The Obama Administration is invested in the Promise of Education, which will expand educational services to children and ensure America’s economic competiveness in the global economy. As you envision America’s educational future, how will this federal law contribute to your success... and what hinders it? In what ways do your brain, body, emotions and social development contribute to academic and personal success? This learning community provides interested students with insights into the cognitive, social, and physical development of children and adolescents. With integrated activities and assignments, students will gain a better understanding of the role of development leading to personal growth and school success. The First Year Seminar will fulfill required elements to integrate students into higher education, as well as explore how government regulations impact the development of infants, children, and adolescents (up to young adults). Students will also gain skills for college success in ALS-70a.
