Three Generations Project
This project involves interviewing three people, each from a different age group:
Early Childhood (age 4-6)
Middle and Late Childhood (age 7-12)
Adolescence (age 13-19)
Early Adulthood (age 20-39)
Middle Adulthood (age 40-64)
Late Adulthood (age 64 and older)
As a result of your interviews, you should be able to compare how subjects were similar or different in their levels of biological development, cognitive development, and/or social development. The back of this sheet has some suggested interview questions to ask. You do not have to ask all of these questions. Just pick a few that interest you and ask each subject the same questions.
You will give a five-minute presentation to the class telling about your interviews. Your presentation should include the following:
1. Who did you interview? (no names, just describe them) 2. How did you interview them? (in person, over the phone, what location) 3. What did you find out? (how were the age groups similar/dissimilar, give examples of how they responded to your questions) 4. What two or three important things did you learn doing this project?
You will be required to turn in a two-page paper (typed, double spaced, 12-point font) that discusses whether you believe each of your subjects are in Erik Erikson’s appropriate life stage. For example, if you interview an adolescent, what responses were given to show that he/she is in the “identity vs. role confusion” stage? Conclude the paper with a sentence or two about what you learned from doing this activity.
This project is worth 100 points. You will be graded on the following:
