This week, you will begin preliminary work on your final assignment in the course, Integrating the Field of Developmental Psychology: A Review of the Literature, which is due in Week 6. To begin, select an age group/developmental stage from the list below:
Infancy and toddlerhood (0-3 years)
Childhood (3-12 years)
Adolescence (13-18 years)
Young Adulthood (18-40 years)
Middle-Late Adulthood (40+ years)
In your paper, clearly identify the age group and developmental stage selected. Describe the important physical, emotional, cognitive, and social features of that age group. Analyze that developmental stage from the point of view of at least three developmental theorists (For example, but not limited to the viewpoints of; Piaget, Freud, Erickson, etc.). Summarize the theory you find most useful to explain that developmental stage.
