Discover new ways of teaching and relating to children in this Early Childhood M.Ed. program.
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.
This course examines ideas that have consistently influenced thinking in early childhood education and have significantly impacted program planning for young children. Through examination of the ideas, students gain an understanding of some historical and theoretical frameworks that have shaped current educational thought. They use the theoretical frameworks as a basis for exploring current issues related to the processes of young children’s development and learning. Assessment, leadership, and advocacy efforts are integral components of the course.
