In this course, students will develop an understanding of the learning trajectory of young children’s socio-emotional well-being and executive functioning. Drawing upon national and state policies and recommendations and the CSEFEL and CLASS models of positive socio-emotional growth, they will learn optimal programming decisions, classroom routines, teaching strategies and management techniques to foster positive and peaceful classrooms, including the explicit teaching of socio-emotional skills. They will also learn to use children’s emerging understanding of community to bring the concepts of civics/government, history/customs, geography/diversity, and economics/division of labor into the curriculum, including how to construct and interpret maps, from local to global.
