Not too easy. Not too difficult.
This course was an excellent introduction to Adolescent Development. Professor O'Toole has real-life experience working with young children and adolescents, so having someone so experienced teaching us was insightful and educational. The assignments were meaningful, and now, as an intern, I find myself using the knowledge I obtained in this class in real-world applications. The course is especially relevant if you are heading for a degree in education or counseling.
I learned about the physical, social, emotional, and biological development of adolescents and how their development affects their interactions with others in the present and in the future. Also learned were effective classroom management technqiues.

Advice for students:
I would inform them to get started on work early and to take advantage of the notes provided on quizlet, as they proved to be extremelyhelpful while taking exams. Read the content prior going to class and take notes on the powerpoints that are provided prior to arriving at class, as this will help you to engage and listen in class.
