The Impact of Life Experiences on Development

Choose four events from your life which you believe had a significant impact on your development. There must be at least one event from childhood, one from adolescence, and one from adulthood; the fourth event may be in any one of those three stages.

For each of the life events selected, do the following:
Describe the life event as age-graded, history-graded, or non-normative.
Explain how it was significant to your development and why, including how it impacted or changed you cognitively, psychologically, and/or socially.
Explain how each event and its associated changes influenced your identity development through your lifespan.
Support your statements with developmental theory and integration of knowledge you gained throughout the course. This should include the text resource and at least one additional peer-reviewed article for each event.
