1) In the first part of this assignment, you will find and describe an instance


1) In the first part of this assignment, you will find and describe an
instance of a child’s observed behavior or a phenomenon seen in childhood.
This “observed behavior” could take the form of a social media post (e.g., a
TikTok, Instagram, or Facebook video; Reddit post), a YouTube clip, a
parenting blog post, magazine article, etc. You must provide the link to
the video or article. This description should be detailed enough that a
person who has not seen the video or read the article you selected will
understand what the child (or children) has done.
2A) In the second section of the assignment, you will identify and describe
content we covered in the class that you believe relates to the observed
behavior you identified in part 1. This section should include enough detail
and explanation of the concept(s), theories, cognitive mechanisms, or other
that someone who has not taken this course would understand.
2B) In the final section, you will discuss how the content you described in
part 2A relates to the observed child behavior you described in part
1. This should include relating it the certain theories, concepts, or cognitive
mechanisms we covered in class that you explained in part 2. For instance,
you can explain how the “observed behavior” you described in part 1
answers or relates to a particular developmental question we discussed; how
the theories or concepts might help to explain the behavior; whether, why,
and how the behavior contradicts or supports previous findings we
discussed; how the media post may differ from the experimental methods
used to examine the topic or concept; why and how the observed behavior
may be different for other children (e.g., at younger or older ages) according
to what you described in part 2A.
The video will be in the files section as well as the slide I want you to use for the assignment, I will also include the rubric so you can understand what the teacher wants
