Child development study
Using the developmental stage selected by your group for the Applied Developmental Theory Activity, observe children in that age level(age level is 10-12 years old) at a selected site for a minimum of 30 minutes. Suggested sites include, but not limited to: schools, church youth groups, libraries, malls, restaurants, and parks.
Each team member will then write a summary of their experience reflecting the principles and concepts of the selected theory. The observations will then be combined into one assignment each reflecting a different observation but connected through a common theory.
Include the following in each observation summary:
a.) Site description, including number of children observed
b.) Developmental stage
d.) Behaviors observed
f.) Implications for classroom application
