Write a 2-3 page scholarly examination of two different theoretical viewpoints including strengths and weaknesses related to Head Start’s work with children, and develop 7-10 PowerPoint slides from that paper that highlight the most relevant information for Head Start teachers and staff.


Note: Child development occurs in a specific sequence. Therefore, the assessments in this course are presented in sequence and must be completed in order.

The place of theory in the study of childhood development is to provide useful frameworks for application to actual people and situations. Theory about how children develop has changed over the years. The demand to demonstrate evidence-based practices is increasing. With these factors in mind, you will critically review material in terms of its continuing usefulness to the field.

The major theories of child development have created the foundation for current knowledge in the field of child psychology. These theories include many perspectives: psychoanalytic, humanistic, cognitive, learning, information processing, and ecological systems. Many well-known theorists have contributed to the field of child psychology, including Sigmund Freud, Erik Erikson, Lev Vygotsky, and Jean Piaget, to name a few. You will begin to think about how the developing child may be shaped by his or her environment and biology; whether development is a continuous, smooth process or a process of moving from stage to stage; and what part the child’s own personality characteristics play. You will examine theories of child development and explore their relevance in today’s world. Theory, research, and clinical applications are viewed today through a sociocultural lens (contexts that until fairly recently have been overlooked), which may partly determine the applicability and longevity of theory over time.

The field of child psychology has undergone a period of dramatic expansion. New understanding about how the brain continues to develop after birth and how the child’s physiology interacts with his or her sociocultural context has increased our understanding of child psychology. This evolving knowledge can be studied with respect to traditional developmental theories. Professionals who work with children are now in the role of providing education and guidance about how to apply this information with the goal of supporting children’s optimal development.


Note: Child development occurs in a specific sequence. Therefore, the assessments in this course are presented in sequence and must be completed in order.

The director of the Head Start program you work for has called you into a meeting. She requests that you provide a 2–3 page theoretical framework to guide the work Head Start does with children and to share with the staff, and create 7–10 PowerPoint slides to accompany the framework. In your assessment, you are to provide a general overview of the major tenets of two selected developmental theorists (for example, Vygotsky, Bronfenbrenner, Bowlby, Erikson, or Piaget) including the major strengths and limitations of each selected theorist. Be sure to note how your selected theorists address relevant background factors such as culture and genetics.

  • Is there a possibility of plagiarism in my completed order?

    We complete each paper from scratch, and in order to make you feel safe regarding its authenticity, we check our content for plagiarism before its delivery. To do that, we use our in-house software, which can find not only copy-pasted fragments, but even paraphrased pieces of text. Unlike popular plagiarism-detection systems, which are used by most universities (e.g. Turnitin.com), we do not report to any public databases—therefore, such checking is safe.

    We provide a plagiarism-free guarantee that ensures your paper is always checked for its uniqueness. Please note that it is possible for a writing company to guarantee an absence of plagiarism against open Internet sources and a number of certain databases, but there is no technology (except for turnitin.com itself) that could guarantee no plagiarism against all sources that are indexed by turnitin. If you want to be 100% sure of your paper’s originality, we suggest you check it using the WriteCheck service from turnitin.com and send us the report.

  • I received some comments from my teacher. Can you help me with them?

    Yes. You can have a free revision during 7 days after you’ve approved the paper. To apply for a free revision, please press the revision request button on your personal order page. You can also apply for another writer to make a revision of your paper, but in such a case, we can ask you for an additional 12 hours, as we might need some time to find another writer to work on your order.

    After the 7-day period, free revisions become unavailable, and we will be able to propose only the paid option of a minor or major revision of your paper. These options are mentioned on your personal order page.

  • How will I receive a completed paper?

    You will get the first version of your paper in a non-editable PDF format within the deadline. You are welcome to check it and inform us if any changes are needed. If everything is okay, and no amendments are necessary, you can approve the order and download the .doc file. If there are any issues you want to change, you can apply for a free revision and the writer will amend the paper according to your instructions. If there happen to be any problems with downloading your paper, please contact our support team.
  • Where do I upload files?

    When you submit your first order, you get a personal account where you can track all your orders, their statuses, your payments, and discounts. Among other options, you will have a possibility to communicate with your writer via a special messenger. You will be able to upload all information and additional materials on your paper using the “Files” tab on your personal page. Please consider uploading everything you find necessary for our writer to perform at the highest standard.
