Not too easy. Not too difficult.
This is a required course for all Lynch School of Education students at Boston College. But with Miriam Heyman, it is a course that teaches the practicals of human development. There is note taking from slides and a lecture, but she also gives us real world practicals. There is reading from outside of the textbook that can help fill the holes that may come up in lecture. But she does start lively discussions in class, and she makes the material fun and easy to relate to.
The highlights of this course were definitely the different cultures we learned about. While many classes in child development focus on the milestones set by scientists and psychologists, this class also brought in different milestones from different cultures to make it more fun and not things we have heard a hundred times before.

Advice for students:
Keep on top of your reading, not just in the textbook but also on the books that you read in class. Don't leave all of the book reading to the night before the paper is due.
