Interview Assignment
Assignment Description
This assignment is intended to allow you to closely examine various stages of the lifespan and compare them to developmental theory surrounding the physical, cognitive and emotional/social development of human beings. Due to the differences of maturity and life experiences among individuals, you will need to ask questions that are appropriate and reasonable to the life stages of each interviewee. Refer to relevant textbook chapters for subject matter. You will be expected to formulate questions surrounding relevant concepts and theories and ask them in such a way as to elicit valuable interview responses that hopefully provide you the opportunity to bring validity to the textbook material. You will also be expected to explore how culture has impacted their development.
Select a person who fits one of the following:
A parent of a child six years old or younger,
An adolescent,
An emerging adult,
Someone in middle adulthood,
Someone in late adulthood
Ask your chosen subject if they would agree to participate in an interview that will last approximately an hour to an hour and a half. Explain that you are working on a project for your class and that all information will be confidential.
Begin the interview by telling the subject that you will be asking some questions, but he or she should feel free to expand on the topic or talk about related ideas. Also make sure your subject knows that they can choose not answer any question, and that they can discontinue the interview at any time if they feel uncomfortable. Either record the session (with your subject’s permission) or take thorough notes.
If a subject’s answers are too brief or uninformative, follow up with questions like, “Can you say more about X?” or “How do you think X affected Y?” If something the subject says seems important, make sure to follow up. We will discuss other interview tips in class.
Remember, you are interested in your subject’s life and ideas. Do not involve yourself in a conversation, offer advice, or talk about your own experiences during the interview, except as a way of encouraging your interviewee to talk.
Your written paper should include the following:
Introduction—Who are you interviewing? Why did you choose this person? What were the time, date, and location of the interview? Any other relevant and/or interesting background you wish to add.
Body— Make sure to ask at least two questions related to the big ideas of physical, cognitive, or socioemotional development for whatever age/stage you have chosen. You will use the Q & A format, which requires that you write questions and answers out verbatim. For example:
Q. What advice were you given about how best to feed your child in the first year?
A. It is typical in my culture, and in my family, for mom’s to breastfeed so I knew I wanted to follow that tradition and that I would have a lot of support.
Conclusion—Reflect on the interview process and on how the subject’s responses to your questions related to what you are learning from the relevant chapters of the text and other course material. Describe the interviewee’s response in detail (you can quote directly from the interview). Explain how their response correlates with our textbook and course content. Highlight the relevant key term, concept, or theory in bold; your conclusion should address four to five big ideas from the text, and be relevant to all areas of development. Also make sure to examine evidence of cultural practices or cultural development. Explain at least four elements of their culture, as discussed in the text, that may have played a part in their development.
This accurate reference to the text is required for a successful interview; you can only receive a passing grade if you thoroughly and accurately address the relevant aspects of the text and other course content in your conclusion.
Relevant SLOs
Assess the biopsychosocial changes that take place during each life stage.
Compare the different scientific approaches to studying developmental psychology through the analysis of interview responses and observations.
Compare and contrast the different behavior and mental processes of individuals throughout each life stage.
Articulate the multidirectional, multi-contextual, multicultural and multidisciplinary life-span perspectives.
Implement and explain the importance of understanding lifespan development and its significance toward establishing a quality life.

1. Your paper should be formatted in the following way: 12 pt. Times New Roman font, 1” margins, double-spaced, 8-10 pages long (not counting the required works cited page), with no cover sheet. Use MLA parenthetical citation format. If you are unfamiliar with this citation format, visit Purdue University’s Online Writing Lab (Links to an external site.) for a brief introduction.
2. This research paper will build off the work you have already done in a Unit Writing Assignment. Begin by selecting one of your Unit Writing Assignments(Epictetus’s Enchiridion, together with its “key passage,” as the basis for your research paper.
You must write about one of the four assigned primary texts in our course (Epictetus’ Enchiridion, Hume’s Enquiry) using the PDF version of the primary text given in our course. Writing about any other topic or using any other texts will result in an automatic zero for the assignment.
3. The body of your paper should consist of the following clearly labeled subsections.

