COURSE DESCRIPTION: This class covers an integrated approach to human development
from conception and birth to middle age, old age and death. Students will examine their own
growth and developmental patterns and learn to understand the characteristics of various
developmental stages. The major physical, cognitive and psychosocial themes and issues of
human development over the lifespan will be taught and discussed.
REQUIRED TEXT: ): Berger, K. S. (2018). Invitation to the life span (4th ed.). New York:
Worth Publishers.
COURSE OBJECTIVES: Through the study and discussion of human development students
will gain understanding and insights about their own lives and development within the three
domains and insights into the lives of others.
STUDENTS WITH DISABILITIES: Students who need accommodations because of a
disability should contact the UVU Accessibility Services Department (ASD), located on the
Orem Campus, in LC 312. To schedule an appointment, or speak with a counselor, call the ASD
office at 801-863-8747, or for Deaf/Hard of Hearing individuals, use the video phone number,
886-760-1819.
ACADEMIC DISHONESTY: This course upholds the Students’ Rights and Responsibilities
Code, Section VII-D, “ACADEMIC RESPONSIBILITES.” You are expected to do your own
work on assignments and examinations unless they are designed as collaborative efforts. IF YOU
ARE INVOLVED IN ANY FORM OF ACADEMIC DISHONESTY, YOU WILL RECEIVE A
GRADE OF ZERO FOR THAT ASSIGNMENT OR EXAM AND YOU MAY BE REPORTED
TO THE DEAN FOR DISCIPLINARY ACTION.
CLASS TIME: Class lecture time will be used to elaborate on the themes of chapters with
supplemental or related information. The lectures are not intended to be a substitute for the
readings nor will they revisit all of the content from the textbook. Students are expected to be
prepared to participate in class lectures so that everyone can have a more rich and meaningful
academic experience.
ATTENDANCE AND PARTICIPATION: Attendance is worth 15% of your grade. The
research is very clear that class attendance = better grades and better mastery of the material. I
will pass around an attendance sheet to check off in class. Please do not check in for anyone but
yourself.
LATE ASSIGNMENTS: Please be organized! Keep track of assignment due dates and turn
things in on time. Since there are various ways of earning points in the class, due dates will be
adhered to. If you miss a due date, refer to the late assignment grade deductions.
CANVAS: We will be using the course management system Canvas throughout the semester. If
you are unfamiliar with Canvas, then we will spend some time helping you get up to speed on it.
Assignments will be submitted through Canvas and quizzes will be taken through Canvas. This
also helps us to be more “green” as we use less paper in the process.
GRADING SCALE:
93-100 = A
90-92 = A87-89 = B+
83-86 = B
80-82 = B77-79 = C+
73-76 = C
70-72 = C67-69 = D+
63-66 = D
60-62 = D0-59 = E
Your final grade in the course is based on five categories:
Attendance
15%
Online Quizzes (5)
25%
Essays (2)
25%
Midterm
20%
Final
20%
*Late assignments will be accepted up to 5 days late with a 20% reduction in score each day.
Essays are to be turned in via Canvas.
GRADING: We will be using Rubrics for essay grading and assessment throughout the
semester. Points are assigned and used for grading and assessment. Feedback describes present
skills and indicates areas of improvement. The following is an example of such a Rubric.

Let me know in the beginning of the class if you will be requiring ADA accommodations. See
the end of the syllabus for ADA guidelines.

ESSAY ASSIGNMENTS:
*If you are not familiar with writing essays in APA format, please address this on your own or
by asking questions about APA style ahead of the Essay due date. We will go over what is
generally expected of you when writing APA papers in this course during class time.
*You will have to have the subject or his/her parent sign a CONSENT FORM ahead of time for
each observation essay assignment saying that it is okay for them to be interviewed/observed for
that assignment. I will provide the waiver forms.

relevant news article, text, or scholarly journal article), and you must also cite that.
