I am really glad I took this course. After studying secondary education in college, I was amazed that a course like this was not required of all future teachers of adolescents. The psychological changes that these young adults go through really do impact their interaction and everyday emotions while in high school. It would help every teacher of young adults to know just what is going on inside their minds and bodies.
I enjoyed the course. I found very informative and useful information and suggestions that will assist me in my teaching profession. Sonya has an effective and often humorous way of presenting her research. I highly recommend her as an instructor.
I enjoyed this course very much. I think it should be a prerequisite for all parents with children about to enter adolesence. Thank you!
I got some great information and plan to use all of it as I work with students, teachers, and parents this fall as a middle school counselor. This was my first on-line course and I would definitely take another one because it was a very good experience.
I have a young teenager at home. This course has been a tremendous help to me in learning to deal with her actions and reactions.
This class is so packed full of useful information. Anyone that works with adolescents really needs to take this class!
This course had lots of excellent information for parents and professionals who want a better understanding of pre-teens and teenagers. A lot of food for thought and very challenging!
This course helped to freshen up my knowledge on the subject of adolescent psychology. I found much of the information to be quite useful in dealing with my students at the junior high level as well as my 14-year-old daughter. Thanks.
This course was an excellent choice. The information was so interesting and useful, both professionally and personally. Thank you!
This was definitely one of the very most interesting and useful courses I have taken. It offers a tremendous amount of insight, especially for parents and others who teach/work with adolescents. In addition to providing information pertaining to all the important facets of adolescence, the instructor also ties this in with the impact of earlier life experiences, quality of parenting, family environment, etc. As a private educational tutor, I plan to utilize the understandings and knowledge I have gained to better meet the needs of my adolescent students.
