Question description

Unit 1: Theory and Research in Human Development - DiscussioS

Your active participation in discussion threads is critical to the development of your understanding of the main concepts studied in this unit. Further, posting detailed responses allows your professor to guide your thinking and your classmates to respond to your ideas. Please participate as early in the week as possible, and be sure to share your thoughts and ideas as often as you can throughout the unit.

Respond to the thread below. Your original response should be at least 350 words and should reflect the fact that you have completed the assigned readings for the week. Remember, this is your chance to illustrate not only your understanding, but also your mastery of the materials for the unit. Carefully select your words so that your responses contain a balance between theory, experience, and your thoughts. Limit the use of direct quotes describing the ideas in your own words instead. Include specific citations when necessary and attempt to make each post additive in nature (add new and relevant information to our discussion).



 
Developmental psychologists study specific types of growth in people of a target age or age range. For example, a psychologist might study language development in pre-verbal toddlers or peer-group formation in pre-adolescents. Using the theories and research methods described in your assigned reading, propose a study of a topic of interest to you. Developmental studies are based in a developmental theory, so be sure to select one that is likely to support your ideas. You have a sample research study in your assigned reading. Practice finding all of the information listed below in the study to help understand how to design your own study.Developmental psychologists study specific types of growth in people of a target age or age range.

Be sure to include:

Target age or age group

Specific name of the theory (to be sure that we all understand each other, add the name of the theorist too)

Research question (be specific)

Research design (you may name the model and then try to explain how the model would be used to create a study)


Once you have completed your research design post, respond to your classmates commenting on other research methods that might be used in their studies. Also, propose other theories that could be used to explain their research question.
