Not too easy. Not too difficult.
This course is a required course for Education majors but if it was not, I would still recommend this for any education major or anyone who would like to work with children. This class focuses on child psychology and how to work with children within the class. Bergin was very passionate about what he was teaching and he taught it with great examples so all the big words would make since in relation to you and the classroom.
I learned about the whole child and child psychology and how as a future educator, I will need to be able to understand my future students on different levels. This course allowed me to make connections with what I was learning in my class to a field experience in an elementary classroom.

Advice for students:
For anyone considering this class should consider if they want to work with children. Advice about the course itself is to go to class, attendance/participation in class counts towards your grades. On top of going to class, pay attention in class and take notes because lots of what is discussed in class is on exams. Speaking of exams, they are not hard if you do the readings because even though you pay attention in class there will be questions on exams that will cover things from the readings. There are two papers that are focused on apply what we learn in class to your field experience so make sure you make connections while at your field experience.
