Tufts University: David Elkind - Child Development - Professor ratings, reviews and much more | JumboAccess
Professor Elkind is a very kind person who loves his job. Although he seems to be all over the place in lectures, he posts all of his notes on Blackboard so students can look them over. The recitation is very helpful in reviewing information. There is not much class involvement during lectures, but Prof. Elkind makes a great effort to meet with everyone in the class over lunch, which helps to personalize the class a little better. This class makes you want to continue studying child development, and is a great starting point.
Reading was a little time-consuming, but the textbook was very useful, and most information on the exams came from the reading. There were 3 exams (including a non-cumulative final), a 5-page paper, an oral presentation during recitation, and a short writing assignment about a classroom observation.
