Individual Learning Project

Paper instructions

I need to conduct one individual project analyzing a children’s book. I will need to apply child development principles to everyday life within your community and integrating multiple psychological concepts. Describe how your story concepts/narratives and ideas illustrate the theories we have learned in class. I must get at least two peer reviewed articles to link with and extend beyond class/text material .
PROJECT GOALS: Find a children’s STORYBOOK, and analyze positive child development aspects of it from a child psychology perspective. Discuss how the narrative of the book, or elements of the book help strengthen children’s development (in social, cognitive or emotional).
Select a children’s story (at least 8-10 pages or more) that you think should be read by children. Why do you think children in your community reach this book? (e.g., increases acts of altruism, reduces aggression and discrimination, etc.) Make sure to look at a few children’s stories in order to get an idea of which book you want to analyze. You can choose any book at any age level below 12 (but be sure to specify the target audience age in your paper and why you chose this age group).
The project will be submitted in 3 parts:
Part 1-Proposal:
• 1 paragraph proposal describing your potential book selection and choice of theory(ies) to be used and potential target population (must be children or parents) and why.
Part 2: Draft 3 page paper: a draft 3-page paper on topic.
Part 3: FINAL PRODUCT (4 to 5 pages final paper). Write a 4-5 page paper explaining (1) whether any of the acts committed in the story might be emulated by the readers of your community, (2) which events would have the created impact on the readers, given past research/theory, and (3) describe how your story concepts/narratives and ideas illustrate the theories and what we have learned in class. Make appropriate references to the textbook and articles you have read. Please note that you must be able to scan a copy of the book you are using so I can review it during the grading process.
Content:
• Identified the why this children’s book is important for that population
• Identified the appropriate child development principles. e.g. Effective and meaningful application of at least 4-6 concepts/terms covered in class readings or podcast.
• Link with and extend beyond class/text material are appropriate with “product”must have 2-3 peer reviewed references.
• Insights, comments, and interpretations
Clarity & Organization (20 points)
• Overall organization and structure of your project
• Clarity of explanations (use of examples, clear descriptions)
• Clear flow of information
• Spelling/Punctuation.

References to be used: find 2-3 peer reviewed references. Also, use 2 books reference below ( I attached pages in additional materials below)
1) Harwood, R. Miller, S. A., R. (2008). Child Psychology: Development in a Changing Society. John Wiley & Sons Inc.
ISBN: 978-0471706496
2) Shenk, D. (2010). The Genius in All of Us. New York: Doubleday/Random House.
For now, I need to do only part 1 of the project ( 1 paragraph) proposal describing your potential book selection and choice of theory(ies) to be used and potential target population (must be children or parents) and why. No special format needed. I need to make sure that professor likes the choice of books, references and theories I made. If the professor approves the proposal, I will proceed with parts 2 and 3. If professor requests to make changes, I will add all necessary instruction to proceed with parts 2 and 3.
I will attached book pages with the theories we have learned so far. Select the necessary theories you find important and related to the children’s book you find.
