Bucket List

In 2007, Jack Nicholson and Morgan Freeman starred in a movie called The Bucket List (Links to an external site.). They played two older men with terminal illnesses who happened to share a hospital room. While their lives were very different, they each had a bucket list of things they wanted to see or do before they died, so they went on an adventure together to complete their bucket lists.

STEP 1: Make a bucket list of at least twenty things (in rank order) of what you’d like to see or do before you die.

STEP 2: Considering your list, write a reflective essay explaining the most important things that you want to accomplish in your lifetime and why. Also analyze your bucket list in term of Erikson’s theory of psychosocial development (may refer to Unit 10) and/or Kübler-Ross’ model (refer to this Unit 11). Explain how completing your list would help you to positively resolve the stage of ego integrity vs despair or working through the Kübler-Ross’ model. Be sure to include specific examples of how completing items in your list (or not completing them) would affect how you resolve the stages. Keep in mind that how previous stages are resolved may also affect this developmental stage. Include detailed discussion of specific examples from your list. Also include some variables such as culture, race, class, gender, ability and discuss how they influence you, developmentally. use APA format for citing any sources.
