I hope you had a great first week. I think most of us will get into the time-line and pace a little better moving forward now.
My expectations for a masters level class is "higher order" thinking that leads to insight and understanding. Remember, the "why" is as important as the "what". Don't forget that for any assignments you have a rubric to follow as a point of reference. Under the assignments section are the explanations and rubrics that should be reviewed before you start each assignment.
As you think of the developmental theories, try to remember the data you read about. Consider a possible dilemma in your theoretical development. What role does what we worship (desire) play in development.
This might not help you on all the exercises, but it will challenge cognitive only people that believe we should only focus on the concrete and cognitive in teaching people and not include the heart. I think people are also driven by what they love or envision as the “ good life” ? I am asking that you might consider what role affect (emotions) play in development?
All the ways of a man are clean in his own sight,
But the LORD weighs the motives (desires).
The first Discussion Board starts week 3----Be sure to post at least 3 different times in the week- your original post by Thursday night and over a 4 day period-- this is your "'class attendance"---- Those who procrastinate-- let me encourage you to get right on-top of it! Posting all the same day will cost you points. The discussion board has the most weight in this class as will can see in the syllabus.
