Hi all, doing some essay writing, but I'm stuck. We have 3 topics to choose from:
Cognitive development (learning theory, Piaget, Vygotsky, information processing theories), language acquisition (stages of language acquisition, learning theory, Chomsky/LAD, social interactionist theory/LASS) or Life-span development (Erikson/psychosocial, Marcia/identity status, Levinson/life-cycle theory, adult life events, adjustment, etc).
We're meant to evaluate one. It's not a long essay, it's part of a bigger piece of work, so only 850 words. Language acquisition looks the easiest by far, then life-span (though psychodynamic stuff is always hard to evaluate), then cognitive, again, by far. Language has half the material size/required reading of the other two.
We're graded on knowledge, application of knowledge, use of information, communication, quality. But is this like English (where for GCSE we were told to do Catcher in The Rye if we wanted A*s) where it matters, or can I just choose the shortest one?
Which Psych topic should I write about for a Distinction?
