GEN 427 - Core III: The Global Child (WI)

Semester Hours: 3
(Writing Intensive)
Children’s lives across the globe will be examined through multiple and varied lenses: the arts, literature, human rights and public policy, and the social and natural sciences.  The identification of the differences and similarities in children’s lives throughout the world will enable a broad understanding of the status of children today.  Globalization is influencing child development through the child rights’ movement and the reality of local geography, politics, and economics.  Childhood itself will be defined, as well as its beginning and end.  Aspects of children’s lives (e.g., eating, playing learning, working, sleeping, and their relationships) will be examined.  Identification of factors that define healthy development, factors that contribute to risk, and factors that allow the strengthening of children’s resilience will be used to design and evaluate approaches and strategies to improve children’s lives.

Pre-requisites: Core II, junior standing or above, and GEN 112 - Composition II: Argumentation and Research .
