What is the meaning of emerging adulthood?
What are the expectations for an emerging adult in your culture?
Compare and contrast the expectations and roles of an emerging adult in the different cultures.

From your Instructor:
Attached is a presentation that will hopefully help clarify how to find the resources you need for this assignment. Make sure that you are looking in the Media Library, and not just the standard UoP library.
The number of appropriate videos in the University Library is limited; therefore, you only need to have a minimum of one UoP video. The other two resources can be our textbook and/or peer-reviewed scholarly journals (no websites, blogs, other books, YouTube, etc.).
