Approval Status


Date Reviewed

January 2012

Human growth and development across the life span is explored from the integrated perspectives of psychology, physiology, and sociology. Special attention is given to those areas which impact the classroom, including personality, motivation, learning styles, cultural diversity, and physical development. A thematic approach is used to address the treatment of mental, emotional, social, and physical health practices, including such topics as stress, diet, nutrition, communicable and chronic diseases, alcohol and drug abuse, lifestyles, childbirth, physical fitness, and environmental health, with an emphasis on issues impacting children and adolescents. Children's literature dealing with these subjects deepens the student's understanding.
