Assignment: The Developmental Theories of Erikson and Piaget
Assignment: The Developmental Theories of Erikson and Piaget
Demonstrate how to incorporate the developmental theories of Erikson and Piaget into your care of children in two specific age groups.
Overview of Assignment:
You will need to demonstrate communication and care techniques you would use based on the developmental level/stage (from Erikson and Piaget’s theories) of children from two different age groups.
You will create a short video that is 6-15 minutes long, connecting EriksonandPiaget’s developmental theories to two specific age groups: an 18-month-old and an 8-year-old. You should include how your nursing interactions would be different for each child.
Use the resources in your book, Canvas, and at least one other scholarly resource to review the theories. According to these views, you’ll need to figure out what stage each child is in for their age. Based on this understanding, you will demonstrate how you would speak with them and approach them to offer care, such as giving them a bath, collecting vital signs, and administering a shot when they are in the hospital. According to Erikson and Piaget’s ideas, your approach should be focused on each child’s developmental stage.
You will create and record this demonstration.
Audience for video: A “new” nurse orienting to pediatric care in a hospital.
You may use an actor demonstrating typical behavior of an 18 mo and 8 yo child. If you use an actor, they must consent to be recorded on video.
If you do not have an actor, you may use an inanimate object being sure to express in some form how they may be responding to you.
Information which must be included in the video:
Appropriate developmental levels from both theories for each age group
Questions or observations used to determine if they are in the correct stage
Therapeutic interaction demonstrating developmentally appropriate patient care
The length of this video should be 6-15 minutes long and should include:
with a specific thesis statement (Introduce your topic in the video. Make the person viewing your video interested in your topic, make it catchy.)
Body of Video:
Demonstrate howBOTHPiaget’s and Erikson’s theories are important when providing care for each child and how it changes your approach to the child when providing care
Use scholarly sources tosupport your ideas and explanations of the theories
Use specific examples forcommunication, persuasion, restraint holds for both ages, how you would give a shot, convince the child to take a medication they do not want to take
Give specific examples of what you would say or do differently.
Demonstrate your “nursing” interaction with an 18-month-old, explain theory behind your actions, demonstrate your “nursing” interaction with an 8-year-old, explain theory behind your actions, compare and contrast the two age groups
Summarize your findings; re-emphasize the thesis/purpose of the video without simply repeating it; and do not introduce new ideas here
Use proper grammar throughout the video, use proper spelling, and APA 7th edition formatting including a title at the beginning of the video and reference page at the end of the video
If you are unable to figure out how to show your references in your video, you MUST upload a separate document in canvas with your references. You must use a research article as a reference for your video.
ORDER NOW FOR AN ORIGINAL PAPER ASSIGNMENT: Assignment: The Developmental Theories of Erikson and Piaget
You must proofread your paper. But do not strictly rely on your computer’s spell-checker and grammar-checker; failure to do so indicates a lack of effort on your part and you can expect your grade to suffer accordingly. Papers with numerous misspelled words and grammatical mistakes will be penalized. Read over your paper – in silence and then aloud – before handing it in and make corrections as necessary. Often it is advantageous to have a friend proofread your paper for obvious errors. Handwritten corrections are preferable to uncorrected mistakes.
Use a standard 10 to 12 point (10 to 12 characters per inch) typeface. Smaller or compressed type and papers with small margins or single-spacing are hard to read. It is better to let your essay run over the recommended number of pages than to try to compress it into fewer pages.
Likewise, large type, large margins, large indentations, triple-spacing, increased leading (space between lines), increased kerning (space between letters), and any other such attempts at “padding” to increase the length of a paper are unacceptable, wasteful of trees, and will not fool your professor.
The paper must be neatly formatted, double-spaced with a one-inch margin on the top, bottom, and sides of each page. When submitting hard copy, be sure to use white paper and print out using dark ink. If it is hard to read your essay, it will also be hard to follow your argument.
ADDITIONAL INSTRUCTIONS FOR THE CLASS
Discussion Questions (DQ)
Initial responses to the DQ should address all components of the questions asked, include a minimum of one scholarly source, and be at least 250 words.
Successful responses are substantive (i.e., add something new to the discussion, engage others in the discussion, well-developed idea) and include at least one scholarly source.
One or two sentence responses, simple statements of agreement or “good post,” and responses that are off-topic will not count as substantive. Substantive responses should be at least 150 words.
I encourage you to incorporate the readings from the week (as applicable) into your responses.
Your initial responses to the mandatory DQ do not count toward participation and are graded separately.
In addition to the DQ responses, you must post at least one reply to peers (or me) on three separate days, for a total of three replies.
Participation posts do not require a scholarly source/citation (unless you cite someone else’s work).
Part of your weekly participation includes viewing the weekly announcement and attesting to watching it in the comments. These announcements are made to ensure you understand everything that is due during the week.
APA Format and Writing Quality
Familiarize yourself with APA format and practice using it correctly. It is used for most writing assignments for your degree. Visit the Writing Center in the Student Success Center, under the Resources tab in LoudCloud for APA paper templates, citation examples, tips, etc. Points will be deducted for poor use of APA format or absence of APA format (if required).
Cite all sources of information! When in doubt, cite the source. Paraphrasing also requires a citation.
I highly recommend using the APA Publication Manual, 6th edition.
Use of Direct Quotes
I discourage overutilization of direct quotes in DQs and assignments at the Masters’ level and deduct points accordingly.
As Masters’ level students, it is important that you be able to critically analyze and interpret information from journal articles and other resources. Simply restating someone else’s words does not demonstrate an understanding of the content or critical analysis of the content.
It is best to paraphrase content and cite your source.
For assignments that need to be submitted to LopesWrite, please be sure you have received your report and Similarity Index (SI) percentage BEFORE you do a “final submit” to me.
Once you have received your report, please review it. This report will show you grammatical, punctuation, and spelling errors that can easily be fixed. Take the extra few minutes to review instead of getting counted off for these mistakes.
Review your similarities. Did you forget to cite something? Did you not paraphrase well enough? Is your paper made up of someone else’s thoughts more than your own?
Visit the Writing Center in the Student Success Center, under the Resources tab in LoudCloud for tips on improving your paper and SI score.
The university’s policy on late assignments is 10% penalty PER DAY LATE. This also applies to late DQ replies.
Please communicate with me if you anticipate having to submit an assignment late. I am happy to be flexible, with advance notice. We may be able to work out an extension based on extenuating circumstances.
If you do not communicate with me before submitting an assignment late, the GCU late policy will be in effect.
I do not accept assignments that are two or more weeks late unless we have worked out an extension.
As per policy, no assignments are accepted after the last day of class. Any assignment submitted after midnight on the last day of class will not be accepted for grading.
Communication is so very important. There are multiple ways to communicate with me:
Questions to Instructor Forum: This is a great place to ask course content or assignment questions. If you have a question, there is a good chance one of your peers does as well. This is a public forum for the class.
Individual Forum: This is a private forum to ask me questions or send me messages. This will be checked at least once every 24 hours.
