Careers in Lifespan Development Essay Assignment

Essential Elements

To prepare for this assignment, you will first select a career, period of development, a

developmental theory, and specific topic from the textbook. The specific topic must be clearly

relevant to both the career and developmental period you selected.

1. In your textbook, see Chapter 1 Appendix, Careers in Lifespan Development (p. 43).

From the list of careers, identify one career of interest to you. You may ask the instructor

for permission to select a career not on the list if it requires knowledge of lifespan

development. Unless you receive permission for a different career, you must select one

from the list in the textbook.

2. Select one period of developmental (p.14) that would be encountered by a professional in

the career you selected. Some careers (i.e. geriatric physician, neonatal nurse, preschool

teacher) might be limited to one developmental period. Other careers may potentially

work with individuals across several periods of development and you will need to choose

one. Either way, you will select one of the following: infancy, early childhood,

middle/late childhood, adolescence, early adulthood, middle adulthood, late adulthood.

3. From the textbook, select a topic of interest. It should be an issue that will likely be

addressed by a person in the career you selected. A list of potential topics is provided

below but you are not limited to those listed. This list should give you a good idea of the

kinds of topics that are acceptable. If you are unsure about a different topic, just ask.

4. Select at least one major theory of development. You will explain how the theory might

be used to help guide you in your work with an individual in the period of development

you chose. These may include Piaget, Erickson, or Bronfenbrenner. If your chosen period

of development is late adulthood, you might consider activity theory, socioemotional

selectivity theory, or selective optimization with compensation theory (pp. 587-588).

Potential Topics
This is not an exhaustive list. There are other topics in the textbook. If you are uncertain, ask the instructor.

• Prenatal care

• Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS)

Paper Title

Begin writing the introduction here… The title of the paper is centered above the first paragraph as a Level 1 heading. Avoid the title “Introduction,” since the beginning of the paper is known to be the introduction.

The number of headings needed for a paper depends on the complexity of the document. Use only the number of headings necessary to identify distinct sections in your paper. When two levels are needed, use Levels 1 and 2. If using a level 2 heading, the document should include a level 1 heading and at least two level 2 headings. When three levels are needed, use Levels 1, 2, and 3. If including a level 3 heading, the document should include a level 1 heading, at least two level 2 headings, and at least two level three headings as subsections of a level 2 section.



Level One Heading Identifying First Topic After the Introduction

Begin writing the first paragraph here… If the paper requires a main section after the introduction, use a Level 1 heading. For example, if the next section after the introduction is a discussion on the study’s method, the section could be labeled “Method.”


Level Two Heading to Identify Each Subtopic of the Section

Begin writing the first paragraph here… For subsections of any Level 1 heading, use Level 2 headings. Headings should not include numbers or letters.

Level Two Heading to Identify an Additional Subtopic of the Section

Begin writing the first paragraph of the section here… Use the same level heading for topics of the equal importance. For example, in a literature review, all major themes would have the same headings.




Level Three Heading to Identify a Subsection of the Second Subtopic

Begin writing the first paragraph of the section here… For any subtopics of level 2, use Level 3 headings.

Level Three Heading to Identify an Additional Subsection of the Second Subtopic

Begin writing the first paragraph of the section here… Level hea
