  1. Parenting Styles

    Briefly describe the different parenting styles discussed in this week’s readings. How could they impact a child’s cognitive and social development? Select two parental characters in TV or movie media (e.g., movies, situation comedies, TV dramas) and identify the styles that the characters who are acting in the roles of the parents are applying to the characters who are acting in the roles of children. Each of your characters should demonstrate a different parenting style—do not discuss two characters demonstrating the same style. What do the readings say about the effects of these parenting styles on cognitive and social development? In what ways are the behaviors of the children consistent with the information in the readings and in what ways are the children’s behaviors different?Guided Response: Review several of your classmates’ posts. Provide a substantive response to at least two of your peers. Do you agree or disagree with the comments and opinions expressed by each of your peers? Explain your answer.
  2. Ethnicity and Learning Theory

    Select an ethnic group from your textbook, or outside readings, and discuss how the application of learning theory may vary according to the cultural beliefs and values of this group. Based on the research, justify why you think specific learning techniques could be used by your chosen ethnic group. Guided Response: Review several of your classmates’ posts. Provide a substantive response to at least two of your peers who chose an ethnic group different from yours. According to the research you conducted, do you think that the learning techniques proposed by your peers are appropriate for their chosen ethnic group? Explain your reasoning.
