Assignment 1: Final Project Theory and Topic Selection

This week, you will finalize your theory and topic selection for your Final Project Assignment.

To Prepare:
  • Think about the final project topic you selected in Week 1.
  • Select two theories you will address in your final project.
  • When selecting two theories, consider whether each theory could:
    • explain the origins and development of your topic
    • be used to develop strategies or programs to benefit human development relevant to your topic
    • address cultural differences or diversity considerations relevant to your topic
    • meet the characteristics of a good theory relevant to your topic
  • Keep in mind that the theories you select might not meet all these criteria; you will discuss the strengths and limitations of the theories as part of your final project.
By Day 7

Submit a 1-page summary of the topic you chose for your Final Project, the two theories you selected, and why you believe these theories relate to your topic.
