    | Would recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend taking CHAD 60: Child Development to anyone who expresses interest in working with children in the future. The course displays a wide range of criteria such as the development of children from birth through adolescence. While there are required service hours for this course, the experience one gets with children will never be forgotten.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights of the course include easy to grasp concepts regarding child development, as well as amazing volunteer opportunities and experiences. I learned much about the child's mind and how they perceive the world as well as how that perception changes and develops.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Make some free time for your service opportunities and study time.

    | Would highly recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this class if you are curious about going into child development because she is a really good teacher and makes sure you truly understand the material.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights of this course were learning all the little things that go into teaching a child that really affects who they will become in the future. It is quite amazing how people overlook​ the little things that they do that really do affect the children's futures.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Really study the study guides and participate in class.​

    | Would highly recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would most definitely recommend this course because it allows you to grasp on the general idea of child development. It also allowed me to volunteer at certain sites and really get myself involved with my major. Volunteering and working with children was the most satisfying part of the class, which is why I have told my friends to take it. So far, I have had 3 of my friends take the class, even though they are not Child Development majors, and they loved the experience. Not only is the professor great, but like I mentioned previously, this course allows you to learn through the books and through actual contact with children. For example, as we were learning about gross and motor skills in class, I would go on to my volunteering site and allow the kids to add on to what I was learning in class. Kids grow up at different rates and some may attain some skills faster which is why it is important to go to class and listen to the information the instructor presents. Futhermore, this class is a great introduction to child development and you will gain great experience from volunteering. It is a beautiful and fulfilling experience.

    Course highlights:

    I have gained a lot from this course. I am not a big fan of reading, but this class made learning so much fun and interesting. It captivated my attention in so many ways and I was always looking forward to volunteering. I learned what I want to do for the rest of my life while reading to 4th graders and helping them with their homework. I want to become an elemtnary teacher in the future and make a difference in their lives. Chad 60 allowed me to figure this out on my own, without having anyone telling me this is what I should do years from now. One example if that in class, I would ask my professor for help on how to treat the different kinds of personalities and she was of great help. I would go to my volunteering site the following day and put the advice to use and it was a success. I had a mentee who was struggling to keep himself focused and his behavior was not the best, but throughout the course of Chad 60, I learned that when children have a very short temper all they need is love and attention. Therefore, when I helped this little boy with his homework, I would also ask him how his day was going and simply ask him little questions that would let him know I was here to support him. Weeks later, we saw a big improvement in his bad behavior and it was all thanks to what I learned in class and how I put the information to use.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    One of the most important things I learned in taking this course is that you have to read the book. Word by word, it is essential to fully comprehend what you are reading. Also, if you realize that you are falling asleep with the book open, then you know that Child Development is not something you are interested in. However, if that is the case, then reading the main points and learning the different terminology will be helpful. I would also recommend watching videos on the different chapters in the book because visuals always allow us to learn. Some people learn by watching examples and some by reading, but in reality it is always helpful to have a visual image as you are reading or taking notes.
