Growth & Development
General argument specific ideas evidence conclusion (use this structure)
o Every paragraph and sentence is associated with each other
o Take the first and last sentence of paragraph, and that you can understand the paper
The first sentence tells you what you are going to read about
The last sentence wraps it up and relates to the first question
The middle is the evidence
o Make sure sentences relate to each other!! Flow logically, make arguments fall into the next and
the next, find articles that have contrast (considering alternative ideas and explanations), having
black, white and grey, purpose a connection between the papers read, will include foresight
(how they connect), analyze each groups & contrast arguments (similar/different), then make
the similarities between what they are, and make recommendations for what they can
investigate in the future.
o Paraphrase when reporting!! …no quotations not even with evidence, don’t change the voice of
the paper.
o Thesis statement more than a fact, a why
Growth & Development: what factors affect G&D, looking through different life history stages, and how
patterns change in response to environmental changes
Somatic Growth
o Used because its easy to measure, reflects health status of individual, good indicator of
adaptation, body size is a trait
Utero is has a lot of critical events that will shape our life (most important in terms of G&D)
Overview, history & Basic concepts
o Georges L. LeClerc
Write encyclopedia on all known about natural history
The height distance or height-for age curve
First growth chart (oldest one we know of) measured from his son every 6
months until age 18
Normal vs. tall. Vs. short what is the frame of reference
Assessing G&D
o Whats normal
We judge our own parameters
o How people try to get a frame of reference: growth reference charts
o Each population has its own average range for height and weight
Ie: turkana children heights are below Canadas 50th percentile
Pattern of growth may differ (when young they are short, however at the end of growth
period they are as tall as we are), different growth spurts at different times
Increased mortality of the smallest individuals may contribute to the appearance of
catch up growth
o Height is just one of the several patterns in growth
Brain growth, grows very fast after birth
Tissues grow at different paces
o Growth is not equal to maturity
Maturity/development: increase in functional ability
o Biological & behavior/social maturity
Reproductive (somatic) maturity is sometimes reached before behavioral (brain)
maturity
