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.
