CDEV53-SD: Home

Welcome to CDEV 53, Child Growth and Development! This is the first on-line course in the Child Development and Family Studies Department at City College, and I am very pleased to be teaching it.

We will be meeting for three mandatory face-to-face sessions in MUB 251 on the Ocean Campus. If you can bring a laptop to the orientation session, it would be very helpful. Please check for information on establishing a student account for free WiFi.

The class is likely to be full. There is an electronic waiting list until the first day of instruction. After that,  I'll also keep an interest list and will contact students if spots open up. As always, during the add period priority is determined by registration date.
The navigation bar to the left here has some sample assignments and readings. The class will have interactive assignments such as a weekly forum and quiz, in addition to readings and video. There is a sample syllabus attached at the bottom of this page. 
Since the fall we have been using a new text, Development of Children and Adolescents by Hauser-Cram, Nugent, Thies and Travers. 1st edition (2014). The CCSF Bookstore is carrying a soft cover black and white version. It is also available in loose-leaf format and as an ebook.

Looking forward to meeting you!


These sessions are for the orientation, the midterm and the final. They truly are mandatory!

Spring, 2015 : Face-to-face sessions are on Fridays  -  January 16th (orientation); March 13th (midterm - note that this is changed from the original date); and May 15th (final exam). CRN 31147 meets from 2:00 - 5:00 p.m. , and CRN 34696 from 9:00-12:00, in MUB 255.
