Language Development and Socialization
Winter 2021 - Prof. Edmonds is super nice and compassionate in regards to COVID and any personal situations you may have. She and her TAs are very generous regarding extensions. There is a lot of reading for this class. There is a required book by William O'Grady called How Children Learn Language, which I'm selling (408)-881-2503. This is just the beginning of many, many articles and papers you will have to read additionally. The grading is based on 3 10 point quizzes and 3 written assignments on readings. I attended all the lectures and did all the readings and got 60 or 65/65 on the assignments. Section is mandatory but you get 2 free misses and can skip section and instead complete a reading prompt each week. She's a nice professor and it's an interesting class from a more anthropological perspective (since its also cross listed as Anthro 152) but it is a lot of work IF you do everything properly and care about your grades. She also offers a make up quiz at the end of the quarter.
