Section Information for Spring 2015

This learning community course focuses on the study of childhood from birth to adolescence.  It approaches childhood from the perspective of several disciplines, including Anthropology, Psychology, Sociology, and Education.  The reading and assignments have been chosen to foster thinking about childhood theory, research, policy, and practical application of this knowledge to decisions regarding children and youth.  In addition, students will be introduced to a number of contemporary issues that, when confronted, will introduce students to a number of complex scientifically unresolved childhood issues that will allow for the development of important analytical, evaluative, and decision-making (i.e., critical thinking) skills.  This learning community employs a number of methods of teaching, learning, and assessment in order to meet varying individual needs and to capitalize upon the strengths and skills of all learners.
