When you are studying a course do you think mainly about how you could get full marks in it? Maybe you say to yourself at the beginning of the semester that you will try your best, but this changes by the end to just wanting to pass! If you haven’t said such a thing may be you have heard it. I wish to share with you my experiences of studying in one course at Zayed university, and how I ended by saying “ I learned a lot” and “ I enjoy my studies”? I took Education 309: Middle Childhood & Adolescent Development in 2004. The course focused on physical, cognitive, and psychosocial development in both middle childhood (age 7- 12) and adolescence (age 13-17). I learned a lot from this course that will help me in my career and in my personal life. In this article I will talk about what I learned and how I applied it to my life. First, I will talk about what I learned in the course; then I will share some study advice.
