Part 1: Writing a Play

Read the articles assigned for this topic and conduct additional research on the Internet or through the GCU Library. Use your knowledge to write a one-act play about a small group of friends.

Through the dialogue, the children should exhibit evidence of being in the concrete-operational period of cognitive development.

Be as creative in the dialogue of your scene as you can, remembering that at this stage children, according to the textbook, become "less egocentric, rarely confuse appearances with reality, and are able to reverse their thinking."

Set the scene and include acting and stage direction, if necessary and appropriate.

Your creative work should be between 500-750 words.

Give your play a name.

Part 2: Summary

Write a summary of approximately 200 to 300 words in which you analyze and explain ethical and cultural strategies for promoting resilience, optimum development, and wellness in middle childhood.
