Narratives will essentially be a story that you will tell about a character. It may be a biography of someone you know (Grandma!), famous person (Michael Jackson!), a cartoon (Scooby-do!) completely fictional character that you make up, or an amalgamation. In each Narrative, you will construct a narrative or story about your character demonstrating the character’s development as defined by the textbook reading.

Narrative #1
Narratives will essentially be a story that you will tell about a character. It may be a biography of someone you know (Grandma!), famous person (Michael Jackson!), a cartoon (Scooby-do!) completely fictional character that you make up, or an amalgamation. In each Narrative, you will construct a narrative or story about your character demonstrating the character’s development as defined by the textbook reading.
For each Narrative, you will write a section of the biography and incorporate developmental concepts or theories. The course and textbook are arranged chronologically through the developmental periods, and each developmental period is broken down into physical, cognitive, and socioemotional development. Each narrative will include several developmental periods. For each developmental period, you must incorporate a physical, cognitive, and socioemotional concept/theory. Work must be typed in 12 point Times New Roman font, double-spaced, and with one-inch margins.
There are 2 developmental periods, each period with 3 topics to cover, so a page-ish for each topic
Be sure to use APA format (cover page, in-text citation, reference page).
