Nature or Nurture? Biology versus Environment?
This is a classic question that has commonly come up in regards to child development. As teachers, we should be interested in finding out the answer to this question because we see our students 8 hours a day for 5 days a week for 10 months!
So I went to our expert, Dr. Aletha Harven, an Associate Professor in the department of Psychology and Child Development at California State University. Dr. Harven holds a Ph.D. in Education from UCLA, a Master of Arts degree in Education and a Bachelor of Arts degree in Child Development from California State University, Sacramento (CSUS), and an Associate of Arts degree in Liberal Studies from American River College (ARC) in Sacramento, California.
Dr. Harven has co-authored a book on careers in child and adolescent development, edited and contributed chapters to critical books on social justice instruction and education policy, and written policy reports in the area of education for the National Center for Research on Evaluation, Standards, and Student Testing (CRESST).
