Human Growth and Development (EDUC 245)

Attached above is the longest paper I have ever written. I was asked to conduct research on the cognitive, socio-emotional, and physical development of children of three different ages. We had to conduct our own interviews and complete a 25 page paper on our observations. I really enjoyed conducting the research for this paper as it gave me an excuse to visit my family.

I took EDUC 245 the spring semester of my freshman year and it soon became one of my favorite classes. Child development has always been an interest of mine and this class always kept me interested in what we were learning. The most important thing I learned from this class was how to conduct my own research. I have never conducted a full research paper on my own before entering this class. By giving myself the proper amount of time, I was able to successfully write my own research paper without any help. This was a huge accomplishment for me and I was very proud of myself for completing it. In the future, I will be able to continue to conduct my own research on my own and succeed.
