Section Information for Fall 2021

How did we develop into the people we are today? How different are children from us? Are children basically the same across cultures or are there differences? Can learning about development tell us about the
nature of our minds or the right way to parent or educate children? We will consider these questions and more as we journey through the science of child development, from conception to adolescence. Along the way, we’ll learn about a variety of theories, methods, and empirical findings that will help us make sense of various aspects of typical development, including learning to perceive, walk, talk, think, feel, relate to others, and more. This course should help students better understand and relate to children (as a teacher, parent, etc.) and better evaluate claims about them
