PSY 357 Week 2 Assignment 2: Gene-Environment Interaction Paper (Benchmark)



Topic:
Prenatal and Infant Development


 

In a
reflective paper of 250-500 words, describe how Sandra Scarr's three types of
heredity-environment interactions apply to you.

 

One trait
should be discussed for each of the three interaction types (see the following):

 

  1. Passive: What kind of
    environmental experiences did your parents provide for you because of who
    you were?


 

  1. Evocative: What environmental
    experiences did you have due to your genetic make-up?


 

  1. Active: What environmental
    experiences did you seek out due to aspects of your genetic make-up?


 

APA format
is not required, but solid academic writing is expected.

 

This
assignment uses a grading rubric. Instructors will be using the rubric to grade
the assignment; therefore, students should review the rubric prior to beginning
the assignment to become familiar with the assignment criteria and expectations
for successful completion of the assignment.
