ED 438 - Children Around the World


4 credits
Focuses on the unique characteristics, conditions, and inherent human wisdom of early education practices around the world with the goal of preparing early childhood professionals to understand, respect, and honor these differences. Emphasizes philosophical and epistemological perspectives to better understand the significance of cultural, historical, social, political, and economical contexts on beliefs about child development (age ranges from pre-birth to eight). Students will build an understanding of differing practices in different times and places and apply their knowledge to promote nurturing curricula and relationships with young children in their particular settings. Students will reflect upon and apply the awareness gained from this course to an educational philosophy that seeks to support all children in their care to reach their holistic developmental potential. Approved for University Studies (Integration -  Strand J). Prerequisite(s): Completion of lower division University Studies requirements. Junior standing or above.
