Psych 215 developmental psychology - adolescence (queens college) summer 1 2012

  1. 1. Adolescent Development Summer Session 2012 Professor: Dr. Jacqueline Mulone E-mail: jacqueline.mulone@qc.cuny.edu Office hours: Please speak to me before or after class if you have any questions/concerns, You can also e-mail me. Please allow one to two days for a response via e-mail. There are two required books for the class: 1- Developmental Psychology: Childhood and Adolescence, 8th Edition David Shaffer & Katherine Kipp ISBN-10: 0495601713 ISBN-13: 9780495601715 © 2010 Published 2- WHY Do They Act That Way?: A Survival Guide to the Adolescent Brain for You and Your Teen Author: David Walsh Publisher: Free Press Date: (May 24, 2005) ISBN-10: 0743260775 ISBN-13: 978-0743260770 Two exams (midterm and final) will be given during the course of the semester. The final exam will not be cumulative. Please note the exam dates listed on the syllabus and plan your schedules/appointments accordingly. Makeup exams will be given if you need to miss an exam because of an emergency. However:  Make-up exams will be given at the time of the final ONLY. You can take the midterm immediately after you hand in your final.  Make-up exams may be different from the original exam, and they will be whatever format I choose—possibly entirely essay or even oral.  If you miss the final exam, you must contact me within ONE DAY of missing the exam in order to schedule a make-up. You will be given an opportunity to take the make-up final on an alternate day at a time of my choosing. The exam must be taken within 3 days of missing the final, since there is a deadline for grade submission. Your final grade in the course will be calculated as follows: Midterm Exam 50% Final Exam 50% There will be no “curve” on exams or on your final class grade. What you earn is what you get. Keeping up with the readings, attending class, and allowing sufficient time to study for the exams will help you achieve the highest grade in this class. I am looking for an understanding of the material. Test questions are designed to assess your level of understanding, not memorization. If you have questions, please ask. The more you understand the better you will do.
  2. 2. Classroom Courtesy Please arrive on time. If you do arrive late, please enter the classroom as quietly as possible and take the most accessible seat available. If you know you will be leaving class early on a particular day, there is no need to inform me in advance; however, please take a seat close to an aisle and leave as quietly as possible. Please remember to either turn off your cell phone or completely turn the ringer off before class begins. Texting is not allowed in class. If you need to text please leave the classroom. Talking or whispering to each other during class is disruptive and disrespectful to me as well as to your classmates. If you have something urgent to speak to your friends about, there is no reason for you to remain in the classroom. Cheating will not be tolerated. If I see you cheating or communicating with a classmate in any way during an exam, you will automatically get a 0 on the exam. Tentative Semester Schedule will be given first day of class CHECK BLACKBOARD DAILY FOR CHANGES June 4 Syllabus Review, Chapter 2 Theories of Human development June 5 Chapter 2 Theories of Human development June 6 Chapter 6 Physical Development June 11 Chapter 6 Physical Development June 12 Chapter 12 Development of the Self and Social Cognition June 13 Tentative Midterm Exam (Exam on Chapters 2, 6, 12) June 18 Chapter 13 Sex Differences and Gender-Role Development June 19 Chapter 15 The Context of Development June 20 Why Do They Act That Way Chapters 1-4 June 25 Why Do They Act That Way Chapters 5-10 June 26 Why Do They Act That Way Chapters 10-14 Conclusion/Review June 27 Tentative Final Exam ( Chapters 13, 15, and entire book Why Do They Act That Way?)

It takes time to understand the material. If you have any concerns please see me as soon as possible.
