PSY 104 Week 1 DQ 1 Careers in Child Development
Prior to completing this discussion, please see the Careers in Child and Adolescent Development document and visit the relevant career websites. Review any relevant Instructor Guidance.
In this discussion you will be exploring aspects of your ideal career by answering the following questions:
What is the stage of development that you most hope to influence and/or work with?
Name two concrete ways in which you would like to improve a child or adolescent’s life.
What domain(s) of development do you feel is (are) most important to help children or adolescents develop?
What type or level of education are you hoping (or willing) to complete?
What would be your ideal working conditions (e.g. location, hours, pay, etc.)?
Once you have answered these questions about yourself, relate the value of continued learning by looking at the Careers in Child and Adolescent Development document, choosing a career you feel most closely matches the ideal career preferences you listed, and address the following:
Identify the career and describe how it is related to child or adolescent development in one or two brief sentences.
In what ways does this career match your interests?
In what areas might you have to sacrifice one or more of your ideal job preferences in order to pursue this career?

PSY 104 Week 1 Journal
In a Journal entry of 500-1000 words, begin by reflecting on the phrase, “Well that’s what we did with my kids and they turned out just fine.” Describe your own thoughts about this statement and explain why this may be true in some cases, but not in others. Use personal experiences or examples to support your factual statements and opinions.
Then, watch the Endless Questions video analyzing child development research and find one additional scholarly source of your choice (see tips and a link to tutorials below) and use them to reflect on and answer the following questions:

Why is it important to utilize problem-solving techniques in exploring developmental issues, grounded in child development theory to explain and/or demonstrate a foundational knowledge of the children’s developmental continuum, from conception? What makes scholarly research different from anecdotal evidence (or personal experience) in explaining child and adolescent development? [Hint: Consider the methodology of the articles you are reading.] Identify and briefly describe the key points of one theory and why you feel that theory is applicable to child and/or adolescent development.
Finally, relate the value of continued learning with a concluding reflection on why we should incorporate both personal experience and scholarly research grounded in theory to help support any statements made in this class or any other professional setting.

Prior to completing this discussion, please read the required chapter in the textbook, view the Prenatal Genetic Counseling video, and review any relevant Instructor Guidance.
Our advances in genetics have opened the door to improvements in the quality of life for many children, and have also initiated many debates on the ethical and moral considerations of genetic testing and intervention. In this discussion, you will demonstrate a foundational knowledge of a child’s developmental continuum from conception by addressing one of these debates for your original post.
From the required resources consulted, identify two genetic tests routinely offered to women during their pregnancy. Citing at least one of these, or choosing at least one other scholarly resource, describe at least two benefits and two risks of each procedure. In your opinion, do the benefits of these procedures outweigh the risks posed to either the mother or fetus? Why or why not? Apply this information by choosing one of the scenarios below and address the specific issues presented supporting your conclusions with references from your sources

PSY 104 Week 5 Final Paper
Your community is opening a brand new recreation and family center. Now that you are an expert in the field, you have been chosen to lead a development team that will create a proposal for interactive, fun, and educational activities and other features that will be provided for children and adolescents. Utilize problem-solving techniques in exploring developmental issues, grounded in child development, in order to assess what should be included in each room. Once you have chosen these features, you must present your ideas to a mock city council board with both a written outline of what will be included, and an interactive presentation that you can show them which will relate your ideas as well as the value of continued learning throughout childhood and adolescence.
Your proposal must include designs for the development of five different rooms in the recreation and family center which have been set aside for classes and activities for the following age groups:
Infant (0-1 year)
Toddler (1-3 years)
Early Childhood (3-6 years)
Middle/Late Childhood (7-12 years)
Adolescence (13-18 years)
There are two parts to your final project; a written script (Part A) and a visual presentation (Part B). In Part A, create a script for your visual presentation in which you identify and describe at least two weekly classes or activities for each age group that address their developmental pathways: physical, cognitive, and psychosocial. All three domains of development must be addressed within your classes or activities. For example, you may have one class which enhances cognitive and psychosocial development and a second class which enhances physical development. You will demonstrate a foundational knowledge of the age group’s developmental continuum by explaining your reasoning for choosing each class or activity in each room based on your analysis of theory and current child development research.
Additionally, you will go “shopping” for at least one age-appropriate game, toy, picture, or other “play” item to place in each room. Keep in mind that this may include things like art, music, technology, or safety elements as you deem fit. For each item you place in the room, your presentation will provide a picture and a link to a website from which the item can be purchased by the city and your script will provide an explanation for why the city should purchase the item for the room.
The overall goal of the written script and visual presentation is much like that of a grant proposal, in which a developer must convince the funding group that his/her new business or venture is both cost-effective and beneficial to the community. You are encouraged to be creative and persuasive in your script, but remember that everything must be supported by the theories and research covered in our class. Included in PART A is a Written Script template , demonstrating what information should be included in your written portion of the project. While you are expected to cite facts and include a reference page in your script, these do not need to be read out loud in your final visual presentation.
In addition to the written component of the assignment, Part B will utilize Prezi.com and Screenr.com to share your learning acquisition in child development with the members of a mock city council in an interactive proposal which visually and vocally presents the activities, classes, and products which should be available in each room. The Prezi program allows you to design your recreation and family center proposal as if you were guiding a visitor through each separate classroom. Your Prezi must include a picture of each room (appropriately labeled), while you will utilize Screenr.com to provide the voice-over description of what will be in each room. Below is a sample Screenr presentation, demonstrating how your own Prezi might look and what you might say in your proposal. (Please note that this is a sample only. No part of this video should be used in your own assignment.)
