3 Class Hours 0 Laboratory Hours 3 Credit Hours
Prerequisite: Admission to Teacher Education program
Insights into the nature of child development reveal that respect for the child's inner teacher serves as the integrating principle for the effective education of young children.  Students will discover that the sensitive periods are the most powerful times for learning.  Students will learn the importance of the prepared environment as the third essential element in the teaching learning equation. This environment supports individual and collaborative learning and encourages positive social interaction. Students will learn that the Prepared Environment encourages active engagement in learning, the emergence and development of concentration and intrinsic motivation. This Conceptual Framework undergirds the research based Montessori System of Education.
