We know that both genetics and environment have an effect on human development. We have genetic tendencies, but we are also influenced by factors such as the environment and parenting style. Choose a factor—such as IQ, autism, ADHD, or addiction to drugs or alcohol—that is influenced by both nature and nurture. Then discuss your beliefs on how much each of those sides influences your chosen factor. Back up your viewpoint with a least one example of current research or an expert opinion.
Your short paper should demonstrate an understanding of the topic, as evidenced by discussing the required critical elements, sharing your opinion, and applying current research. Analyze the topic, integrate text and reference material into the short paper, and apply course concepts into your discussion. Demonstrate your critical thinking ability by giving your thoughts and opinions on the topic, and explain why you hold those beliefs.
Specifically, the following critical elements must be addressed:
· Nature versus nurture for a chosen factor
· Application of current research
· Critical analysis
Guidelines for Submission: Use at least one reference in addition to the course textbook. It must be from a reliable source, such as a journal or a professional association or university site. Follow these formatting guidelines: one to two double-spaced pages, 12-point Times New Roman font, one-inch margins, and references in APA format at the end of the paper.
