Public Media: Adolescence OR Young Adulthood

Find an article in the public media (e.g., newspaper, magazine, radio, TV, web page) that relates in some way to the developmental stages we are learning about in Weeks 4 and 5 (Adolescence or Young Adulthood). Review the information and find the supporting evidence that was the basis for the article. Read the information in the textbook that signifies different stages of development (i.e., physical, cognitive, emotional, personality, etc.). Students may want to visit the DeVry Library and the sites provided in the Webliography tab for easy access to credible information. Your grade will be based on the following.
