EDUC 602: Applying Theories of Human Development and Learning (3)*
Accomplished teachers use their knowledge of the social, cultural, psychological and physical development of their students to form productive relationships with students. They use this knowledge to support further development of students' knowledge, skills, interests, aspirations, and values. In this course, teachers use case analyses to gain a deeper understanding of human development from infancy through adolescence. Teachers will use the richness of their classroom to examine student variation across cognitive, affective, and psychomotor domains. Teachers will analyze research findings regarding children's development and use those findings to document practices as it relates to making decisions regarding children's education and schooling.
