lectures. These short outlines merely provide you with a general organizational tool and you will need to fill in important details for which you will be responsible during lectures. Course Description SJSU Course Catalog Description : “Psychological development of children from conception to adolescence, including perceptual, cognitive, personality and social development. Outside activities may be required. Prerequisite : Psyc 001 (General Psychology).” Specific Course Description : The purpose of this course is to provide a survey of the field of developmental psychology by examining the development of children from the prenatal period to adolescence (with a focus on infancy through middle childhood). The lectures will mix chronological descriptions with a general topical approach (i.e., sometimes lectures will focus on age-related issues and events and at other times lectures will examine specific topics as they might affect someone across various age levels). The required text and lectures will be the main source of information. The readings and lectures will sometimes coincide; however, there will also be unique information from each source (i.e., required readings and lectures) for which you will be responsible . The class will emphasize the typical course of development but will also include some information on atypical developmental processes. You are expected to complete assigned readings before each class meeting. Course Goals and Learning Objectives
