EDU 101 - Introduction to Early Childhood
Field observation and research will augment classroom activities and enable students to: describe the role of teacher of young children and devise a plan for their own professional development; trace the historical traditions of ECE and describe their impact on current practice; identify issues and trends in the field and articulate a professional position; analyze and evaluate approaches to ECE using the principles of developmentally appropriate practice and construct a personal philosophy of ECE based on this analysis. Ten hours of field experience in an early childhood setting is required as part of this course.
