Project #85873 - Applying Developmental Theory to Your Life:Bronfenbrenner's Bioecological Approach

ESSAY on Brofenbrenner:

There are 2 parts to this essay.


  • Think of a particular time in your childhood (only one age), e.g., age 5, age 10, age 15.
  • Use Urie Bronfenbrenner's bioecological approach to development (Chapter 1 in the Feldman text), to place yourself in a fairly complete developmental context. Write completely about the following five systems (label which level you are talking about when writing your essay):

    Microsystem: Describe:

    • Your family at that time
    • Your school and teacher at that time
    • Your peer group at that time
    • Your surrounding community at that time

    Mesosystem: Describe:

    • How your parents interacted with your peers at that time
    • How your parents interacted with your school and teacher at that time
    • Whether your parents helped with schoolwork at that time
    • How your community supported your school or activities (e.g., sports)

    Exosystem: Describe:

    • Your parents' jobs
    • Vacations you took
    • Whether there was a divorce in your family

    Macrosystem: Describe:

    • Your ethnic heritage
    • Your religious affiliations
    • Your social class (e.g., poor, working-class, middle-class, wealthy)
    • What was going on in the world at that time (e.g., Vietnam war, who was president of the United States, destruction of the Berlin Wall, etc.)

    Chronosystem:  Describe:

    • How a single historical event (supreme court decisions, wars, economics) affected your development at that time (or if there was more than one single historical event write about each one),
    • and/or How gradual historical changes going on at that time affected your development (e.g., the change in the number of women who worked outside the home; a change in the types of jobs available; a change from having no television to having television).


Using another developmental theory besides Bronfenbrenner's, explain how the theory applies to you at that time in your childhood.
