The class will identify the various influences on a child's development by looking at individual child factors (temperament, resiliency, gender); the role of parents and the extended family, as well as exploring the impact of the broader community (schools, peers, social services). The class will also investigate cultural and historical events which impact the social development of the child. Specific topics to be covered include: bonding and attachment; gender role development; peer relationships; the role of the media; day-care; divorce; death; children with disabilities; poverty and traumatic life events.

Course Requirements:

Students will take two in-class exams which will be multiple choice and essay format. Students will complete two or three written assignments which require the application of course concepts (3-5 pages each).
