CDV 360: Adolescence Appendix A Interviewee: (Pseudonym/fake name) Interviewed by: Date: Time: Location: Interview Template Thank you for agreeing to be interviewed. I’m looking forward to our conversation. I’m just going to ask you a couple of questions and you don’t have to answer any that you don’t feel comfortable answering. These should serve as guiding questions ONLY. You will have to come up with questions that will give you answers related to your interview topic, which you will then connect to course material. For example, if you wish to focus on peers and friends, then you might want to develop questions related to friendships. Make sure to replace these questions with your own interview questions: 1. Can you tell me more about yourself? a. Tell me about who you are. 2. Can you share some of your life history? 3. Let’s talk about your experiences in middle/high school. a. Who are your favorite teachers? b. What are your favorite subjects, and why? 4. What does a day in the life of STUDENT NAME look like? At school, at home, or in your community? 5. Have you experienced any negative events in school? a. When and what happened? 6. How are your experiences in the community? a. Do you encounter more positive or more negative experiences where you live? 7. At home, how would you describe your family? 8. Can you describe the life of a student at SCHOOL NAME? Well, thank you so much for your time. It’ s been a pleasure interviewing you and asking you some of these questions. Do you have any questions for me? The remainder of your questions should focus on your topic of interest, which needs to connect to one of the topics we have covered in class over the course of the semester (i.e., friendships, family relationships, cultural beliefs, etc.). I would say you do not need more than 10 general questions, but you are encouraged to add questions that further probe adolescents’ or emerging adults’ responses.

Explanation & Answer



Assessing the Cognitive, Social and Emotional Development of an Adolescent



The psychology of child development does not only deal with the physical development of the
child. It goes farther to explore the cognitive, language and literacy, social, and emotional
development of the individual. Since adolescence can be a stage of either disorientation or
discovery, it is important to focus on understanding this development stage for best parenting
practices. This paper narrows down to the cognitive, social, and emotional development aspects of
adolescence. This study was conducted on a 13-year old female who was a grade 8 student at the
PS 50 Queens school at 143-26 101st Avenue, Jamaica, in Queens County, New York City. Data
were collected through interview method, through the use of self-administered unstructured
questionnaires. The questionnaire was structured into three sections; Section A sought general
information on the subject, Section B sought information on cognitive abilities while Section C
sought information on social and emotional intelligence. Bray has a good ability to learn a foreign
language, and she can read and write well. She also has good spelling and public speaking abilities.
She can organize her mathematical algorithm inside her brain; she can complete her equation while
thinking about it in her brain. Bray displays awareness of her own emotions. She also has that level
of the ability to understand and respond to the others. This study recommends that teachers and
parents play a critical role in understanding the child development stages and adopt the best
practices. It suggests that future research should focus on a wider scope.


The psychology of child development does not only deal with the physical development
of the child. It goes farther to explore the cognitive, language and literacy, social, and emotional
development of the individual (McLeod, 2013). Adolescence is a child development stage that
marks a transition from childhood to adulthood. Therefore, there is a need for specific and
special attention to individuals at this developmental stage. Since adolescents can be a stage of
either disorientation or discovery, it is important to focus on understanding this development
stage for best parenting practices. This paper narrows down to t...
