ELED 302 - Child Development

3 Credits
3 hours per week.

This course is designed to provide the pre-service teacher with a constructive understanding of the physiological and psychological factors inherent in human growth and development, and learning and personality. Practical insights (predicated on research-and experience-based principles for encouraging the intellectual, social, and personal development of students, with special emphasis on the various forces that affect learning behavior and personality) are provided. The study of the principles of human growth and development is traced from early childhood to the beginning of the teen years. Psychological implications for teaching are studied with attention given to their relations to educational practices. Opportunities for the pre-service teacher to observe elementary and/or middle school children in various school settings are provided. Procedures for ensuring that pre-service teachers acquire strategies for developing State and National Assessment competencies in their students are emphasized.
