Nature and Nurture Influences on Child Development [CLOs: 2, 3]. Due by Day 7. For this written assignment, read Chapter 1 of your textbook and watch the videos from McDowell and Pollack:  McDowell, M. (n.d.). What is nature vs. nurture? [Video file]. Retrieved from http://video.about.com/genealogy/What-Is-Nature-Vs--Nurture-.htm  Pollack, S. (n.d.). Nature vs. nurture in child development [Video file]. Retrieved from http://www.howcast.com/videos/513307-Nature-vs-Nurture-Child-Development The debate regarding nature vs. nurture and how it impacts child development has been ongoing for centuries. This debate is concerned with the extent to which particular aspects of behavior are a product of either inherited (i.e. nature) or environmental (i.e. nurture) characteristics. Throughout history, researchers have often envisioned nature and nurture as separate and opposing influences. Today, developmental theorists increasingly agree that nature and nurture are interdependent, working dynamically together, in child development (McDevitt, 2010).
