Developmental Psych Cohort 09

building CUNY Communities since 2009


First Year Proseminar: Spring 2010

Here is the list of topics we identified at our first meeting. They are ordered to represent what I thought would be a good discussion and focus “flow.” The plan is to be somewhat fluid in how we address each topic per its order so adjustments may be made to accommodate our time needs for each topic.

Note:  Attendance and active participation in discussions and hand-on activities is a requirement of this course. If a student misses a class meeting it is expected that they will let the faculty teaching “prosem” know of this absence and work with the instructor and his or her advisor to cover the topic of the missed session.
