Essay Instructions: Use evidence from a minimum of six (6) essays from the collection THROUGH THE CHILDRENS GATE BY ADAM GOPNIK
In addition, you may turn to one outside text to help you develop or explain your theory.
this essay is to persuade usus of your theory?s efficacy. To do this, you must carefully lay out your evidence and reasoning, taking us step by step through the formulation of your claim. You also may want to reflect on the significance of what you've discovered at the end of the essay?how this writer?s viewpoint might be meaningful (or troubling) to usus in a larger context. ---SECret


Secret: Maps are constantly changing thus in a way that makes all theses maps useless
--these maps that Gopnik has and uses to guide his life and make decisions are constantly changing thus he can never really know what will happen because what he knows is constantly changing

--he makes decisions ex. To bring his children back to grow up in New York which he never had but what he knows about New York isn't necessarily what his kids really experience as they grow up here. He begins to see new york in a new way from his children

Use the essays in Through the Childrens gate to unfold this secret (above)


ADDITIONAL SOURCE --is A Field guide to Getting Lost by Rebecca Solnit -- only need one paragraph --helping to use this source to explain the secret or relate it some how

HERE IS SOME OF THE BOOK...

Citation (PAGE NUMBER) or Reference Essay title USE EXACT SPECIFIC QUOTES



Maps are a fiction of approximation as is memory ( talk about memory ? experiences and how they are changing)

Start talking about actual maps ? cartographer ? trying to do an impossible thing, go into depth about this rather then just talking about the literal job of trying to make a map of a constant changing city-Then talk about New York and then lead into religion

Attaching already written essay which you can use pieces from but need to restructure to make essay explain the SECRET stated above

Title: Premature Sexualisation

  • Total Pages: 7
  • Words: 2335
  • Bibliography:6
  • Citation Style: APA
  • Document Type: Essay
Essay Instructions: Task
Preamble

In May 2008, photographer Bill Henson opened an exhibition of his latest work. Part of the exhibition depicted naked pre-teenage boys and girls in various poses. The exhibition started an emotional national debate on artistic freedom versus the use of children?s images for commercial gain (or even more sinister reasons).

Task details

Your task is to respond to some of the key claims in Miranda Devine?s (Sydney Morning Herald, May 22, 2008) article with regard to the impact (on children and the wider community) of commercial and ?artistic? portrayals of children. Her main claim is that children are being sexualised in the media, and that there is ?overwhelming? evidence that this is damaging to children?s psychological development.

The article can be found at the following URL:

www.smh.com.au/news/opinion/moral-backlash-over-sexing-up-of-our-children/2008/05/21/1211182891875.html

Please note the aim of this assessment item is not to argue for or against the art (if you indeed see it as such) of Bill Henson. This is obviously an emotive subject, and we understand you will have strong beliefs about whether such photos are appropriate or not. However, the core task here is to assess Devine?s claim that there is ?overwhelming evidence of the harmful effects of premature sexualisation, particularly on young girls? (para 12).

Your assignment should cover the following:

1. What is meant by the term ?premature sexualisation?? In your definition, refer to the developmental and psychological literature (theories as well as studies). You may wish to include examples to illustrate your definition (300-400 words).

2. Assess the existing published, peer reviewed evidence of potential and/or actual psychological impact of ?premature sexualisation? (as defined in your report) on boys and girls, as well as the wider community. In this section, you must cite at least four (4) peer-reviewed articles. What I mean by this is articles published in scholarly journals (I have given you a large number of examples earlier in this subject outline). What I do not mean by this is reports freely available on the internet. For example, the report by Emma Rush entitled Corporate Paedophilia is not a peer reviewed resource. This is to say nothing about its quality, and you may well wish to discuss this report. However it will not be included as one of your four publications (approx. 650-800 words).

3. A conclusion that summarises your argument and comes to a conclusion in relation to the danger posed by premature sexualisation (200-300 words).

Presentation

Referencing and presentation must conform to APA convention (6th Edition, 2009). You should, at second year, be reasonably conversant with the APA Publication Manual yourself. However, the University has compiled a very good guide to the APA (see http://www.csu.edu.au/division/studserv/learning/referencing/). I recommend you read it. Quotations from any source MUST be appropriately referenced as such (see pg. 118 of APA manual). Subheadings may be used to organize your points. Do not use bullet points under any circumstances. Typeface should be 12 point Times New Roman (or any other well-recognised font, with 1.5 or double space lines and at least 2 cm margins so I can write comments on it when marking.

.

Rationale
Rationale
Moral arguments with regard to community standards may be important and valid. However, they are highly variable, with both sides of the debate invoking moral imperatives in defense of their position. One the one hand we have the moral imperative of free speech and artistic expression; on the other side we have the moral requirement to protect children. This exercise is designed to provide experience in sorting opinion (however impassioned) from evidence; and make evidence-based contributions that might assist a public enquiry in reaching a decision. The importance of these analytic and information literacy skills in becoming an effective professional cannot be overstated - especially in developmental psychology and childrens' services, where rhetoric frequently overshadows reasoned and evidence based debate.

Marking criteria
The evidence you present should consist entirely of primary resources (such as peer-reviewed articles or specialized developmental texts). Avoid general textbooks (such as your PSY202 text) as these are all secondary sources. After all, if they can read and cite Piaget or Vygotsky, so can you. You will identify dozens of articles and other sources but be selective and discuss about six peer reviewed articles (in addition to your references on theory in development) - this is only a short piece and we are more interested in your ability to interpret and analyse the literature on childrens? psychological development than try and ?blind? usus with an exhaustive list. The first step to good analysis of the literature is the appropriate selection and use of relevant material.

Do not cite websites, general texts (i.e Western) or news articles as evidence. Use websites and other reports (like Dr Rush?s ?Corporate Paedophilia?) as a step on the way to tracking down the original sources by all means, and perhaps make limited reference to their conclusions in your final statements, but what we are really after is the primary evidence. You?re being assessed on your interpretation of the science, not someone else?s.

  • Document Type: Research Paper
Essay Instructions: A number of children (up to age 16) are breaking the law (theft, vandalism, breaking curfews, drug/alcohol abuse, etc) with few or no consequences to themselves or their parents. Some communities, in an effort to deal with this apparently increasing problem, are considering holding parents responsible for their childrens actions; a community in Oregon recieved national attention when it passed a law holding parents responsible for their childrens actions. Parents may be required to take parenting classes or fined as a result of their childrens actions. Should parents be held responsible for their childrens actions? To what extent? Should there be laws to enforce such responsibilty? (If you answer yes to the first question and no to the third, what do you suggest as an alternative means of enforcement? How else can communities handle parents who refuse to take responsibility for their actions? Consider obligations, moral ideals, and concequences. Present your position as effectively as you can.
