PostSubject: u01d2 Nature versus Nurture   Tue Apr 12, 2011 10:01 am

Since the 17th century, when John Locke proclaimed that the mind of a
child is a blank slate, the debate about whether nature or nurture has
the strongest influence on development has raged. Most psychologists now
look for ways to account for both influences in their practices.
After reviewing your text and the additional readings and resources,
and conducting some independent research of your own, offer your opinion
regarding the nature versus nurture debate. Do you believe that we are
more a product of our genes, or of our environment?

Include in your discussion how parents transmit genes to their
children, and how genes and the environment influence development.

In your answer, include the following:

  • Either: Refer to and integrate ideas presented in
    the text and supplemental information. Cite the textbook at least twice
    within your discussion.
  • Or: Cite at least one scholarly resource from the
    Capella library to support your discussion. Do not use Internet Web
    sites such as Wikipedia.
Follow APA style rules for citing references.
You will be evaluated on how well you can demonstrate that you
understand the ideas presented throughout the unit, including assigned
readings, discussions, media and independent research. You will also be
evaluated on the quality of your work—its academic rigor, how well it
shows your ability to think critically, and how completely it covers the
discussion topic. Refer to the Discussion Participation Scoring Guide
in the Resources below to learn how your discussions will be evaluated.

Response Guidelines

Respond to at least two other learners in a manner that advances the discussion in a meaningful way. Your response is expected to be substantive in nature and to reference the assigned readings, as well as other theoretical, empirical, or professional literature to support your
views. Cite your sources using APA style.
