    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Dr. Kaiser is a sweet, encouraging, and education-driven teacher who helps make learning in this class so helpful and engaging. It is evident that she has a passion for psychology, especially the psychology of the human body. She knows her stuff and she is also an active psychologist in her community. She loves to share information about her family and relate it to the topic. She also makes sure we do group activities to keep our brains and our bodies active during the lecture. She invites questions and does a great job with answering them. She is so helpful!

    Course highlights:

    I learned a lot in this class. I learned (and remembered) at least 10 things from each of the stages of human growth and development. The highlights of this course were definitely her lectures altogether. Her lectures are always engaging and her tone of voice makes you want to hear more. She always shares videos the involved her kids and relates it to the topic. Her powerpoints are also easy to understand and are filled with information. You will definitely learn in this class and it will be fun!

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Print out the powerpoints beforehand and review them so that you can formulate questions in your mind easily and ask Dr. Kaiser in class when you stumble onto the slide. There may be times that the information on the powerpoint won't be heavily discussed so attending class is very important; she will point out topics that she will concentrate heavily on and topics she will breeze over.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This course covers the growth and development from conception to to death. Although I enjoyed this class, I wouldn't recommend this course to anyone who didn't have an interest in the development of babies. Majority of the class was focused around birth to early childhood. These stages had a lot of information and terminology therefore requiring a lot of studying.

    Course highlights:

    Professor Wong was perfect for this course because she loved to refer all lessons to our lives. She always told stories about her college life and her children. Although I enjoyed learning about the babies, the highlight of the course was getting to adolescence and early adulthood because class went from learning to relating because we discussed all of the phases that we as teens and young adults go through.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    All you need to do is follow the lecture (Wong preferred us to print the power point) and take notes and read the textbook. When it comes time for exams just study the key facts of each topic and depending on the teacher you can rely on the study guide.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend taking this course because of the straightforward material and the Professor, Dr. Drinks (newly married), being so kind and understanding. She taught me how everything we do affects the people around us, even the people in our classes. Little things such as rolling your eyes when someone is annoying you has a profound affect on the class.

    Course highlights:

    I learned about the development of a person throughout the human life span, and how the things that have happened and will happen affect the person that you are today. It was incredibly interesting to see how we are molded, as well as the stage of life we are in now. We learned that everything we're feeling is normal to our developmental stage. We also learned what is to come in the future.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Be polite during class. Show up, listen, respond, discuss. Don't use your phone or other electronic devices improperly. Really soak up what Dr. Drinks has to say.
