Syllabus Adolescent Development 333 section 01 – Spring 2014 Version 01-20-2014 Who Instructor: Estelle Mayhew Instructor email: [email protected] TA : Kris Mescher TA email: <[email protected]> The TA is in charge of copying and grading the exams. The TA will have the physical exams. If you wish to see your exam (and this is a very good idea) then you must visit the TA during her office hours. If you then wish to discuss the exam with me, Kris can send it to me and we can go over it together. Bring your review question sheets (the answers you prepared to the review questions) when we discuss the exam, so we can see how your preparation for the exam can be tweaked. When/where Location: Lucy Stone Auditorium Time: Tuesdays & Fridays 8:40-10:00 pm Office hours instructor: Tuesdays, 12:30 – 1:30 pm Office location instructor: Room 229, Tillett Hall Livingston Campus Office hours TA: Fridays, 1:00 - 2:00 pm Office location TA: Tillett 629 Note on email If you ask a question for which the answer is in the syllabus or in the announcements on Sakai, I will in all likelihood NOT reply to your email. If it’s a minor issue, ask me before/after class. On other issues, I will try to get back to you within 3 days. Any emails sent at unearthly hours may not get read before class period, keep it in mind. Also, please remember to SIGN (that means first and last name) your emails. I don’t know, nor will I expend any effort to find out who [email protected] is. You also need to indicate in EVERY email WHICH CLASS and WHICH SECTION you are in, as I have 800+ students in several different classes and sections. If you forget to indicate your name, your class, or your section I am unlikely to reply to your email. (this applies all the way to the end of the semester).

What The goal of this course is to examine adolescent development. We will look at the basic changes that take place in adolescence (physiological changes, changes in thinking, changes in social interactions), the context within which these changes take place (adolescents in family, peer, school, work and community environments), and the psychosocial areas in which development takes place (achievement, autonomy, identity, intimacy), we will briefly look at psychosocial problems in adolescence. We will also look at how the research is done in this developmental field. Required Readings Available at the Livingston bookstore (1) McMahan, Ian. (2008) Adolescence. 1st edition. I realize this book is expensive, as all college textbooks are. I honestly don’t care if you rent it, or get a second hand copy, the loose-leaf version, some international edition that officially isn’t supposed to be sold in the U.S., or whatever. I do care that you get the book, or to put it differently: PLEASE get the book.

    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.
