    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    I recommend this course specifically if you are pursuing a degree in childhood education or want to work with kids in the future. The professor is extremely helpful in helping you learn the material and answers questions quickly and thoroughly. This course focused on theories of childhood development and how to implement these theories into the classroom.

    Course highlights:

    I gained knowledge of theories that correlate directly with how children learn, why they act they way they do, and the readings gave me insight on how to act around children in a learning environment. The class discussions gave me ideas on how I wanted to run my future classroom one day.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Watch every video the professor posts online and participate in the online discussions! The discussions are where you and other students trade information on personal experience, tips for the classroom, and helping answer questions on theories.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This is a hands-on, child development, college-in-the-high school course for students thinking about working with children or going into education. We have learned about the developmental stages that children go through as they learn and grow as elementary students. I had the good fortune to be paired with an occupational therapist in a local elementary school. I want to be an occupational therapist in a children's hospital and I got hands-on experiences helping children use tools to allow them to be more successful in their everyday lives. This class has helped me learn more about how to directly work with, help and connect with children.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights were my practical experiences working directly with students in an occupational therapy setting in an elementary school. I learned about sensory integration disorder and tools to use to help children meet their needs for either deep input or to minimize input. Tools such as yoga balls, therapy putty, and trampolines to help sooth a high sensory child. I learned about using headphones with children who need less auditory stimulation. I leaned about modifying environments to make areas more calming to children experience sensory overload. The highlights of the course was the opportunity to connect with and engage with children in an occupational therapy setting. I have built positive relationships with children and feel like I have made a positive impact on their healthy development.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    I would advise you to attend the class and the practicum regularly as you can directly see how the experiences you have with children are connected to the developmental stage in which they are developing. It is important to look and act professional when attending your practicum. This is the first step to a future career working with children and any positive connections you can make will be important as you continue your path to a successful career.
