This course examines how children and adolescents learn and develop cognitively, socially, psychologically, and morally as individuals and as members of the diverse range of families, cultures, and communities in California. We look at ways teachers can create positive, inclusive, and culturally responsive classroom learning communities. The development of the learner is examined from multiple theoretical perspectives, and candidates practice applying these theories to understanding what happens in the classroom. We examine the impact of race and socio-economic status on classroom equity, student self-esteem, and empowerment/ disempowerment. We also investigate critical thinking, creativity, and reflection, while beginning to learn how to create developmentally, linguistically, and culturally appropriate learning activities and assessments.
