It is important for educators to explore and have knowledge of the six developmental periods from childhood to adolescence to understand the implications of development on learning.
In this assignment, provide an overview of childhood to adolescent development and the relationship between development and classroom learning for the following age ranges:
Prenatal (gestational period pre-birth)
Infancy (0-1 year)
Toddlerhood (1-2 years)
Early Childhood (3-8 years)
Middle Childhood (8-11 years) (8-11 years)
Adolescence (12-18 years)
In the “Childhood to Adolescence Development Chart,” write 50-100 words for each age range outlining the following:
Define each developmental period, including important milestones and maturations that occur during each age range.
Describe the effect of inherited/genetic or acquired/learned characteristics for each age range.
Describe the implications for each age range on in-school learning (for instance, describe typical behavior patterns or learning needs).
Provide an APA reference citation for each row of the chart.
Support your findings with 2-4 resources.
