create two documents for parents of minority teens 1) A 9–12-slide PowerPoint presentation (complete with speaker’s notes) and 2) an accompanying 1–2-page
handout/flier in Word document or PDF format. Be sure that both illustrate the following:
1.Describe common rites of passage from two cultures around the world and compare them to a common American rite of passage. Possible resources might include National
Geographic and the Argosy University Online Library.
2.Compare and contrast these rites to common US rites of passage. Do they coincide with the physical, cognitive, or socioemotional changes taking place at this age
Describe which specific changes (physical, cognitive, or socioemotional) they coincide with. Does this explain their importance in a particular culture
3.How might such a social ritual, such as a rite of passage, influence the identity formation process of adolescents
4.In light of Erikson and Marcia’s theories, discuss how the process of identity development is affected when the adolescent belongs to a minority group (racial,
ethnic, sexual, or religious). Be sure to explain these theories and how they apply to identity development.
5.Summarize research from at least two peer-reviewed* studies on the effect of minority status on identity development, ensuring you describe the main findings of the
study as well as the research methods used to study the topic.
6.Apply the information you gathered from the online notes, textbook, and research articles to provide at least three practical recommendations for what the family,
school, and community can do to ease the process for adolescents.
*Peer-reviewed means an article from a reputable journal, which can be found in the Argosy University Online Library. Peer reviewed indicates that other professionals
in the field have reviewed and deemed it worthy of publication, in contrast to much if what we find online: someone posting something he or she wants to, without
someone else verifying that the research methods were rigorous enough and the study is valid. Use your textbook and course lectures as your primary resources, as well
as articles from the Argosy University Online Library. If you must supplement from a website, do NOT use .coms. Instead, look for .org, .gov, and sometimes .edu for
more reputable sources. Never use Wikipedia or about.com.
