Tufts University: David Elkind - Child Development - Professor ratings, reviews and much more | JumboAccess
David Elkind | CD001 - Intro to Child Development| Child Development2005-12-03

Classes were stiff and boring, but the teacher was very knowledgeable about the material, having written his own books and theories on the stuff we were learning. It was easy and extremely tempting not to go to class, especially since his notes are on blackboard, but if you listen to him carefully in class he's actually interesting and funny. One on one he?s really helpful, and it's funny to see that he can be shy around students being such a big name but yeah the class is doable, going to lectures help, but not absolutely necessary, do the readings, which can be a lot if you don't keep up, but easy reading.

Workload was not bad at all. You had 3 exams, non cumulative, and no final and they were all very straightforward, no tricks or anything, do the reading and you're good. For the recitation sections, you had a group presentation/paper (3-5 pgs) to do which I thought was actually fun since we had to basically pick a media and relate it, in my case my group did Aladdin. The review sessions are helpful too since they highlight the things you should look over again before the test.
