ECE 240 Engaging Young Children in the Learning Process: Integrating Curriculum and Instruction

3 Credits

This course will examine and compare theoretical perspectives and practical applications that have influenced curriculum development in both early childhood and elementary classrooms.  The course will revolve around six key goals derived from PDE’s stated philosophy for the preparation of highly effective teachers: (1) Instruction; (2) State standards; (3) Standards-based curriculum; (4) Materials and resources for instruction, including technology; (5) Assessment; and (6) Appropriate interventions. To successfully complete this course, students must demonstrate their understanding of learning as a process that integrates all areas of development (emotional, social, language, cognitive, physical, and creative), and utilize a variety of instructional strategies so that all children can become interested and engaged in learning. Pennsylvania’s Core Knowledge Competencies and Early Childhood Learning Standards are integrated throughout the course to assist teacher candidates in their ability to provide responsive instruction, curriculum, collaboration, and assessment.

Prerequisite(s): ECE 101  / EDU 101  



Note: There is a required field component for this course.  All students are required to have valid clearances to participate in field experience.
