Swamped with your writing assignments? Take the weight off your shoulder!
For this discussion post, respond to the question:
“Why study child growth and development?”
Frame your response based on the content covered in Chapter 1 of Child and Adolescent Development and your own view of the knowledge you hope to gain in this course.
You are expected to develop your own understanding (rather than solely summarize the chapter content) of the “why” by blending new knowledge with your current beliefs about child development in our society and culture). Demonstrate careful, critical thinking.
Your answer should show clear application and proper referencing of the textbook. Make sure you answer one peer posts and include references from the textbook in each.
