ECED 2375 - Social & Emotional Foundations

Credit(s): 3
This course addresses promotion, prevention, and intervention strategies related to young children’s social-emotional development and challenging behavior. The course is built around the Teaching Pyramid (Fox, Dunlap, Hemmeter, Joseph, and Strain, 2003), which is a framework for understanding effective practices related to supporting young children’s social-emotional development and addressing 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 a systematic approach for addressing challenging behavior when it is persistent and not responsive to developmentally appropriate guidance procedures. Field experience is a required part of this course. A criminal background check is required for participation in the field experience component of the course.
