The “Big Question” being examined in this assignment is “How can human development theories be used to improve my understanding of myself and increase my compassion towards others?”
The audience for this paper are your peers who have not taken this course.
Ecological Systems theory provides a structure for understanding environmental influences on development overall and individually.
Considering how environmental influences have shaped your development:
- Describe each of the five environmental systems
- Provide one clear example of an environmental influence in your life for each system.
- Then, showing that you are integrating research, class readings, videos, and your notes, explain in your own words how each system influences your understanding of yourself and your compassion for others.
