What You Need to Know
This week, we move from changes in middle childhood to the turbulent, yet exciting, stage of adolescence.

Physical and Cognitive Development

The majority of physical changes from childhood to adulthood occur during adolescence. Following chapter will cover these changes such as body growth, brain development, and sexual maturation. You will also read about the impact of advancing cognition on adolescents and major characteristics of formal operational thought.

Chapter 11, “Physical and Cognitive Development in Adolescence,” pages 296–327.
Emotional and Social Development

The emotional and social development for adolescents can be equally as significant. Read your textbook to learn about Erikson’s viewpoint on personality attainment of adolescence, Kohlberg’s theory of moral development, and the four identity statuses.

APA Style: Special Cases

Now that we have covered the basics of formatting citations, let us look at some of the special cases that can arise.

What if There Is no Author?
Use a word or two of the title in place of the author’s name.
Example: Citations are the best thing since sliced bread (“Fun Citations,” 2019).
Occasionally “Anonymous” will be listed as the author; if so, use it.
Example: Some people are shy (Anonymous, 2019).
What if There Is an Organization That Is Listed As the Author?
Use the organization in place of the author.
Example: Do not quote, paraphrase (Good Authors Committee [GAC], 2019).
What Do I Do if My Author Is Citing Someone Else?
If you use the names of the authors in the citation:
Freud said psychology is cool (as cited in Jones, 2019).
If not mentioned in the sentence:
Psychology is cool (Freud, as cited in Jones, 2019).
