Understanding the potential effects of life factors and events on the development of the individual Lesson 7 Learning Outcomes of Unit 4 You will be able to: 1. Identify and define the stages of growth and development through the human lifespan, 2. Identify, define and apply the potential effects of life factors and events on the development of the individual, 3. Identify and define the physical and psychological changes of ageing. Case study Read through the case study on page 146 b1 and answer the three questions asked Nature versus nurture debate The nature versus nurture debate focuses on the argument on whether: We are born the way we are i.e. People are born evil hence why they commit crime, Or The way we are brought up and our surroundings make us the way we are i.e. This child is aggressive because he was brought up in an aggressive environment. Determinism Determinism is the belief that your future is fixed or determined either by what you have genetically inherited or by your social environment and experience, Choice and interaction The alternative to determinism is the belief that people can take control of their own lives through the choices they make (free will), Some people believe that everything is fixed by nature or nurture or that everything is a matter of choice, However, you must take into consideration that human life course involves an interaction of nature, nurture and the decisions and choices that people make. Biological programming Genes provide the instructions for structuring amino acids which in turn influence the proteins within our body cells thus programming chemical basis of our biology, Our body shape, size as well as our behaviour depend on the interaction of our biology with broader environmental, A human being is the result of the interaction of genes (biological programming) and the environmental influences they are exposed to. Maturation theory Some aspects of development such as the ability to speak a first language are thought to be due to an inbuilt genetic process, Children naturally become interested in sounds and signs that they see around them and the ability to speak unfolds, The impact of the environment on this ability is crucial as the learned language or communication method is the one used within the environment, Thus the environment always interacts with a person’s genetic inheritance. Research In your table groups create a questionnaire which you will use to find out about people’s assumptions Feedback Story-Time Re-tell today’s lesson as a story. Ensure you have a beginning, a middle and an end.
