Careers in Lifespan Development Essay Assignment
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).
This is not an exhaustive list. There are other topics in the textbook. If you are uncertain, ask the instructor.
â€¢ Prenatal care
â€¢ Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS)
â€¢ Preschool/ early childhood education
â€¢ Child Maltreatment
â€¢ Childhood Obesity
â€¢ Special Education
â€¢ Learning Disabilities
â€¢ Emotional and Behavioral Disorders
(identify one specific disorder)
â€¢ Intellectual Disabilities
â€¢ Childhood stress and trauma
â€¢ Peer status

Begin writing the introduction hereâ€¦ The title of the paper is centered above the first paragraph as a Level 1 heading. Avoid the title â€œIntroduction,â€ 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.
Begin writing the first paragraph hereâ€¦ 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 studyâ€™s method, the section could be labeled â€œMethod.â€
Begin writing the first paragraph hereâ€¦ 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 hereâ€¦ 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.
Begin writing the first paragraph of the section hereâ€¦ For any subtopics of level 2, use Level 3 headings.
