Summative Assessment: Middle and Late Adult Profile
Generativity Magazine liked your personal profile and would like you to write another profile about an inspirational figure. Imagine this person was inspirational based on what they did during their middle and late adult stages.
This is a research based assignment, based on the inspirational figure you choose for this assignment. This paper must be written entirely in Third Person, from a research perspective. Any use of First Person in this paper will result in a deduction.
Write a 700- to 1,050-word profile of the middle and late-adult stage inspirational figure. Complete the following in your profile:
Discuss what your chosen individual has done that represents their generativity.
Examine how their actions reflect their perspective of experiencing these stages of life.
- Apply the following concepts to your chosen figure’s experiences:
Generativity aspect of Erikson’s midlife stage
Generativity versus stagnation
Integrity versus despair
Explain what you’ve learned from this individual.
Does he/she motivate you to do more with your life, particularly as you get older?
Discuss how generativity contributes to a sense of immortality or integrity.
