Please answer and label the questions accordingly. This is a critical thinking, graduate level essay. The three questions are separate therefore please do not combine the three questions together. For example: Q1, Q2, with in-text citation from course reading material (Kroger and Scharf) and Two Additional scholarly references. APA style formatting. In addition, in the event my professor requires addition clarification in regards to what have been written, I will forward to you the question(s) from my professor therefore please answer the question(s) accordingly. Thank-you.
Q 1: Think back to your first job as an adolescent or young adult. Describe the job and how it affected your self-esteem, feelings of accomplishment, peer relationships, and parent-child relationships. If you are uncomfortable describing your background, you can describe another person’s experience. Compare your own reactions (or someone else’s) to the article you found for this unit.
Q2: Choose one or two issues related to academic achievement and discuss how these issues relate to adolescent development. You can focus on success or failure within the school context. Be sure to bring in information from the article you found for this unit.
