Virtual Child Assignment and Paper During the course of the quarter you will be raising a virtual child. For this assignment, you will be focusing on birth through age 12. Although the virtual child can be raised through age 18, for this class, you can stop at age 12. Please note that you do not have this option with real children. While it is possible to raise your child from birth to age 12 in one sitting, it is not recommended. Even virtual children take several hours to raise (Yes, I tried it). Therefore, I have suggested dates for completing portions of the assignment throughout the quarter. This assignment is designed to assess learning goals 1 “Articulate how the child and the child’s contextual experience combine to influence development,” 4 “Develop oral and written communication skills,” and 5 “Apply course information to your life.” The process of raising your child goes as follows: 1. Access your virtual child via REVEL or (you will have to pay about $50 if you are purchasing the program separately from the textbook). The REVEL text contains access to the Virtual Child. If you have bought the REVEL text, DO NOT purchase an additional virtual child. I will explain how to access your Virtual Child in the REVEL text. 2. Enter the required information. Please use your real name so that I can give you credit for completing this assignment. 3. Enter information that determines your child’s characteristics and personality. 4. Start raising your child by answering multiple choice questions. 5. The system will provide you with information about how your child is progressing. You can adjust your future parenting accordingly. However, just as in real life, you can’t go back and change your answers. So, choose wisely and honestly. 6. At certain points, the system will ask you to answer open-ended questions. These are for your own reflection purposes only. I will not be reading them. However, in order to move forward, you have to answer them with at least a sentence or two. The more thoughtful and reflective you are during this process, the more it will help you to write the paper component of this assignment. 7. When you get done with age 12, you can stop, but you can keep going if you wish. 8. Keep in mind that I will not be grading you on the degree to which you have raised a “good kid.” Instead, you will be given 10 points for completing the task of raising your child through age 12.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
