within that track that you would like to focus your final project on. Choose your track and topic thoughtfully, as you will not be able to switch your track and topic once chosen. Don’t worry if you are not familiar with the tracks or topics at this point in the course; you will be learning much more about them throughout the term. Contact your instructor if you are having any trouble choosing your track.

You will use your selected track for Modules Two and Three as well. The track you choose determines the articles you will review to find a research gap and to inform your idea for a research design for your final project. You must use the same track for the entire course.

For this assignment, you will complete the “Article One” section of the literature worksheet and submit it to obtain instructor feedback. This assignment is graded pass/fail.

Here is an example of a completed literature worksheet and a Final Project Milestone One: Literature Worksheet: Article One introduction video to assist you in completing this assignment attach below

TEXTBOOK INFORMATION

SANTROCK: A Topical Approach to Life-Span Development
9th Edition

You must proofread your paper. But do not strictly rely on your computer’s spell-checker and grammar-checker; failure to do so indicates a lack of effort on your part and you can expect your grade to suffer accordingly. Papers with numerous misspelled words and grammatical mistakes will be penalized. Read over your paper – in silence and then aloud – before handing it in and make corrections as necessary. Often it is advantageous to have a friend proofread your paper for obvious errors. Handwritten corrections are preferable to uncorrected mistakes. Use a standard 10 to 12 point (10 to 12 characters per inch) typeface. Smaller or compressed type and papers with small margins or single-spacing are hard to read. It is better to let your essay run over the recommended number of pages than to try to compress it into fewer pages. Likewise, large type, large margins, large indentations, triple-spacing, increased leading (space between lines), increased kerning (space between letters), and any other such attempts at “padding” to increase the length of a paper are unacceptable, wasteful of trees, and will not fool your professor. The paper must be neatly formatted, double-spaced with a one-inch margin on the top, bottom, and sides of each page. When submitting hard copy, be sure to use white paper and print out using dark ink. If it is hard to read your essay, it will also be hard to follow your argument.
