Week 7 – Assignment: Critique Current Research on Child Development

For this assignment, assume that you have been asked by an inner-city charter school to write an article for its quarterly magazine on recent research on child development. Begin by selecting five studies to include in your article. The goal of your article is to justify your choice of the selected studies to the parents by demonstrating that all basic ethical principles, including respect for persons, have been met. Be sure to address the following in your article:

  • Demonstrate that participants were protected from harm and their decisions were respected.

  • Explain how the research you used ensured the well-being of all participants.

  • Ensure that the outcomes emphasized fairness in any distribution of benefits. Most important, however, is your ability to demonstrate that ethnic minorities were included as subjects.

Be sure to write the article, using an informal tone that is appropriate for an audience of parents. Please note that you must still document your sources using APA format.

Support your assignment with your five selected scholarly resources. In addition to these specified resources, other appropriate scholarly resources, including seminal articles, may be included.

Length 4-5 pages, not including title and reference pages

Your assignment should demonstrate thoughtful consideration of the ideas and concepts presented in the course by providing new thoughts and insights relating directly to this topic. Your response should reflect scholarly writing and current APA standards. Be sure to adhere to Northcentral University's Academic Integrity Policy.
