Analysis Paper 1
Consider yourself within the context of the “ecological model” and discuss how this model has influenced your own development. I was raised in a middle class neighborhood with my mom and dad. My dad was an electrician and my mom was a civilian worker for the military. I was raised in the church and had a tight knit community. Please integrate that info in the paper.
You will recall from your reading of McWhirter et al. that development is the result of “interconnected and embedded ecological systems.” Refer to Bronfenbrenner’s “ecological model” and the “at-risk tree” to complete your discussion.
You will use your textbook and the Clinton et al. text as your references in addition to 2 other scholarly sources.
