Middle Childhood Education | Kent State University

Impressive overview of behavior-genetic research on middle childhood and early adolescence from the longitudinal Colorado Adoption Project, including chapters on the interaction between heritability and parental influence on IQ, temperament, and behavior. Of particular relevance for childhood studies is the chapter describing genetic influences on life events in middle childhood.

Children in middle childhood are those who are in the age between 6 to 11 years old.

Middle Childhood teachers are licensed to teach in two content areas (Language Arts, Mathematics, Science or Social Studies) in grades 4-9. The Generalist Endorsement will allow licensed Middle Childhood teachers to add one or two additional content areas for grades 4-6. State requirements require six semester hours for each content area, evidence of preparation in pedagogy in each of the additional content areas, and the appropriate required Ohio Assessments for Educators exam. Students currently need six semester hours with 3 of those hours being a content methods course to meet state requirements.

Psychosocial Development in Middle Childhood


To our eyes, the Victorians seem very inconsistent in terms of their attitudes toward children. Child-worshippers who waxed rhapsodic about the perfect purity of children simultaneously eroticized them. Even as sentimentality about childhood reached new heights, the notion that all children are savages likewise gained widespread support; many Victorians accepted the “Law of Recapitulation,” which stipulated that as a child develops, he or she repeats the stages of development of the human race. This belief in “the savagery of all children and the childishness of all savages” served a justification for subjecting children to harsh discipline, and natives of other countries to the rule of the expanding British Empire (Cunningham 98).

Middle Childhood Success and Economic Mobility

Medieval childhood was a rich and varied state, since children varied from one another as much as adults did. It differed chiefly from modern western society in its mortality and in the fact that many young people started serious work at an earlier age. Most of what we associate with childhood, however, existed for children in the middle ages: upbringing at home, play, special treatment according to age, and training for adult life and work. The concentration of historians on adults in the middle ages does insufficient justice to the fact that about one third of the population was usually under the age of 14.
