Physical, Cognitive and Social Development – 55 Pages 

Human development is a process in which there are various cognitive, physical, social, and emotional milestones from conception to death, all of which require mastery. Our discussion begins with an exploration of physical development. All stages are essential for development, however, if you had to rank the importance of these physical stages, which would you rank as most important? Please provide an explanation to support your answer.

In the first graded thread in Week 5, we are going to converse and have many insightful discussions on Physical, Cognitive, Emotional, Personality, Social and Moral Development

(Given a child who is lagging in motor and language skills, an adolescent struggling with an identity crisis, or an older adult confronting issues related to retirement, assess how research on development and the major developmental theories might explain and help someone cope with these issues)

(Given a need to understand, explain, and interpret someone’s behavior, examine the development, structure, and functioning of personality and compare and contrast the major theories, including the strengths and weaknesses inherent in each approach)

Students who actively participate in the weekly threaded discussions tend to do extremely well on the weekly assignments. So as always, I expect to see everyone continue to work hard in the threads and reach their weekly posting requirements of 3 high value posts on 3 separate days starting no later than Wednesday of each week.

Next, answer the following questions: Human development is a process in which there are various physical, cognitive, emotional, personality, social, and moral milestones from conception to death, all of which require mastery. Our discussion begins with an exploration of physical development. All stages are essential for development, however, if you had to rank the importance of these physical stages [e.g., prenatal development or postnatal development (e.g., reflexes, motor, brain etc.], which would you rank as most important? Please provide an explanation to support your answer.

I believe that the more important development is the prenatal development. There are three stages to this development which are the germinal period, the embryonic period and the fetal period. All these stages are important but I feel that the embryonic period is the most critical. This period is from about two to eight weeks and is when the embryo begins to receive nourishment from the mother through the placenta. This is critical because this is when the embryo is vulnerable to diseases, drugs or any other toxins that pass from the mother through the placenta to the embryo. There are several things that can take place in these two to eight weeks like physical or structural problems can occur with the central nervous system or even the develop of the arms and the legs. They can only be affected during this period of development…

Sexuality and Gender – 47 Pages 

Understanding sexuality varies from culture to culture, yet there are basic biological, cognitive, and emotional components in sexuality and sexual development. A good starting point in understanding our topic this week will be to explore the issues of sexual identity and gender role. What is the difference between the two and what are some examples of sexual identity and gender roles?

In this second graded threaded discussion area for Week 5, we will explore the subjects of Sexuality and Gender

The difference between the two is that sexual identity is how a person thinks of themselves as far as who they are romantically or sexually attracted to. Sexual orientation is a person’s sexually attraction to the same sex or the opposite sex. Being gay, lesbian, bisexual or straight are all examples of sexual orientation. These are ways to determine what a person is attracted to by their sexually orientation…
