ED 708 - Early Childhood Arts, Humanities, and Social Studies: Processes and Practices
Course Description: This course focuses on the development of creative expression, understanding of self within the context of community, and understanding the specific communities of classroom, family, neighborhood, and the outside world for all children, who are culturally, linguistically, and ability diverse, from birth through grade2. Approaches to supporting children as they engage in multiple forms of creative arts and discovery of citizenship will be explored. Skills in understanding the essential concepts, inquiry tools, and structures, and knowledge of resources for developing meaningful and challenging curriculum for all young children, will be developed. This course provides an introduction to New York State standards and immersion in NAEYC developmentally appropriate practices in arts, humanities, and social studies, and how to utilize DEC recommended practices in integrated, differentiated activities so all children can learn. Specific, evidence based methods, embedded within classroom, home, and community activities, and across curricular areas, will be analyzed so that emerging professionals, and the families they support, can assess and promote arts, humanities, and social studies learning.
