Students are expected to be familiar with these responsibilities at all times. No member of the university community should tolerate any form of academic dishonesty because the scholarly community of the university depends on the willingness of both instructors and students to uphold the Code of Academic Conduct. When a violation of the Code of Academic Conduct is observed it is the duty of every member of the academic community who has evidence of the violation to take action. Students should take steps to uphold the code by reporting any suspected offense to the instructor or the associate dean of the college. Students should under no circumstances tolerate any form of academic dishonesty.” (The Code of Academic Conduct is located online: http://college.tulane.edu/code.htm ). Any student with a disability is encouraged to talk with the instructor at the beginning of the course. Adolescence is a transitional period in the human life span, linking childhood and adulthood. Understanding the meaning of adolescence is important because adolescents are the future of any society. Course Description This course examines salient issues concerning adolescent development. The focus will be on adolescent development as influenced by diverse contexts. Particular attention will be given to the challenges and strengths associated with adolescent development in New Orleans and other urban cities. The major purposes of this class are to heighten students' awareness of today's challenges, involve them in defining solutions, and build a basis of writing and critiquing scientific research on adolescents. We will address this purpose in several ways. In the classroom we will focus on typical developmental processes for diverse adolescent groups. Outside of class each student is expected to critique information that addresses specific areas of adolescent development. Additionally, students may add a Service Learning option to the course to examine translational experiences and research on adolescence. The course format includes lectures and discussion.
