This course has been about the changes that take place as we move from childhood to adolescence. Now it’s time to bring some of that information together, so that you can consider human growth and development in context.

Think about the 6-year-old you and the 16-year-old you. Consider physical, social/emotional, and cognitive changes. What things are very different? What things are very much the same?

 

Now consider the 16-year-old you and the current you. Consider physical, social/emotional, and cognitive changes. What things are very different? What things are very much the same?
