Two part Blog Post:
Referring to the peer review process for student websites, please state three changes you would recommend for your peer’s website and justify reasons for those changes.
Citing the text for specific supportive evidence, name one positive aspect and one negative aspect that influenced your adolescent development.
The first recommendation I would make for my peers website is to change the color scheme. The orange color of the link and titles does not contrast well with the white background, creating too much strain on my eyes.
The second recommendation for her website is the inclusion of a resume. As an employer looking at a potential worker, a resume is a must.
The third recommendation for my peers website is some information on the landing page that indicates what the website is about. Currently on the landing page is the blog role, however, without some contextual assistance the information in the blog role means nothing to someone visiting the website that doesn’t already know what it is.
One positive aspect of my childhood was my choice of peer selection, or who i surrounded myself with. (Broderick, p. 374) I had surrounded myself with friends that cared enough about high school that they were not willing to skip classes and insure that their homework was completed. Because of this, my peers had a positive influence in my own behaviors as I was working to imitate their own successes, an aspect of peer influence. (Broderick, p.388)
Also during my childhood, I spent a lot of time at my moms house outside the authoritative parenting style of my father. My mothers parenting style was more permissive and I was allowed to freely do what I want as long as the consequences did not affect her. This resulted in me making more risky behaviors (Broderick, p.389) than I usually would have taken under my fathers supervision.
