Lesson 1 Unit 1 AS-Level Health & Social Care
Watch this!! (2mins) What’s that all about? Question: What is a persons lifespan?
Lesson Outcomes To be able to understand the key definitions of Human Growth and Development so that I can recognise and describe key developments/events through a person’s life course linked to life stages To be able to demonstrate an understanding of the difference between growth and development
Human Growth & Development Discuss: What do we mean by the term: – Growth? Definition Human growth: refers to an increase in physical size, both mass and height. This occurs because the number of body cells increases and individual cells get bigger as they contain more material and become more sophisticated in their range of functions.
Human Growth & Development Discuss: What do we mean by the terms: – Development? Definition Human development: refers to increasing skills and abilities and capacities and can be physical, social, intellectual and emotional. People can continue to develop throughout their lifetime although at different rates.
Human Growth & Development Consider how people grow and develop through a typical lifespan. Pairs activity: Time 10 minutes Using the information on the following slide, discuss and produce a timeline for each child in the case study then feedback You can use any appropriate app
Tom and Lucy are 2 year old twins. Working with a partner, identify the major events that are likely to happen to Tom and Lucy during their lives. For example by the age of 5 they will have started school. Human Growth & Development
So, how do people grow and develop through their lives? We know that during a life course people can pass through many different life stages. Each individual is unique in their growth and development but at certain times of their lives (in other words the stage of life that they are at), they can expect certain changes or events to happen.
Think and do time! Using any suitable iPad app, create and label a diagram of what you think are the life stages in human development. Include the following: A name for your life stage The age range that you life stage begins and ends Let’s share our diagrams?
Exploring human growth and development across the life stages The life stages are: Infancy (0 – 2 years) Early Childhood (3 – 8 years) Adolescence (9 – 18 years) Early Adulthood (19 – 45 years) Middle Adulthood (46 – 65 years) Later Adulthood (65+ years) Why do you think adulthood is divided into 3 parts???
Activity Draw a table using your iPad or on paper– title My Family 4 columns – 1 name – 2 relation to you e.g. mother, father, uncle etc. – 3 age – 4 life stage Complete the table with as many family and extended family members as you can. Let’s share
Lets review Key Terms Card sort activity in pairs: 2 mins Match the key term with its definition
Growth A change in size or weight and is easy to measure. Development Acquiring new skills and capabilities, such as being able to count, write and handle our own emotions. Life Span The period of time a person exists between birth and death. Life Course The unique pattern of events and influences that shape a person’s development and experience between birth and death. Life Stage An age related period of growth and development. Infancy Early Childhood Adolescence Early Adulthood Middle Adulthood Later Adulthood 65 +
Homework Organise a research placement What do you need to do? Research a number of suitable placements where you could attend 2-3 hours per week every week from September 2014 to End of March 2015 What would be suitable??? – Nurseries – Care homes – Primary schools – After school care organisations attached to primary schools (e.g. Fun Club) Approach a prospective organisation to ask if in principle when you start sixth form in September you would be able to do your research placement there. If successful get details such as; – Name of organisation – Name of person to contact – Contact phone number and Provide these details to Mrs Daly on return to school in September
