This paper needs to be 5 pages long written in APA format and needs to include your own personal history. Please include, when you know the information or can gather it, when you met developmental milestones, where you are now in the developmental process using what you have learned in class, and important factors in your life that might have had an effect on your personal development. Make sure to use what you have learned in class as a lens for writing this paper. I want to know that you understand how your own life fits into the stages of development you have learned about. That means I want to see references to the theorists and their theories as they relate to your own development.
For example: “When I was six(6) years old my parents got divorced, according to Erickson I would be in the Industry vs Inferiority stage of development and the emotional struggles I went through during this time made it difficult for me to be confident and try new things.”
Your essay should be typed, double-spaced with 1″ margins on all sides. You should use a clear font that is highly readable. APA recommends using 12 pt. Times New Roman font. You do not need to make an elaborate header for each page, just your name and the course name.
