Explain the macro or broader perspective of where your journey starts and what the issues are within the community you serve.

Prepare a 1,350 word (not including title page or references) academic paper in APA format that presents evidence for and application strategies around creating a program in the setting of your choice that addresses some sort of developmental concept you find fascinating. Introduction This portfolio work project will allow you to present your findings academically and showcase your ability to design and implement a strategy that will benefit individuals and, hopefully, society in general. Scenario You could be an educator, a community leader, a business owner, a parent, or serving in any role where application developmental concepts can make lives better. Your Role In your role at the organization of your choice, you have been charged with understanding how people’s developmental stages can both hinder and aid in their experiences, and how to best utilize developmental principles related to those you serve. You may see that certain developmental principles are being violated are not properly understood by those who serve your community of interest. You must develop a program, protocol, a resource, or training that will lead to a genuine change in how individuals are served in the developmental context, within the community you want to serve. Requirements Use information from the material presented in this class, the Foothill College library, any additional credible resources like journal articles, university studies, non-profit organizations, and government resources to create an analysis and program design that includes the following: Set the stage for your project at the societal level. Explain the macro or broader perspective of where your journey starts and what the issues are within the community you serve. In other words, what is the background of your population as it relates to this objective? Where is your group today versus generations prior regarding these principles? What is the setting for people today, and what are individuals up against at the societal level? What has been the emotional and personal cost been of this dynamic? How might society benefit from a program that addresses these concerns within the community you serve? Is it merely that certain costs would be avoided, or would this unleash new potentials for life and society? For example, Common Core has been criticized for years for not being developmentally appropriate for younger learners, especially in the areas of literature and mathematics. Certain texts are being taught much earlier then they used to be, and many educators have expressed concern about introducing too mature literature at too young an age. Additionally, mathematics is taught differently now, and at earlier ages. Is this a developmental concern? What can you find out and what can be done about it? Bring your topic to the individual level. Explain the micro or personal perspective of your topic. How does this impact the individual? What are some ways that society can help or hurt the individual concerning your topic? How do individuals today perceive themselves with these objectives? What are the potential struggles and limitations of individuals managing this process? What are the potential benefits to the individual if this objective was achieved? What is the long-term outlook for the individual concerning should a program like this work? Detail the art and science behind what you would build? What are the developmental concepts, and how do these impact an individual’s mind, psychology, and personality? What are some of the main physiological limiters? What does science suggest regarding achieving these goals for the individual? Detail the proven techniques from the literature? Find a program that has implemented these findings or other strategies to impact people’s lives, attitudes, and behaviors. What have the challenges been for this program or group? What have the unforeseen impacts been of a program like this? No program is perfect, so what have the failures been? What further research needs to be done within these areas for your program to be maximized? Explain the program you wish to develop, and how would it be unique to the population you hope to serve? For example, maybe there is a great program to model yours after for that has been developed in Texas, where there are different cultural and financial supports to something you would build in California. How might those challenges be dealt with? Conclusion: end your paper with a compelling conclusion paragraph These requirements serve as a form of rubric in the sense that if you address in detail, with credible sources, these concepts, you will receive full points.
