We all have came to an agreement that the checkpoint is basically going to be on several situations encounter from psychological, ones self being of growth, the theory, mentor, and fear of society. We all plan to do interviews with people, utilize multiple forms of media to get a more accurate results and bring in self experiences to support the writings. I will be discussing the psychological affect development that juveniles face as they enter into the adulthood. Especially when somebody or something prevents progress and impedes a road to a long line because of different behaviors. This would bring Jake on the subject of whats the importance of a positive male figure in a child’s life, and the positive/negative impacts that come out of having/ not having one as their mind matures. Shovonie questions the theory of your product of your environment in which Oscar agree to the social sign of stigma of the aggregate of surrounding things, conditions, or influences of an individual. Such as Nyna explaining the differences and similarities of manhood and rights of passage in America and South Africa as a influence of adapting ones environment. All of these will bring Victor to discuss the fear and respect that people face in which both Wes Moore had to encounter several obstacles and deal with different upbring as they both found their path to walk. The relations that we all face has some similarities and differences that need to be consider analyzing.
