This course will cover physical, cognitive, and social/emotional development while emphasizing the scientific and theoretical basis of each milestone discussed. You will learn to identify and describe various themes that permeate the study of child development (e.g., nature and nurture, the active vs. passive child, continuity and discontinuity, mechanisms of change, the sociocultural context and individual differences) and apply these themes to the various aspects of cognitive, social, emotional and physical development. By the end of the quarter, you will be able to appropriately apply the results of psychological research to questions about child care, education, social policy, and child rearing. Required Text Seigler, DeLoache, & Eisenberg (2006). How Children Develop (2 nd Edition) .

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
