(2010). Adolescence (9 th Edition) . Boston: MA: McGraw Hill. ISBN: 978-0073532035 Prerequisites : CHES students must have successfully completed HDFS 2113 or 2114. Non-CHES students who have completed PSYC 2583 (Developmental Psychology) or EPSY 3413 (Child and Adolescent Development) may take this course. Transfer students should see Dr. Criss about appropriate prerequisites. If you do not have these prerequisites, you will be dropped from the course. Course Description : The course focuses on the development of the adolescent physically, socially, emotionally, and intellectually with an emphasis on sexuality, vocational choice, the search for identity, and interpersonal relationships. Course Objectives : 1. Identify and describe the biological, psychological, and social changes that characterize normative adolescent development. 2. Identify and describe the primary interpersonal and contextual influences on adolescent behavior. 3. Identify and describe the ways in which the individual, interpersonal, and contextual factors common to adolescence intersect and relate to adolescent problem behavior. 4. Become familiar with the research approaches and designs used to study adolescent development. Requirements: Integration Paper (IP; 40 points): For this 10-page paper, you will review and integrate 4 empirical articles that examine some aspect of adolescent development. The two IP components must be submitted using the dropbox function on D2L. None of the components will be accepted in person or via e-mail. Each IP must be completed individually and must be your own work. Any evidence of collaboration (e.g., copying), outside assistance, plagiarism or any forms of academic dishonesty will result in an “F!” for the course and will be reported to university officials. Please refer to the IP Handout for further details and deadlines. Exams (40 points each): There will be three non-cumulative exams that will be given this semester. The exams will cover all assigned readings, lecture material, handouts, and videos. Each exam will consist of True or False and Multiple Choice questions. The final exam will not be comprehensive but will cover the last portion of the course material. All exams will be machine-scored. If an exam is returned for hand scoring, 5 points will be deducted from that exam score. For each exam, you must bring a #2 pencil; the scantron sheet will be provided. Your exam will NOT be scored unless you show a photo ID. Any evidence of cheating on the exams will result in an “F!” for the course and it will be reported to university officials. Grading Summary:
