Start reviewing and responding to the postings of your classmates as early in the week as possible. Participate in the discussion by asking a question, providing a statement of clarification, providing a point of view with a rationale, challenging an aspect of the discussion, or indicating a relationship between one or more lines of reasoning in the discussion. Complete your participation for this assignment by Week 1, Day 7.
We began the study of human development by understanding that human development is more than just going from child to adult. Human development continues through the life-span, hence the term life-span development. Even though we look at human development across the life-span, there are still hallmarks or stages of human development that are considered distinct, especially in terms of psychosocial and physiological development.
Explain the main stages of human development and describe what you think may be the important hallmarks of each stage. Remember to utilize your course and relevant outside readings to support your assumptions.
Justify your answers with appropriate reasoning and research from your text and course readings.
