    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    The topics in this course were very interesting, and the class overall was one that I would love to take again. This class was very interactive and kept me engaged the whole entire time. I found the textbook easy to read, and the quizzes for each chapter were almost always information that could be easily found either in the textbook or from class notes. There were only a handful of other assignments for the course, and Dr.Ellers took the time to make sure we understood what she wanted.

    Course highlights:

    What did we not learn about development would be a better question. The very beginning of the book was fetuses and how we all started out. Then each chapter followed the progression of birth to death, and each section of development covered the physical, mental, and social aspects of development. We covered topics that impact development like family situation, food, learning disorders, physical conditions, and then the mental diseases that can happen in old age. There was a lot of information crammed into a enjoyable and interesting course.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    The best action to do to be successful is to be engaged when you are in class. Dr.Ellers takes the time to learn our names, and when she asks the class a question, she wants an answer back and she appreciates the students who answer. For the papers Dr.Ellers assigns, do them exactly how she instructs. The format may seem to easy but it is exactly what she wants, and if you are unsure ask her your question before the assignment is due. Doing the readings in the best way to do well on the midterm and final test.
