Human Growth & Development
Human Growth and Development is a 2 semester course which offers the student 1 credit and is taught at the tenth through twelfth grade levels.
The activities, daily work, and learning follows a discovery and student-centered learning model. This course gives students a real world understanding of human growth and development across the lifespan. The material covered in HGD is generally taught in a postsecondary introductory developmental psychology or human development course.
Students will study development across the lifespan with emphasis upon research, theoretical perspective, and common physical, cognitive, emotional, and social development milestones. This course is a pre-requisite for participation in the Ready, Set, Teach program.
Students will be expected to think critically across subjects, and use knowledge from different academic areas such as language arts and technology.
During the 1st semester the class will view the documentary In the Womb. Please read the attached permission slip and email me only if you would like for your student to opt out of a portion or all of the viewing. This is the link to the video if you would like to view prior to making your decision. Please feel free to contact me with any questions.
