Week 3, Chapters 3 and 4

Posted: January 21, 2011 in Assignment

Reading Assignment- Chapters 3 & 4 (focus on the items listed on your chapters 3 & 4 study guide). I would be well worth your time to review the Chapter 3 PowerPoint and Chapter 4 Powerpoint presentations.

Chapter 3 & 4 Questions (10 pts each) – Please post your answers in the chapter questions assignment link provided.

1. What can studies of feral, isolated, and institutionalized children tell us about child development? Based on these studies, do children really need parents in order to develop normally? Is it necessary for infants to be around adult human beings to become “human” themselves?
2. Discuss social structure and explain how one’s location in this structure affects that person’s perceptions, attitudes and behaviors.

Quiz (25 points) – Complete the quiz over chapters 3 & 4. (You can only enter the test site once and must complete the test at that time so be sure you’re ready to take it. You have 45 min. total. I suggest reviewing the study guide for chapters 3 & 4 in preparation.)
High School credit only students – you’ll need to complete the assignment in the comment section, and complete both chapters 3 and 4 quizes in eLearning.

Notes (possible questions) from the Textbook Study Guide were sent to you via gmail, but you can also download them here.

    1. If you don’t have parents you don’t develop normally. The things that parents do make the difference between kids developing normal or not. It is necessary for babies to be around a older role model so they can learn how to act otherwise they won’t know what to do.
    2. Social structure refers to the typical patterns of a group, such as its usual relationships between men and women or students and teachers. Social structure guides behavior, such as how a person acts, or how a person functions in a society.

  2. Nathan says:

    1) It tells us that without parents it would be very hard on a kids life. It is necessary for kids to be around parents to learn how to do certain things.
    2) Social structure is how a person acts, feels, or does things and how they react to it.

  3. Derrick says:

    1. It is to show us that kids need parents to develop right. Parents are there to teach kids how to do certain things without parents kids dont get to learn those things.

    2. Social Structure is how people act and feel in a group.
