BC: The End.
FC: Lifelines | by: Kayla Morgan
1: Dedication | I dedicate this book to my mother, who has seen me through every stage of my development.
2: Introduction | My name is Kayla Morgan, and I am a junior at First Colonial High School. This project was all about analyzing how my personal development proved the information provided by the major developmental theorists. The motif that will tie in myodevelopment is that of my favorite movies and television shows as I grew up.
4: Birth to age five | Cognitive: At first, I was in the sensorimotor stage of development, learning reflexes and honing in on skills that I learned at birth. Then, I moved onto the preoperational stage. In that stage, I learned language skills and how to play pretend. | Moral: In the beginning stages of moral development, I was intent on obeying rules and following direction. On the other hand, my main goal was also to serve my personal needs ahead of everyone else's.
6: Birth to age five | Social: In the beginning years of my life, social development was all about learning who to control and when to take responsibility for my actions. | Physical: Physical development was largely motivated by tuning into fine motor skills and being able to function normally overall.
8: Age six to twelve | Cognitive: still in the pre-operational stage, I was very egocentric. At the end of this age group, I hit the concrete operational stage where I could comprehend concrete logic but nothing abstract. | Moral: from ages 6 to 12, my main priority was obeying societal norms and appearing nice outwardly. Obeying authority also became prevalent in this time.
10: Ages six to twelve | Social: my social skills in this age group requires learning to rely on more than just my parents and learning new life skills. With the wrong encouragement, I could've developed self esteem issues | Physical: My physical development became much more centered around being active and growing into my body. I hit my growth spurt during this time.
12: Adolescence | Cognitive: At this age, cognitive development is very much developed. I have a solid grasp on both abstract and concrete ideas, and problem solving comes with ease. | Moral: At this point in my life, moral development is not so much set on rules as it is on valuing the differing opinions and beliefs of others, which is a very important step.
14: Adolescence | Social: Social development during adolescence is focused on developing a sense of self-reliance and a means of real productivity. I became much more independent. | Physical: As could be expected, adolescence is the stage where bodies really begin to develop as a result of hitting puberty.
