EEDUC 6100 Adolescent Development in the Context of Families, Communities, and Schools

Students will investigate the historical, contemporary, cultural, physical and psychological aspects of this important stage of human development. While learning about the characteristics of adolescents, learners will reflect on their own experiences and come to know themselves more fully. A goal of this course is to apply theory to authentic experience so that pre and in-service teachers develop an appreciation and understanding of how the institutions of society, and specifically schools, can best serve this age group.
