COURSE DESCRIPTION:

Child Development and Parenting is a class for 10th, 11th, and 12th grade students. It is designed to help students understand the complexities of parenting and working with young children while at the same time coming to a better understanding of human development through discussions, assessments, and a variety of activities. We will cover the development of a child from conception through the preschool years. There will be an emphasis on development and research-based strategies to help individuals in working with young children.

 

CELL PHONE POLICY: Cell phones are NOT TO BE USED at all in the classroom! They should be turned off and not be on the desk, in your lap, hands, VISIBLE, etc. during class.  Students are not allowed to charge phones while in the classroom. Using a cell phone will result in students putting their phones in the Cell Phone Holder for the entire class. If there is a real emergency, parents need to contact the front office to let you know. This is your WARNING.
