EDPR 210 - Highly Individualized Teaching and Learning in Early Childhood


Fulfills a requirement in the A.S. in Early Childhood Education.
Delivery: Lecture
Young children vary widely in their skills, knowledge, backgrounds and abilities. Teaching has to effectively reach all children regardless of their abilities and disabilities. Effective instruction for all children requires specialized teaching and learning opportunities to access, participate, and thrive in the early childhood setting/classroom. Effective teachers are sensitive and skilled in interactions; they use ongoing formative assessment of each child’s skills to plan instruction; and they choose and use curricula and activities that engage all children, regardless of their strengths or needs. This course is an introduction to effective practices that support the development and learning of young children with disabilities and other special needs. This course focuses on evidence-based, individualized instructional methods and strategies used in teaching and facilitating the development of young children. Throughout the course your own classroom or practicum setting and identify a “focus child” about whom you will complete applied assignments.
