Teaching Young Children
Rm. 111/ Child Lab
The Teaching Young Children (TYC) course focuses on the study of developmental expectations for children birth to 5 years, in order to prepare students for direct contact teaching in the Child Lab School. Students will learn and have practice with the expected developmental milestones for young children, importance of play, lesson and activity planning, and classroom management skills. Students will prepare for actual involvement with the children through course study and planning lessons for several areas including literacy, creative arts, and STEM (science, technology, engineering, math). Upon successful completion of this course students will have created a portfolio of activities that they may use when they participate in Child Study Lab.
Materials: Each student will need a folder to organize course handouts
The use of cell phones and headphones are prohibited in Rm. 111 and the Child Lab classroom.
