Children development


You, yourself, will develop a Test including 30 Multiple Choice Questions and their Answers derived from the Textbook Reading. Three questions will

be developed from each of the Ten Chapters. If your edition does not have a Chapter Ten (and the 5th Edition doesn’t), then use the Appendix as

Chapter Ten. In addition to indicating the answer to each question, you must also include the page number in the Text that you used to develop the

question. Each question should have a grammatically correct statement or question followed by five optional choices (A through E), one of which one

will be indicated as the correct answer.

ONE annotated citation, which is simply the Class Text, will be included at the end of the paper. The annotation should reflect one thing you learned

from the Text that you thought was worthwhile or at least interesting. For more details on how to write an annotated citation, see the discussion and

samples provided in the Class Requirements Section CD 361 Online. The Thirty Question Test with the Answers and Page Numbers, and the annotated

reference will be sent to the instructor both as an attachment and as text copied and pasted directly into an email message.
