<Faculty comments here>

Thank you for this assignment. I have reviewed your work and added in my comments throughout; please see them and let me know if you have any questions.

Each orientation makes different assumptions about human development (for example, is development nature/nurture, continuous/discontinuous, individual/context-specific, driven internally/externally). Understanding these larger orientations is important before you dive into the specific theories of human development (like Freud, Bandura, Piaget, Bronfenbrenner) and learning more about physical, cognitive, and psychosocial development across the lifespan.

Choosing a Topic
The first step I followed this week was to review the 5 steps involved in choosing a topic to submit for approval from my professor, which are listed in the PSY7013 course assignment post for week 2 (NCU, 2014). While I have used similar steps in the past, I have never specifically followed each step, step-by-step before but I did so this time and found it helpful in keeping me on topic with ample research to review. For example, I thought about a topic relevant to my profession by browsing through the required textbook for this course, began researching a general topic in the NCU library, found some articles applicable to my topic, took some notes on the articles that I think will be of use in the future, and then narrowed down a topic of interest to me.
