This course focuses on psychological theories related to adolescent cognitive, social and physical development. Adolescents are experiencing a myriad of changes. A better understanding of these changes will help educators plan and implement appropriate lessons, activities, lectures, assignments, and teaching strategies. Issues relevant to intellectual development, socialization, and educational evaluation are examined. Additionally, teacher variables and student variables in the instructional process are explored. Students should be able to apply their knowledge in a variety of settings with a multicultural perspective.
