Applying Critical Thinking in Child Development

Assignment Context

From the Flaws in Thinking and Scenarios table, you selected a common flaw in thinking when considering child development and one of the scenarios linked with it. In this assignment, you will apply critical thinking to your selection.

Assignment Instructions

Complete the following:

  • Identify the flaw you selected and its associated scenario.
  • Write a paper in the following format:
    • Introduction: Write an introduction in which you coherently demonstrate clear understanding of the flawed thinking you selected through support from secondary sources.
    • Body: In 2–3 paragraphs, analyze how using the flawed thinking could impact the scenario you picked. For example, you could select, “My cousin drank wine while she was pregnant and my nephew is fine. It is fine to drink while pregnant.” You would identify this as telling an anecdote and write a single paragraph about why anecdotal evidence is problematic when considering child development. You would then review the empirical literature around what we currently know about the impact of prenatal alcohol consumption and infant and child outcomes with at least 3–5 peer-reviewed academic journal articles.
    • Conclusion: Summarize how child development theory and research can be used to analyze the impact of flawed thinking to children’s evolving needs.