A. Introduction
Write an introductory paragraph that introduces your chosen philosopher and includes an easily identifiable thesis statement.
a. Your thesis statement should summarize, in a single sentence, your paper’s argument.
b. Your thesis statement should clearly identify the “key passage” you have selected from your primary text.
c. Your thesis statement should explain (in general terms) why your selected passage is a “key” to understanding the whole of that primary text.
B. Historical Background
Based on your own research, write several substantial paragraphs (approximately 1 page total) that give relevant biographical and historical information about the author of your primary text and the world in which that author worked.
a. This subsection should answer questions like: Who is your philosopher? When and where did they live? What kind of training did they have? What were the major events in their lives?
b. Find and cite at least two reputable secondary sources (books, journal articles, encyclopedias, etc.) for the information gathered and summarized in this section. Use MLA style parenthetical citations.
C. Philosophical Background
Based on your own research, write several substantial paragraphs (approximately 1 page total) that give relevant information about the philosophical ideas most important to your philosopher.
a. Answer questions like: What were the main philosophical contributions made by your philosopher? What topics and questions interested them most? What other philosophers or schools of philosophy influenced them? What were their major published works? What influence did they have on the work of the philosophers who came after them?
b. Identify two three of their best known ideas.
c. In particular, identify two or three of the main philosophical themes of the particular text that you are writing about.
d. Find and cite at least two reputable secondary sources for the information gathered and summarized in this section. Use MLA style parenthetical citations.
D. Key Passage
Introduce and cite (in full) the passage you have selected from the primary text (either Plato’ Apology, Epictetus’ Enchiridion, Hume’s Enquiry, or Thoreau’s Walden) as a “key” to understanding the whole of that primary text.
a. The “key passage” should be approximately 150-250 words.
b. Write a short paragraph that supplies context for this passage: from which section of the primary text is your passage taken? Who is speaking? What question is this passage addressing?
c. The “key passage” should be cited using MLA style parenthetical citations but, in this case, it is sufficient to give the title and the page number. For example: (Walden, 18).
E. Analysis of Key Passage
E1. Drawing on the work you’ve already done in your original Unit Writing Assignment, write a paragraph (approximately 150-250 words) that identifies the main idea of the key passage you selected from the primary text.
a. Clearly state the main idea of your key passage in the paragraph’s topic sentence.
b. Identify the reasons given in the passage in support of this main idea.
c. Include citations from your key passage that provide evidence for your argument.
E2. Drawing on the work you’ve already done in your original Unit Writing Assignment, write a second paragraph (approximately 150-250 words) that explains why, in your view, the selected passage is a “key” to understanding the whole of that primary text.
a. Clearly state your reason for choosing this passage in the paragraph’s topic sentence.
b. Explain how this key passage helps us to better understand the whole of that primary text.
c. Connect your explanation to the main themes of the author’s work that you already identified in section C on philosophical background.
d. As needed, include citations from your key passage that provide evidence for your argument.
F. Supporting Passage

After reviewing Lectures 1 & 2 (PDF attached) and the textbook readings in Chapt

After reviewing Lectures 1 & 2 (PDF attached) and the textbook readings in Chapters 1 & 2 (Also attached as a PDF), explain what you think the obligations of a person would be if they witnessed someone being attacked. That is, each of these evaluative positions explains the obligations a person would have if faced with the Kitty Genovese case study presented at the beginning of Chapter 1 in the Pojman text. Which gives the strongest motivation to act? Do they all give a reason to act in the same manner? Give a brief explanation of the impetus for each reaction.
If the reason for one’s reaction to a person being murdered is the same in all three instances of religion, the law, and morals, explain why they are all the same with reasons and examples supporting your position; however, if you find that they are different, explain why they are all different with reasons and examples.
IMPORTANT: Both lectures and text point out that there are similarities and differences between religion, the law, and morals. Each entails valuations of right and wrong action
