Discuss about the importance of research in child development and adolescence including ascertaining and understanding of the developmental theories. These theoretical frameworks include psychoanalytic theories, cognitive theories, behavioral and social cognitive theories, ethological theory, ecological theory and the eclectic theoretical framework.The idea of Theoretical Frameworks can be overwhelming. I want to diminish any fears of studying theories. Simply stated, a theory is a lens of understanding and predicting human behavior. We all have lenses that we use to understand or predict human behavior as well.As you go through the theoretical frameworks it might be confusing to understand which theory is right or wrong. In fact, some of the theories contradict each other or just describe specific processes of human development. You might also find that a combination of theories holistically explains/predicts human development which is the Eclectic Theoretical Framework.Course level OutcomesAnalyze the differences between hereditary and environmental influences on development and ways they interrelate.Formulate relevant questions about developmental processes and events, and relate these to your prior knowledge and experience.Unit Level OutcomesSummarize why research is important in child development, the main theories of child development, and research methods, designs, and challenges.The Importance of ResearchTheories of Child DevelopmentResearch Methods for Collecting DataResearch DesignsResearch ChallengesAssignment DetailsAfter reading about and discussing ALL of the theories, answer the following (please refer to the rubric included here for how points will be distributed and how your responses will be graded):Choose the theory you agree with most.
