Course Description:

A survey of human growth and development throughout the life cycle including physical, cognitive, linguistic, ethical and psychosocial dimensions.

Essential Objectives:

1. Compare and contrast two major theories of developmental psychology.
2. Identify and discuss issues in human growth and development arising from differences in gender, race, and class.
3. Select one theory and discuss the major aspects of each stage of growth according to physical, cognitive, language, and social dimensions.
4. Explain how both environmental and genetic factors influence growth and development.
5. Apply the main concepts and principles of one developmental theory to the development of an individual.
6. Describe the process of empirical research (both cross-sectional and longitudinal) as it is commonly practiced by the developmental psychologist.
7. Distinguish between fact and opinion, recognize unstated assumptions, and evaluate arguments according to the quality of supporting evidence in the literature.

Additional Instructor Pre-Assignments/Notes/Comments:

In this class we will be making connections between human development and all of the influences that impact us during our lifespan.   Personal choices, family dynamics, culture/traditions, and policies/laws all play into the  dynamic of development.  We’ll be covering the major theories, comparing them to each other, and exploring all the possible influences (many of which we can influence).

Attendance Policy:

Attendance for this class will be evaluated in two ways.

 

  1. ANY participation during the week will result in a record of “P” (present).  Simply being marked “present” does NOT earn any points toward participation.

  2. To earn participation points students must be actively and thoughtfully engaged in the discussion board forums of that week.  Discussions forum points cannot be made up in another way.  Late discussion board posts will earn 0 points.

  • Regular and consistent attendance and participation are critical for success in this class. Because of the accelerated format of the class, multiple absences will negatively impact the final grade and may result in a failing final grade.  Please contact me with any concerns or difficulties regarding attendance and participation.

Please note: In order to receive accommodations for disabilities in this course, students must make an appointment to see the Americans with Disabilities Coordinator in their site and bring documentation with them.

Academic Honesty: CCV has a commitment to honesty and excellence in academic work and expects the same from all students. Academic dishonesty, or cheating, can occur whenever you present -as your own work- something that you did not do. You can also be guilty of cheating if you help someone else cheat. Being unaware of what constitutes academic dishonesty (such as knowing what plagiarism is) does not absolve a student of the responsibility to be honest in his/her academic work. Academic dishonesty is taken very seriously and may lead to dismissal from the College.
