Referring to the peer review process for student websites, please state three changes you would recommend for your peer’s website and justify reasons for those changes.
Citing the text for specific supportive evidence, name one positive aspect and one negative aspect that influenced your adolescent development.
In reviewing my peer’s website, I have developed the following suggestions for changes to make for the website: it would be beneficial for my peer to include his first and last name on his website as he has a very broad name and the employer should know that they are looking at the right person’s page. Second, my peer should include an “about me” section so the employer can learn about the person they are looking into for the job. Lastly, it is recommended that my peer create his own personal heading as opposed to using the default so his page is more personal and fitting to his character.
Peer influence was a huge part of my social life growing up. My parents were authoritative, but I always concluded that I could do as I pleased because I made good grades and was a “perfect child” at home. However, peer influence turned south when I entered high school and I chose to hang out with the wrong crowd. It was as if my “friends” had a hold on me and I felt like a queen any time I was around them even if we were up to no good. I would say this was a hard negative in my adolescence phase.
My parent’s involvement in my life was a huge positive for me growing up. They were authoritative as mentioned above. Despite my wrongdoings and the people I chose to be around, they remained by my side explaining choices and consequences throughout everything. I made some terrible decisions growing up and I knew my parents were deeply disappointed, but they continued to be a parent which is what was needed.
