Faculty Kids Bring Child Development to Life
(Guest post from Dr. Brad Clarke, chair Gould Academy history department.)
Our senior elective Psychology class had some very special guests this week. Faculty and staff children: Penelope Kimball, Riley Hedden-Wilkerson, Gwendolyn Stack, and Harrison Kimball!
Our class is currently studying developmental psychology and as six-year old Harrison put it, “the students are studying how we think.”
The Psychology students designed an observation sheet based around developmental characteristics such as sensory-motor stage, stranger anxiety, conservation, concrete operational stage, etc.
The students observed the youngsters playing and asked them questions.
Even very young Gwendolyn seemed to really enjoy the attention of the high schoolers.
It was a fun morning for young and old alike!
