Suggested Responses: Students should accurately present Erikson's theory regarding the struggle between feelings of competence and inferiority. They should discuss how children's cognitive and social development in the primary grades leads to more realistic and less positive evaluations of self, but that children's ability to succeed in various domains in their life contributes to positive self-evaluation. Students should explain that school-related factors, such as evaluative symbols, whole group instruction/comparison, and formal relationships with the teacher threaten positive feelings of self. They should comment on cultural factors, such as the development of inclusive views of self or cultural variations in criteria for evaluating competence.
