Anxiety Depression Library Research Assignment In this class we will explore the various aspects of child development and discuss the importance of understanding child development theories to your future roles as teachers.
The purpose of this assignment is to allow you to explore further research in the field of child development, in particular, research that is important to your group topic and to encourage you to think about how you can use that research as an educator.
You must find an article from a research journal (web articles do not count unless it is a peer-reviewed online journal) related to your group project and fill out the template, which should include a brief summary of the article and a description of how the information in the article can be used by teachers (or other professionals) either indirectly or directly. You may use the template to complete this assignment. Remember, I am not reading the article so you must demonstrate to me through your writing that you understand the article and that the information in the article can be useful for you as a teacher (or desired profession).
Be sure to include the reference in APA format. Include references in the following format:
Linnell, M. & Fluck, M. (2001). The effect of maternal support for counting and cardinal understanding in pre-school children. Social Development, 10, 202-220.
Child and adolescent journals can be found through the library’s online database (http://library.illinoisstate.edu/) and some also can be accessed online through google scholar.
