To view a segment on the CD-ROM, select the appropriate unit from the menu, then click on the segment title in the right-hand navigation bar.

Optional Resources

 

 

With these Learning Resources in mind, please proceed to the Content Review.

 

  1. Based on your reading of Chapter 1 in the course text and the information presented in Unit 1 of the CD-ROM, identify the three developmental domains and describe a specific example of each related to young children. (Note: Use the terminology for the domains from the course text.) Consider whether you believe one domain is more important than either of the others and support your point of view. Write at least one paragraph that explains your thinking.
  2. Understanding the transactional perspective of children’s development is fundamental to grasping the diversity of children’s development. Review pages 21–23, including Figure 1.7, in your course text. Then, in your own words, define transactional perspective. Provide an example from your own life that illustrates this important concept. If no personal example comes to mind, describe a theoretical example that is different from the one in the text.
  3. In the past, people believed that children’s development was influenced by either nature (genes) or nurture (environment). Now, however, it is commonly understood that nature and nurture both contribute to how children develop. Consider the information you learned from the CD-ROM segment “Nature or Nurture or Both?” (Unit 3), and then review pages 72–75 of the course text. In your own words, explain why the interaction of nature and nurture makes it challenging to understand the reasons for a specific child’s behavior.
