ECED 230 - The Basics of Early Childhood Education

(3 credits)
This foundation course examines early childhood education (birth through grade 2) from a variety of perspectives including historical, sociocultural and developmental. A 40-hour, field-based experience is attached to this course. This field-based experience is used to contextualize topics and issues including typical and atypical child development, learning theories, diversity, develop-mentally-appropriate practices, teaching models and approaches, professional teaching standards and critical issues related to teaching and child growth and development. This course prepares students to apply for admission into both the teaching licensure and Early Education and Care programs.
