Using Active Learning in an Adolescent Development Course.
Levine, Judith R.
Activities and lessons, based on the theory of active learning and designed for a course to promote student involvement, are discussed in this document. Each activity is described and followed by an evaluation that students completed immediately following the activity. Students were asked about how interesting, useful, and relevant each of the activities was to them. Some examples of the activities include: completing the Storm and Stress Scale; completing a feature matrix to help review the different theories of adolescence; examining the age of onset of puberty by completing a survey on secular trends, participating in activities for moral development; describing sources of sexual knowledge; and answering questions about identity status. Many of these activities can also be adapted for use in an Introductory Psychology or Child Development course. (JDM)
