Elementary and Early Childhood Education

Program Coordinator

The Elementary and Early Childhood Education program is designed to prepare teachers to work in programs servicing children in nursery school, kindergarten, primary, and intermediate grades. It is designed to help students gain an appreciation and understanding of children, develop personally and professionally, and acquire a sound philosophy of education.

By working directly with children several times prior to student teaching, the student can study the reactions of children of various ages to different situations and thereby gain insight into the creation of learning situations and the planning of teaching procedures which meet the needs of children.

Corrective work in spoken and written English will be required if necessary. Students must be accepted into the certification program prior to taking methods courses. Observation, participation, and teaching within the practicum are further extended during student teaching where competency of teaching skills is demonstrated.

General Studies, Preprofessional and Core Requirements
Several restrictions and additions to the requirements listed above (see Other Requirements for College of Education Students) apply to students in this program:
