  2. Movie 2- Your second movie should depict development in the age range from 13-40
  3. Movie 3- Your last movie should depict development in the age range of 40-death.

*Keep in mind that some films will actually depict development from more than one period. If this is the case, explain the overlap in your summary of the film.

Directions (Completed across previous units)

  1. Your first step will be to research each developmental period. In addition to your text, you should use
    • one peer reviewed article
    • one magazine/newspaper article that has been published in the last five years.
  2. Give a summary of that developmental period that is applicable to your movie choice. Use your text and research. Your summary should include:
    • one physical milestone/concept/theory,
    • one cognitive milestone/concept/theory
    • one psychosocial milestone/concept/theory.
  3. For each movie you chose, explain in detail how the movie depicts the physical, cognitive, and psychosocial milestone/concept/theory. Give details about the characters’ behaviors that are specific examples of the milestones/concepts/theories.
  4. Compare and contrast how development is depicted in film, as compared to your research using the text, scholarly articles, and magazine/newspaper articles. What do you believe the impact of these similarities and differences is on society in general?

Be sure and address the following to consider when completing these sections:

  1. Use developmental terminology throughout your document to describe behaviors and concepts.
  2. Is the development depicted in the movie typical? Why or why not? Support your answer with the research you have done.
  3. What factors contributed to the depiction of the characters’ development (i.e., class, culture, ethnicity, religion, historical location, personality, parenting/ styles, social location, life events, etc.)?

Submit  your paper in APA format, with a cover page, abstract page, introduction, body, conclusion, and reference page.

During each unit, you will submit assignments and receive feedback regarding a description and analysis of the three movies which span various developmental periods. The Core Assessment is largely synthesizing these depictions of development,  analysis of developmental concepts, and theoretical application, along with your instructor’s feedback together into a paper, creating a comprehensive document.
