Question description

What do twin and adoption studies tell us about the effects of nature (i.e., genetic influences) and nurture (i.e., environmental influences) on human development? Select at least one of the main domains of human development (i.e., physical, cognitive, or social-emotional).

For this outline, address the following:

  • Examine various theories of human development, describing relevant terminology, and addressing how the theory assists in the understanding of issues involved in the selected topic.
  • Identify and describe at least two domains of human development (physical, biological, emotional, cognitive, and/or social) and how they are impacted by the chosen topic.
  • Identify and describe the stages of development that are affected by the chosen topic.
  • Describe the cultural and historical perspectives of the chosen topic, demonstrating an understanding of how the topic has been perceived over time and by other cultures. Provide relevant examples.

Writing the Outline for the Final Paper

The Outline:
  1. Must be two to three double-spaced pages in length (excluding title and reference pages), and formatted according to APA style
  2. Must begin with an introductory paragraph that has a succinct thesis statement.
    1. Begin with an introduction to the selected topic in which you define all concepts that will be discussed in the paper.
    2. For example, if you select “How do memory and intelligence change as we age?”, as your topic, then you will need to define the terms memory, intelligence and aging.
  3. Must address the topic of the paper with critical thought.
  4. Must end with a conclusion that reaffirms your thesis.
    1. Conclude with an answer to the selected question. Did the evidence you surveyed answer the question satisfactorily? Include your analysis of the strengths and weaknesses of the available evidence.
    2. If possible, suggest the course that future research should take if answers to the selected question are less than conclusive.
  5. Must use at least five scholarly sources, all of which must come from Google Scholar.
    1. It is important that you ask yourself if the articles specifically address the selected topic. It is not always easy to find the right articles. Thus, give yourself some time to search before you finalize your selection.  
    2. You may reference your textbook and other required materials from the course; however, these will not fulfill the resource requirement.
  6. Must briefly summarize each article including the purpose of the investigation, its methodology, and results.
    1. If possible, select peer-reviewed articles that summarize the evidence available in a given field of study (e.g., meta-analysis combines the findings of different studies to uncover trends, commonalities and differences).
    2. Order the articles in the way you think you will discuss them in your paper. Then develop a summary of the scientific evidence that answers the question you selected.
  7. Must document all sources in APA style
  8. Must include a separate reference page, formatted according to APA style
    1. The reference section will be the final page of the paper.
