Checklist for the assignment. Use this to make sure you have all the parts.
To get you started, I’ve written stories for each. I’ve included the definitions to help you understand the point. Do not include definitions in your posts.
Definition. Bulimia nervosa is an eating disorder consisting of eating large amounts of calories and then purging them by vomiting, taking laxatives, or both so as to not gain weight. Sometimes instead of purging, the person fasts to purge the calories.
Example. The key point is bulimia nervosa. Sarah, who is 18, locked herself in her room with a gallon of chocolate ice cream. She sat on her bed and ate the whole gallon. Soon after she finishes the ice cream, she goes to the bathroom, hangs her head over the toilet and vomits so she doesn’t gain weight. This is not an uncommon behavior for her. Several times per week, she’ll eat a massive amount of calories and then purge. When she first started binge eating, she had to put her fingers down her throat to induce vomiting. But she has done it so many times that she can just think about it and she’ll purge all that she ate. She has not told anyone what she does and as far as she knows, no one is aware of what she is doing. Recently, she searched for bulimia on the internet and read about the side effects. This scared her and she is now thinking about telling her mother and asking for help. This is a story about bulimia nervosa because Sarah binge eats and then purges through vomiting to prevent weight gain..
Definition. There are two kinds of adolescent egocentrism – imaginary audience when adolescents are concerned that everyone is staring at some self-perceived flaw and that they are being judged for it; and personal fable – when adolescents believe they are unique and invincible. You have to choose one of the two for your story.
Example. The key point is adolescent egocentrism and I chose personal fable. Seventeen year old Jamal is driving on the freeway faster than the posted speed limit. He is passing cars regularly. In a few miles, traffic slows down and the passing lane is not open for him to pass. However, he’s determined to pass the slow traffic. He begins passing on the shoulder while still speeding until he is around the slow drivers. He doesn’t think twice about the potential danger in his behavior because he believes he is an excellent driver. He’s so good that he can control his car in these circumstances. Passing gives him a rush and he doesn’t think anything bad like an accident will ever happen to him. Things like that only happen to other drivers. This is a story about Elkind’s personal fable because Jamal believes he is invincible, can drive recklessly, and that nothing bad will happen to him.
Definition. The social clock consists of a set of cultural norms that tell us when we are supposed to pass major milestones in our life. If we are in line with the social clock, we are said to be on-time. If not, we are said to be off-time.
Example. The key point is social clock and I chose off-time. Thirty-four year old Albert is currently working part time at a fast food restaurant. Since graduating from high school, he has never had a full-time job. For the first few years, he was living with his parents. When he moved out, he starting staying with friends and sleeping on their couch. When he outstays his welcome at one friend’s house, he moves on to another. He is not looking for a full time job and is happy with his life. He is not married and has no intention of getting married in the near future and maybe never. This is a story about Albert being off-time on the social clock because because in our culture most people his age have a full time job, are living on their own and most are married.
