This paper will allow you the opportunity to apply the information that you have learned in class to the “real” world. Given your new expertise in developmental psychology, a magazine has asked you to write an article for the June issue. The editors want you to convey scientific information to a lay audience (i.e., people who have never taken a developmental psychology class before).
Many parents wonder whether they should expose their children to one language or two. Discuss how early exposure to a second language affects children’s biological, cognitive, and linguistic development. Describe the best practices that parents could employ to promote second-language learning and identify any pre-existing biological constraints.
Be sure to support your arguments with material presented in lectures, and other sources that you find. The magazine article should be no longer than five double-spaced pages with 1-inch margins written in 12-point Times New Roman font. You must use APA style when referencing and have a reference section at the end, but you do not have to adhere to any of the other “rules” of APA (e.g., running heads, manuscript headers, etc.). Both content and creativity will be rewarded, so you are encouraged to consult other magazines to see how articles are written.
