Research Paper Prompts
Paper Option 1 – LEARNING AND MOTIVATION
Many parents face challenges with their adolescents’, including engaging in risky behaviors, lack of academic motivation, and poor parent-adolescent relationships. We know that adolescents learn behaviors through various socialization and motivational processes. What kind of parenting advice would you give such parents based on the theories we have discussed? How would you help parents understand what their adolescent is going through and how they can help their adolescents thrive? Consider the perspectives of various theories, including bioecological theory, self-determination theory, expectancy-value, human values, and social cognitive theory (e.g, agency and self-efficacy) in explaining and supporting development. In your paper, explain both the theory behind what may be happening with such adolescents and practical suggestions on how to improve behavior.
Paper Option 2 – IMPACT OF SCHOOLING ON DEVELOPMENT
Adolescents spend a lot of their time in school and their development is heavily influenced by the school context. Discuss how parents, teachers, and/or peers, within the school context, influence various domains of development. You may touch upon multiple domains of development or focus on one domain in your paper. You may focus on any developmental period in adolescence and any type of schooling environment (e.g., late elementary, middle school, high school, starting college). Be sure to integrate various theories of learning and development into your discussion.
Paper Option 3 – POVERTY AND DEVELOPMENT
Poverty can impact many domains of development. Discuss how various aspects of poverty relate to one or more domains of development (e.g., identity, motivation, self-regulation, cognition, psychosocial). For example, how does poverty influence cognitive development or psychosocial development? Think about the context of poverty broadly, including the family and neighborhood context and the pathways by which poverty affects development of your selected domain(s).
