EDUC 023. Adolescence
(Cross-listed as PSYC 023 )
In this course, students examine adolescent development from psychological, sociological, and life-span perspectives, reading both traditional theory and challenges to that theory that consider issues of race, class, gender, ethnicity, and sexual orientation. During the first part of the term, students explore various aspects of individual development (e.g., cognitive, affective, physiological, etc.). The second part focuses on the adolescent's experience in a range of social contexts (e.g., family, peer group, school, etc.). Required for students pursuing secondary teacher certification. Not recommended for first-year students.
