As a teacher you will be expected to deal with learners of different backgrounds and with a variety of individual differences at different age levels. In order for you to effectively handle the learners you need to know the basic principles of human growth and development and the characteristics that emerge. With this knowledge, you will be able to know their potentialities and capabilities. This is important in order for you to provide effective teaching and guidance. The module offers you a scientific study of the progressive psychological changes that may have occurred in your learners up to adolescence.
