ECE 110 Lecture – Early Development and Education – Fall 2020 – Reich-Shapiro

ECE 110 Lecture – Early Development and Education – Fall 2020 – Reich-Shapiro

This course examines the psychological and social foundations of early childhood and relates these foundations to educational practice with young children, birth to eight years. It focuses on historical and contemporary theories of childhood development. Early learning is considered in relation to biological factors, child and family, program, and socioeconomic factors, particularly in diverse urban settings. Young children’s physical, cognitive, communicative, social and emotional development are explored as contributors to and as consequences of early learning experiences. This course requires 15 hours of fieldwork, which students complete by enrolling, attending and participating in the ECE 110 fieldwork seminar (ECE 110S).

ECE 210 Social Foundations of Early Care and Education (Spring 2021)

ECE 210 Social Foundations of Early Care and Education (Spring 2021)

The EC field, particularly in the US, is one fraught with a history of inequity that can be addressed and dismantled with your awareness and actions. Over the course of the semester, we’ll explore the lives, contexts, and contributions of EC pioneers, and lessons that you can apply to your own growing identities as EC teachers. Over the course of this month, I want you to understand your role as advocates for children and families that don’t always have a seat at the table, regardless of where you sit.
