Read the case study below and use your problem-solving and social and self-awareness skills to help a coworker work through a difficult situation.


Gloria recently graduated from college and started a new job. Her coworkers seem very nice, and Gloria has gotten to know Lakeisha and Reggie the best.

Reggie is a friendly older man who often talks about his plans for retirement in five years. He likes to make people laugh but often jokes about his struggles to learn new programs and technology. 

Gloria and Lakeisha have been assigned to work on a project together. Lakeisha is very organized and has prepared a list of to-do items along with due dates. She even color-coded the list to indicate which partner will do each item. Gloria, who is more laid-back, feels a bit uncomfortable with this micromanaging from Lakeisha, who has only been at the job a few months longer than she has. Gloria wonders if Lakeisha thinks she is either lazy or stupid, and she does not look forward to working on this project. In the past, Gloria attempted to communicate her feelings with a coworker; however, her coworker told Gloria that she needed to put her feelings aside and just do the work assigned to her.  As Gloria ponders having a conversation with Lakeisha, she starts to feel overwhelmed and thinks she might have to ask to be removed from this project.  

Still, she and Lakeisha have connected because they are both single mothers of teenagers. Gloria confides in Lakeisha about her 16-year-old son who has started making poor choices and is currently grounded for sneaking out of the house and getting drunk at a party the night before a big exam.

The company recently informed the team that there will be a compliance test on new safety policies, which employees will need to pass in order to keep their jobs. The company has provided materials to study as well as optional practice exams. Gloria and Lakeisha have signed up to take the first practice test. Reggie, however, jokes that he will probably wait until the night before the test to read the material. As the date of the test approaches, Reggie becomes increasingly nervous. He makes frequent comments about how hard it is for him to learn a different way of doing the jobs that he has been doing for years, joking that “you can’t teach an old man new tricks.”

  • Gloria’s son is making poor decisions. Given what you have learned about a) brain development and b) social development in Chapter 3:
    • Explain why Gloria’s son is making those poor decisions.
    • Discuss specific strategies Gloria can implement to help her son make better choices.
    • Use specific concepts related to development and self-regulation to explain why these strategies would be effective.
  • Reggie is demonstrating a fixed mindset. How is Reggie’s mindset affecting the way he prepares for the new compliance test?
    • Use brain plasticity (neuroplasticity) to explain how Reggie can start to develop a growth mindset.
    • Suggest study strategies for Reggie so that he will be prepared for the compliance test. Use specific concepts from Chapter 4 to explain why these strategies will be effective.
  • Consider Gloria and Lakeisha’s different approaches to the project. On which of the Big 5 personality traits do they most differ?
    • Give advice to Gloria on how she can use emotional regulation and cognitive reappraisal to work with Lakeisha.

history plays a significant role in shaping the values that drive this country. Of course, much of what history reveals to us is that the past is littered with much abuse of peoples, which might help explain why such treatment of “others” continues today. However, as bleak as that picture may seem, the country was founded on some ideals that, in spite of these “smudges” on our reputation, have powered through and helped the nation evolve to some degree. Women have the vote; equal rights have helped the once disenfranchised opportunities denied to their ancestors; peoples have acquired positions of power and influence – and invoked change – both through specific groups and in representative positions of both local and federal government. Obviously, recent events have shown that we are still debating what America values.


So, without having to dabble into that quagmire of said current events, look at an issue we’re exploring in this class that you find intriguing and dig a little deeper – or dig in a new direction entirely – into the history about it to see what else you can reveal about the matter. Consider yourself to be a humanitarian on the hunt for what has been revealed, or concealed, about what really happened to the colonists, Native Americans, African-Americans (slave or free), homesteaders, or cowboys. Focus on just one of these groups and a specific issue; the more specific you are, the more effective your argument will be.

Your paper will consist of two parts:

  • The first part of your paper (about four to six pages) should be an exploration of the issue in depth; this exploration will include a minimum of four outside sources from the library databases. You may use one source from our course that fits the issue you’re writing about, but the other four must be of your own discovery.
  • The second part of your paper will be your assessment of why all this happened, who or what is to blame (as well as deserve credit), and how this issue might be a factor in current perception today. Since your assessment should be about two or more pages, be sure and explain your rationale fully and point to specifics from your exploration to help validate what you are asserting.

Do not worry about the sources for the evidence, I will add those. The topic I chose to write the essay about is something along the lines of, “The fear and greed of white colonizers led to years of injustice against the Native Americans.” Please make a thesis that sounds something like that. Does not hav to be perfect because it is a rough draft.

Instructions: This assignment requires you to conduct an interview-specific to late adulthood. You will then be required to submit an essay, whereby you present a summary of your findings and supporting information related to the concepts that apply to that developmental period.

Please interview (in person, over the phone or virtually) a senior citizen age 65 or older in order to understand the concepts outlined in Chapters 10-11. It may be a friend, acquaintance, family member, or any other willing participant.

You will need to construct a list of questions you wish to utilize in the course of the interview. At least half of them should be open-ended questions. I will not provide prescribed questions, as the nature of the relationship with the interviewee will often influence the questions you feel comfortable asking. I recommend that you prepare an outline of the applicable Chapters to determine what types of questions you are comfortable asking. Then, use that information to compose a list of questions. They should be questions of interest to you, which can be directly related to concepts discussed in the textbook.
