CDEV53-SD: Home

Welcome to CDEV 53, Child Growth and Development! This was the first on-line course in the Child Development and Family Studies Department at City College, and I am very pleased to be teaching it.

For the Fall 2018 course, we will be meeting for two mandatory face-to-face sessions on the Ocean Campus on  Wednesday 9/5 for the orientation and 11/14 for the final from 6:00-9:00 p.m. in MUB 255. This is a short-term compressed class which means that it will be very fast-paced, covering the same amount of material in fewer weeks.

These face-to-face sessions are truly mandatory! Please clear your calendar for those times.

The class is likely to be full. There is an electronic waiting list until the first day of instruction. After that, I'll also keep an interest list and will contact students if spots open up. As always, during the add period priority is determined by registration date.
The navigation bar to the left here has some sample assignments and readings. The class will have interactive assignments such as a weekly forum and quiz, in addition to readings and video. There is a sample syllabus attached at the bottom of this page. 
Since the fall 2014, we have been using a new text, Development of Children and Adolescents by Hauser-Cram, Nugent, Thies and Travers. 1st edition (2014). The CCSF Bookstore is carrying a soft cover black and white version. It is also available in loose-leaf format and as an ebook.

Looking forward to meeting you!


These sessions are for the orientation and the final. They truly are mandatory!

 Face-to-face sessions are on Wednesdays, September 5th and November 11th from 3:00-6:00 in MUB 255.
