Kasper, Jean W.
A descritpion is provided of "Growth and Development," an overview course for two-year college allied health majors which outlines the processes through which the infant, young child, and adolescent mature physically, socially, and emotionally. First, the course description presents the goals and emphases of the course, curricular placement information, in-class time allotments, the student population served, a course overview, grading procedures, and child observation dates. The following sections present a glossary of terms, information on the rationale for and goals and objectives of the course, an overview of course units, and listings of instructional materials, including texts and audiovisual materials. Next, the five units of instruction are presented: (1) infancy (birth to 1 year); (2) toddler (1 to 3 years); (3) pre-school (4 to 5 years); (4) school age (6 to 12 years); and (5) adolescence (12 to 18 years). Each unit description includes an overview of the topic, goals and objectives for each week's activities, learning activities, and sample test items. Finally, evaluation procedures are discussed, covering the grading scheme for students, procedures for course revision, estimates of the numbers of students who will achieve course objectives, and provisions for students who fail to meet course levels.
