In this assignment for this week you will need to create a Prezi or PowerPoint that will highlight the important points of a theory that you will pick from this week’s reading and research. The selected theory should be one that has a significant influence in explaining development. An example of one such theory may be: Piaget’s theory of Cognitive Development, Erikson’s theory of Psychosocial Development, Vygotsky’s theory of Sociocultural Development etc. You will want to expand on your points from the discussion with greater detail in this assignment. The presentation will start with a short introduction of the theory, present some background information on the theorist/psychologist behind the creation of the theory, share additional interesting details about the theory such as the main focus of the theory, steps or stages within the theory and so forth and conclude by briefly explaining why you selected this theory as the best theory in explaining development. You will want to have a minimum of a seven slide PPT or Prezi. All references will be listed in APA format. Remember to cite your references to support the information shared within your slides. In case you have not made a power point prior- this is a link with information on how to do this- *****Piaget’s theory of Cognitive Development (do the slides on this theory)
