    | Would highly recommend.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    Definitely recommend. Professor Adolph is a brilliant and passionate teacher and you will come out of the classroom knowing so much more than you thought you could ever learn.

    Course highlights:

    Her lecture slides are posted online and you are allowed to use your laptop to take notes. She does a lot of work in motor development so she has a lot of personal stories and anecdotes to add to the material to make it more fun.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    She does not follow the textbook so YOU NEED TO ATTEND LECTURES! Also, take advantage of the TA's! She drops the lowest test score and the lowest paper score so GET THEM OUT OF THE WAY SO YOU CAN SKIP THE FINAL!

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course if you are interested in the development of children- or if you are curious about our own psychological develeopment.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights of the course was Dr. Melzi's own interest and personal references to the work. She really engages her students and makes the class both interesting and relatable.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    READ THE TEXTBOOK and GO TO CLASS. She goes over a lot of practice questiosn that might be on the exam.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Professor Adolph is a phenomenal professor. She is clear, passionate about what she teaches, and straight-forward about the structure of the class. The exams were not too hard, as long as you attend lecture and pay attention to what she calls "take-home points." The material was also very interesting, but I am biased, since it's related to a field that I want to work in. You don't need a textbook.

    Course highlights:

    I gained a better perspective about development, which is interesting since technically we are at an age where we are still developing (our brains). One of the highlights is that you learn about how Professor Adolph disproved the visual cliff theory that babies do not crawl over the cliff due to fear, which is a very popular study taught in most Psych 101 classes. Highly recommend this class and professor!

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Attend lecture. If you don't, the T.A.s are good at covering the material in recitation. For the paper, follow her instructions as carefully as possible, because they will mark you off for things as small as using the wrong font.
