Tufts University: Richard Lerner - Child Development - Professor ratings, reviews and much more | JumboAccess
Richard Lerner | CD085 - Promoting Positive Youth Development | Child Development2006-05-08

Review:
I loved this class, and Dr. Lerner. He makes a real effort to make sure that everyone is learning, and he is passionate about the material. I thought the class was fascinating because it took all of the theory that we've learned in other CD classes and actually made it relevant to the real world. The class was eyeopening and definitely one of the best that I've taken at Tufts. Also, both Dr. Lerner and the TA were extremely accessible and would answer any questions you had, or meet with you at any time. Also, Dr. Lerner brings in big name guest lecturers 4 or 5 times during the semester, and they are all fascinating. Really a fantastic course, and very worth taking!

Workload:
A coursepack from Gnoman as well as one of Dr. Lerner's books, but reading is very minimal, and not that necessary to do as he covers most of the material in his lectures. Three 3-4 page reaction papers to speakers, as well as a 5 page midterm and final (both take home). He allows you to turn in as many drafts as you want, which is extremely helpful. There is also a presentation at the end of class, which requires little preparation time.

Richard Lerner | CD14307 - Applied Developmental Science | Child Development2005-05-09

Review:
Fantastic professor! He makes already-interesting material even more enjoyable. he is a very engaging lecturer and encourages class involvement. He is a very influential scholar in the field and thus is highly knowledgeable about the course material. He is VERY concerned with his students' progress through the course, through their major, and also through their college careers. It was a real treat to have taken a class with this professor.
This class really increased my satisfaction with my major. We are constantly taking courses about theories and methods, but there are few courses offered that teach about the applications of this knowledge toward improving the lives of children. This class did exactly that! The professor also brings highly influential scholars and practitioners to the class to meet with students to discuss their possible career plans, and to learn how they made a niche for themselves in the field of child development. While the class is very helpful and interesting for majors, this would also be a great class for non-majors to take if they are looking for an interesting and informative child development class to take.

Workload:
The workload for this class was not bad at all. There are three 3-5 page papers and three 3-5 page reaction papers due throughout the semester. In my class, the professor allowed you to hand in your paper early to receive feedback, and then hand in a revised paper to be graded (although there is absolutely no penalty for not taking advantage of this). There are 3 TAs in addition to the professor to ask for guidance. At the end of the semester, there is a final project (which was not time consuming at all) which you present to the class. This was a great class!!
