This course examines human growth and learning from birth through late adolescence. It is designed to prepare teachers to synthesize information regarding developmental theory and subsequently apply this to lesson design and effective content-area pedagogy. Candidates will examine multiple frameworks related to the cognitive, social/emotional, and physical development of children and use those to analyze current educational practices in PK-12 schools. Cultural influences impacting human development and implications for educational practices will also be examined. The course will include field-based experiences.
