the following: racism, prejudice, institutional prejudice and racism and
stereotype; based on what you know about these terms, what do you think is the
origin of racism, prejudice, institutional prejudice and racism and

3. You are a developmental social–psychologist;
overindulged same sex (female) bi racial (Black and Chinese) parents of new
born fraternal twins (boy and girl) want you to help them to create a
developmental plan for their new babies.
The plan should focus on social and emotional development, physical,
cognitive, and moral development. While
your plan should mention each area of development, for the purposes of this
quiz, you are only required to give substantial detail for one area. Nevertheless, for the areas of development
that youdid notchoose, be sure to give the parents the name of the
theorist most associated with that area so that that they can conduct
additional research on their own.
