Paper details Applying Bronfenbrenner’s Bioecological Model
Think of yourself at a particular time in your childhood (e.g., age 10) – list that particular age AND what year it was (be sure to include this, regardless of the format option you selected). Using the model from Urie Bronfenbrenner, reflect about the following in format the format that you selected above. You may or may not have each subheading under the systems apply to your life at that point in time and that is ok:
your school and teacher.
your peer group.
the media – favorite TV shows, books, movies.
your surrounding community.
how your parents interacted with your peers.
how your parents interacted with your school.
whether your parents helped with schoolwork.
how your community supported your school or activities (e.g., sports).
your parents’ jobs.
vacations you took.
whether there was a divorce in your family.
your ethnic heritage.
your religious affiliations.
whether you lived in an urban (city) or rural (country) setting.
your social class (poor, working class, middle class, wealthy).
what was going on in the world at the time (e.g., Vietnam war, who was president, etc.).
how a historical event (such as terrorists attacks of September of 2001) or more gradual historical changes (the change in the number of women who work outside of the home) during the time frame that you are describing and how it impacted you.
