Physical, Cognitive, Social and Emotional Development Report.


Report on the typical development of a selected age group across four domains (physical, cognitive, social and emotional) with examples of appropriate teaching and learning strategies. Provide research-based evidence, with appropriate citations in each response, to support your work.

  • Concisely explain what the term “milestone” means, and then for each of the four domains, outline (briefly explain) the key developmental milestones of a selected age group (early childhood, middle childhood, early adolescence, or middle adolescence).
  • For each of the four domains, explain what classroom implications (impacts / consequences) the milestones of typical development could have for teaching and learning in this particular age group.
  • For each of the four domains, describe one pedagogical strategy that takes into account typical developmental features. This pedagogical (teaching) strategy has been chosen because it will be directly applicable to the new skills / abilities / needs which children have, now that they’ve reached the new milestone. The strategy should also be applicable to the identified implication (impacts / consequences) identified in the second response. Ensure you use a different strategy for each of the domains.

General information:

  • Support your responses with evidence from the set textbook and other academic references.
    • Acceptable academic references are texts, research-based articles from scholarly, peer reviewed journals, and information from scholarly, government based or supported web sources (often with a designated purpose of supporting education).
  • Place all references on a single reference list, on its own page, at the end of the assignment.
  • Please present the assignment in paragraph form – without dot points (except in response one “milestones”), or tables, or images. Each response must have its own heading (e.g., “Part one”, or “Milestones”). You could also use basic sub-headings to provide clearly delineated elements in each response.
  • Paragraphs should follow the normal ‘rules’ (if not sure, please review).
  • Do not include an introduction nor a conclusion.
  • It is strongly recommended that you paraphrase and summarise information effectively instead of using any direct quotations from sources to demonstrate your understanding and make your work more original.

Word count:

  • 2,500 words plus or minus 10%. This includes all text (headings, in-text citations, and quotes). It excludes the reference list and cover page, which must be presented on separate pages.



  • Required format: 2.54 cm margins; size 11 or 12 font Arial, or Times New Roman;
  • All work (including the reference list) should double line spacing. Do not use single spacing.
  • Do not include a contents page, nor an abstract.
  • Include a cover page. Elements to include: Unit name, assignment number or name, your name, tutor’s name, date due and your final word count. Limit font size to 16. Ensure cover-page is simple and without adornment.
  • Please include a header (your name and unit code) and a footer (page number).
  • Submit your work as a Word doc. Do not submit a PDF.
  • Save your work to Turnitin using the following format: Surname_Firstname_Unit Code_Assess1.
  • Use APA (7th edition) format. It is important that both in-text referencing and end of text referencing are correct. This includes the setting out of the reference list as well as formatting for each citation.
    • Please remember that you must have a clear understanding of what academic integrity is. You must ensure that your writing has academic integrity: that all work is summarised or paraphrased well and that all work is referenced appropriately. Please use the Curtin APA guide.
