Learning Goal: I’m working on a powerpoint presentation and need the explanation and answer to help me learn.

Directions: After reading Chapter 1 and reviewing Chapter 10 of your textbook, create a 10-12-slide PowerPoint Presentation addressing the below.

The goal of this assignment is to address how the individual selected became whom they are today or who they were using concepts learned in Topic 1.
This assignment should be in a third-person narrative and include a scholarly research-based discussion.

  1. Select a famous person and describe their childhood/background (where they lived, one- or two-parent household, siblings, good in school, adopted, abuse, barriers, etc.).
  2. Look ahead to Chapter 10. According to Baumrinds parenting styles, discuss the suspected parenting style used (e.g., permissive parenting style).
  3. Discuss social challenges (e.g., culture, SES, bullying, gender identity). Discuss any biological, cognitive, and socioemotional processes that can be identified.
  4. What period of development was pivotal for this person and why? Use research to support claims.
  5. Examine influences on this individuals development using concepts from the textbook (e.g., cohort effect, issues in development, nature versus nurture, continuity vs. discontinuity, early vs. late experiences). What made this individual who they are today or who they were?

Use three to four scholarly resources to support your explanations. Apply relevant topics as discussed in the textbook and other resources you have located and read (the textbook can count as one source). In addition, credible websites such as .org, .mil, .gov, and .edu are acceptable, however, cannot serve as primary sources to support this assignment.

Refer to the resource, “Creating Effective PowerPoint Presentations,” located in the Student Success Center, for additional guidance on completing this assignment in the appropriate style/format.

Include speaker notes below each content-related slide that represents what would be said if giving the presentation in person. Expand upon the information included in the slide and do not simply restate it. Please ensure the speaker notes include a minimum of 100 words per slide.

While APA style is not required for the body of this assignment, solid academic writing is expected, and documentation of sources should be presented using APA formatting guidelines, including an APA formatted reference slide, which can be found in the APA Style Guide, located in the Student Success Center.

This assignment uses a rubric. Please review the rubric prior to beginning the assignment to become familiar with the expectations for successful completion.

You are required to submit this assignment to LopesWrite. A link to the LopesWrite technical support articles is located in Class Resources if you need assistance.
