Human Growth and Development
Students learn the stages of the human life span: prenatal, infancy, toddlerhood, middle childhood, adolescence, adulthood, late adulthood, and death/dying. For each stage of the life span, students examine cognitive, language, emotional, social, personality, and physical development. In addition, students explore the procedures used to conduct research about human development.
