    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This is a great class that provides a strong foundation of learning for child development. You receive a lot of background information that will be used in your future courses. Many important theories are discussed throughout this class that are also expanded on in the coming years of your degree. If you are interested in finding out more about child development, or if it is the right major or minor for you this is a great class to be able to see what is best for you and your degree that you will be earning.

    Course highlights:

    I gained great insight in to the world of child development during this class. We began by talking about conception and prenatal development. Birth defects caused by substance abuse or alcohol consumption during pregnancy was talked about along with other physical and mental debilitations such as down syndrome, autism, cerebral palsy and mental disabilities. Theorist such as Piaget, Erikson, Vygotsky and Skinner were discussed in great detail. These theories carried us from birth through the teenage years. Each theory had the ability to be observed in a classroom with the desired age group that we were discussing.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Always, always, always do the reading ahead of time. It is more helpful to be hearing the information for the second time while your professor is lecturing about it. This gives you the opportunity to be able to ask questions and gain clarity for the subject. I am a good learner when it comes to making flashcards and it is helpful to be studying for exams and quizzes weeks before instead of trying to cram information in to the last few days before finals.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend it because it sets the foundations for a successful early childhood education degree. This class is built on during every single class that I am taking for child development. Many of these concepts that we are learning I am able to observe while being at work with all of the children.

    Course highlights:

    During this class I learned about important theories from Piaget, Erikson, Vygotsky, and Skinner. These theories carry you all the way from birth through the end of your teenage years. Early on in the course we touched upon conception and prenatal development, learning about birth defects due to substance abuse or alcohol consumption during pregnancy. Along with these we learned about possible disabilities such as down syndrome, cerebral palsy, autism, and other mental and physical debilitations. Each theorist was described and the many stages in each of the theories were elaborated upon with great detail by both the Hauser-Cram text book and our professor.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Make sure that you read the textbook and take notes outside and inside of class. Make flashcards and be sure to know each of the theories in detail and how they will pertain to each group of children. By reviewing your notes daily you will not have to cram in information before huge exams and quizzes. It is easier to study information over the course of several weeks rather than several days.
