9. Which aspects of the course were most valuable?
I really appreciate the reference manual that the professor provided for future information for our field. I think the child observations were also valuable opportunities to practice our skills and apply knowledge from the course. What I wish we could do more in class that would benefit students is more opportunities to discuss real world issues like we did for one class period about furlough Fridays or gathering data about cultural/dialectal differences in speech.
There is no complaining about Dr. Weirather. Yes, he is a great professor. His lecture is coming from his knowledge, not from texts, and that explains really well. I learned a lot about from his class. Thank you.
I really liked Dr. Weirather's knowledge and enthusiasm. The class is structured in a way that learning the material is simple and enjoyable; he clearly wants us all to succeed and love this field as much as he does. I wish I had him as my professor for every CSD class!
The child observations were good hands-on assignments. The green book was packed with very helpful information. The quiz questions at the beginning of class helped me to prepare for the exams.
All of the videos shown in class were very helpful. Also the supplementary text was very valuable in this course.
charts and outlines
the lectures were very interesting and helpful in understanding the book
The green book
Learning different stages of when children learn how to talk, speak, write, and a lot of different things. It really breaks down childhood milestones into a science and he's obviously very passionate about his job. Good teacher.
Dr. Weirather's lectures were really helpful. He was able to portray the course material in an easy and organized manner that was easy to understand. Basically, he was good at talking with us rather than at us, asking what we thought about relatable topics and making sure that we are on the same page.
