Observation and Interview Assignment Options 1. Infancy/Early Childhood Activity This assignment involves spending two hours with pre-school aged children – one hour each with two different children of different ages (between the ages of 1 month and 4 years old). Discuss developmental milestones, assessing the skills of the child in the areas of motor skills (fine and gross) development, cognitive development, socialization, language, and self-help/adaptive skills. Depending on the age of the child, you may also try some other activities (e.g., conservation task, moral dilemma, etc.). Write a short (3-4 page) paper (typed, double-spaced) about your observations with the children. Do not use any identifying information about the person you interview in your paper. Summarize the milestones observed according to the Child Development Checklist provided. Also, from information in the text and checklist, comment on how each child's skill levels compare to age norms for those skill levels. The goal here is to integrate information from your observation with information from the text. Discuss Piaget and Erikson’s developmental theories in terms of the child you are observing. Second, reflect on your experience interacting with/observing the children. What surprised you? What was consistent with your expectations? What did you learn? In what ways has engaging in this activity impacted or changed your social awareness about individuals who are in this stage of development? What new insights or understandings have you developed? How has engaging in this activity impacted or changed your personal awareness of yourself when you were in this stage of development? 2. School-aged child or adolescent interview Option A: School-aged Child Interview (6-10) 1. Present the child with a conservation task (use one of the conservation tests listed in Ch.5 of the text). Assess whether she/he has gained the ability to conserve & whether he/she has gotten the idea of reversibility. If the child has not achieved the concept of conservation, try to explain it to him/her and note what type of response you get. (Most at this age will have achieved this concept). 2. Present the child with a moral thinking dilemma (See list posted in this assignment in Canvas). Record the child's response and determine which of Kolhberg's stages the response is consistent with. Provide your rationale. 3. Discuss with the child his/her peer group. Find out who the group consists of (number, gender, ages...). Question the child about the interactions of
