Concept Map

    No outside all definitions and items needed are in the textbook attached
    Initial term: Social Development

    The list of terms are:
    Identity, Internal Working Model of Attachment, Strange Situation, SelfEsteem, Personal Fable, Identity Achievement, Precoventional, Socialization, Prosocial Behavior, Moral Reasoning, Empathy, Cultural Differences, Family Dynamics, Parental Styles, Divorce, Maltreatment, High Quality Child Care, Family Structure, Same Sex couples, Internalization.
    Please choose at least 8 out of 20 terms from the list, and integrate 2 additional terms into your map (can be drawn from provided list, but do not have to be drawn from list). This will result in 10 parent nodes. Those parent nodes should have a total of 20 child nodes (distributed however you would like, with at least one child node for each parent node).
    Include 3 key people and 4 key experiments.
    Include at least 5 cross links.
    Label each and every link descriptively.
    Define vocabulary (at the least, vocab related to parent terms)
    Reference the rubric if you are unsure, or email me
    You have 24 hours to submit once you begin. Please reach out if you have any questions at any time.
    Creating a Concept Map

    Start with the provided initial node/term. This initial node is an overarching, major term or idea from which the following terms or ideas extend in a hierarchical or radiating format.
    Brainstorm the key ideas. Write them down. Use the list of required terms to help.
    Sort and classify the ideas, looking for relationships. It sometimes helps to put all the ideas onto post-it notes or cards to help you physically group the different concepts. These will become your parent nodes.
    Shift from a more complex (parent node/required term) to less complex idea (child or lower-level node that further explains the parent node/required term), or major idea to a minor idea. The vertical hierarchy established here often ends with an example or experiment.
    Transfer the ideas into your software of choice.
    Draw lines to connect concepts in the vertical hierarchy. Using a few words or a short phrase, label the line/link between concepts in the vertical hierarchy. The purpose of the line and label is to explain or illustrate the relationship between concepts.
    Look for cross links between different concepts. Cross links are connections drawn between one segment of the concept hierarchy or classification and another. These links are different from the links that connect the nodes in a vertical hierarchy these are horizontal connections between terms at the same levels to show how ideas connect across topics.
    Write a brief, 2-3 sentence reflection on why you organized the information in the way that you did. Graded on thoughtfulness and completion.
    Essential Components of Concept Maps

    Initial nodes are overarching topics and do not count toward your number of terms (e.g., Child Development or Biology).
    Be sure to include the required number of terms from the provided list. The required number will be noted on the list, but likely, 10 out of 20 terms. These are called parent nodes.
    Include an additional 5 terms (from the list or not) and label them as My Term. You can select any terms related to the three weeks of material.
    At least one child node from each parent node/term on the list is required (e.g., major experiments, key people, vocabulary, considerations, details, ).These lower-level nodes are more detailed points, becoming progressively more detailed as you move deeper into a topic. They further explain the parent node/required term.
    If there are 15 terms required, include at least 30 child links (1-3 for each required term).
    Within your nodes, you must include details on at least 5 key experiments (researcher, subjects (who), research question (what), research method/design (how), hypothesis (expected outcome), results, and interpretation (why it matters)).
    You must also include at least 3 people. Key people should be explained with at least the concept/theory/experiment that they are most well-known for (e.g., Freud psychoanalysis)..
