Course Description

Designed for present and future teachers, caregivers, home visitors, administrators, and the general public who participate in decisions relating to early childhood curriculum. This course examines inquiry-based learning and how it relates to a child-centered, integrated preschool curriculum. In this course, students will better understand the importance of inquiry based curriculum in the preschool setting through hands-on experiences in an early childhood classroom, web -theme based lesson planning, and through the demonstration of inquiry based lessons. This course integrates the Michigan Department of Education (MDE) Early Childhood Standards of Quality and the National Association for the Education of Young Children's (NAEYC) position statements and guidelines for instruction into class discussions to help students gain insight into the best practices with young children. This class can be used to satisfy part of the 120 clock hours of instruction required by the CDA Council.
