Example Syllabus:

Course Objectives: This course examines teaching and learning in early childhood settings from preschool through third grade. Since the nature of teaching and learning is viewed as a continuous process for children aged three to eight, Early Childhood Pedagogy will be taught as a continuation course, not divided by grade levels. Students will apply knowledge, skills, and attitudes constructed from theory, research, and practice in order to plan for and work with diverse young children. This course is designed to emphasize developmental, sociocultural, and historical influences on early childhood education. Students will be introduced to local, state, and national guidelines for early childhood education, and experience a variety of settings where such education takes place.

Course Content:

Method of Presentation: Class discussion, mini-lectures, and hands-on learning, all of which will typically revolve around readings that are read before class.

Method of Evaluation: Lesson plans and short response papers are evaluated in this course.
