Translational Child Development

Bringing theories of child development to life to inform classroom practice
This guide offers a menu of options that faculty can use, build on, and revise in teaching child development. It begins with an exercise designed to help students uncover their assumptions about children. It then introduces Bank Street’s developmental interaction approach as an underlying framework. The remaining sections correspond to three themes that categorize what teachers should know about child development. Specific knowledge within those themes will change but the basic content areas are central to a course in child development. Note that all activities address the construction of knowledge and the uncovering of assumptions that can interfere with new knowledge.
