Expanding on concepts explored in ED 207, this course develops students’ knowledge in planning interdisciplinary learning experiences that support the needs of the whole child. Pre-service teachers explore early childhood instructional strategies and materials designed to develop positive dispositions for learning, to foster an appreciation of individual and cultural differences, and to meet state and federal standards. Examination of the crucial link between observation and effective teaching is addressed. A field component is included in this course.
