ECE 614 - Programming for the Whole Child (1 Credit)

Prerequisite: None
The focus in this course will be the role of the director in planning and implementing program that best supports the growth and development of young children. “Who is the child?” will be at the core of our thinking. Participants will learn how knowledge of developmental theory (Dewey, Piaget, Vgotsky, and Malaguzzi), cultural perspectives, along with various forms of assessment, help us come to “know” the child and to perceive and respond to differences in children. “What is teaching?” and “what is learning?” are other inquiries that will guide explorations of curriculum that meets children’s interests and needs. Ongoing program assessment will be an underlying theme.
