Course description

Through examining developmental theory, this course expands on the study of child development from infancy through school-age. Students will deepen their understanding of development along the continuum, self-regulation, and stress responses. They will consider diversity, equity, and inclusion and challenge socially constructed views of development, behaviour and ability. Through classroom discussion, students will analyze developmental characteristics of children and articulate the ways in which these characteristics interconnect and contribute to a child's holistic development. They will apply these considerations to their approach to planning for an inclusive curriculum for individuals and groups of children.
