Discover new ways of teaching and relating to children.
Challenge yourself and your young students as you become immersed in advanced levels of curriculum development and current issues in early childhood. Become a teacher-researcher, and explore courses that include learning through play, literacy, arts, English language learners, classroom management, and math/science.
How does one define play? What are the debates about the relationship of play to children's learning, to the development of meaning, and to creativity, PreK-2? Are there variations in play across cultures, between typically developing children and those with disabilities, and between genders? This course will examine theory and research that will help us explore these and other questions.
