EDPR 111 - Applied Social and Emotional Development - Birth through 8


Requirement Fulfillment: Fulfills a requirement in the A.S. in Early Childhood Education.
Delivery: Lecture
Incorporates specific techniques and strategies for guiding and enhancing social and emotional development and learning in children 0-8 years at the introductory level. We will address promotion, prevention, and intervention strategies related to young children’s social-emotional development. The course is built around the Teaching Pyramid (Fox, Dunlap, Hemmeter, Joseph & Strain, 2003), a framework for understanding effective practices related to supporting infant and toddler’s social-emotional development, and understanding and responding to challenging behavior. The model includes a focus on building relationships with children, families, and colleagues; designing environments that support young children’s social-emotional competence; applying strategies for teaching social skills, and promoting emotional development; and developing an effective approach for supporting positive behavior in the context of developmentally appropriate practice.
