PS 358 - School Age Development
(3 cr.) This course is required for five-year MAT students. Students learn what psychology research reveals about development in children between the ages of 5-14. The class explores the following domains: sensory-motor, neurological, cognitive, language, social and emotion. Students learn about developmental questions that pertain especially to school-aged children, such as whether IQ can change, and about influences that may be particularly powerful, such as exposure to community violence. The facts of development are connected to theories of learning, motivation, intelligence, cognition and cultural psychology and also are applied to education. Prerequisite: PS 236; As Needed
