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, including the first one on Friday, January 10th in MUB 240, on the Ocean Campus. If you can bring a laptop to this session, it would be very helpful. Please check www.ccsf.edu 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.
The text for the course is The Young Child: Development from Prebirth Through Age Eight by Puckett, Black, Wittmer and
Peterson. 5th edition (2009). It is widely available online, and it is fine to use the previous edition, or the new 6th edition.
Looking forward to January 10th,
MANDATORY FACE TO FACE SESSIONS - January 10th, February 28th and May 136th in MUB 240, Ocean Campus.
These sessions are for the orientation, the midterm and the final. They truly are mandatory!
There are two sections of this course. The a.m. section meets from 9:00-12:00, and the p.m. section from 2:00-5:00. Dates and location are the same.
