Discussion: Adolescence

DISCUSSION: In this discussion, reflect upon and discuss ONE of the following questions:

  • Q1: Which of Marcia’s four identity stages do you believe that you are in at this point in your life? Explain your reasoning.
  • Q2: Give an example of adolescent egocentrism that you have experienced in your own life. Explain.

STEP 1: First, write a response with at least EIGHT substantial sentences, integrating concepts you learned from the reading and other materials (include links with necessary). Show that you can think critically on the topic by integrating your own thoughts, analysis, or experiences.

STEP 2: Return to the discussion to comment on at least TWO classmates’ posts (in at least FIVE sentences). Expand on a classmate’s comments in a value-adding, topic-related way. Promote a collaborative, supportive community, and advance the dialogue through follow-up questions. Reply posts cannot be one-liners, off-topic posts, vague statements, unsupported opinions, inadequate explanations or simply say, “I agree” or “good job.”
