Human Development Scrapbook/E-Scrapbook

In this unit we have been investigating the life cycle of human development.  We will be working with four primary psychological theories to understand how people grow and mature.  The psychologists we will be learning about are Freud, Erikson, Piaget, and Kohlberg. 

For this project you will be making a personal development scrapbook or PowerPoint/Prezi presentation, detailing your own unique development. 


Cover Page  Title, name, period, etc. Decorate this page.  Be creative, use pictures, events, graphics.

Page 1  Table of Contents

Page 2  Your birth. Where were you born? Who are your parents? Your culture? Your brothers and sisters? How are the circumstances of your birth significant to your life? Include pictures if possible.

Pages 3-10  Each stage your life with the following criteria on each page:

1. Research--define the stage you have selected; explaining the major concepts or conflicts within that stage (what the theorists said).  Make sure you are using at least two out of the four theorists.

2. Application—use short stories from three stages of your life that shows the theory at work in your life.  Show me that you understand the theory you are trying to explain and the meaning behind it.  Make sure to add an explanation of how your example connects to the theory, though!

3.  Professional Presentation--pictures of you at each stage would be wonderful, but not necessary.  Find pictures online or in magazines of other cute kids to illustrate your points.

4. Conduct an interviews with a family members. Because you may not know all the circumstances and stories of your childhood, be sure to conduct interviews in a timely manner.  This project will be tough to do at the last minute for this reason.
