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 and ends with three themes that categorize what teachers should know about child development.
