2010 Course Handbook
ECHP122: Early Childhood Reflective Practice 1
This unit combines university based early childhood study with practical teaching experience. The coursework prompts students to reflect deeply and critically on the nature of an early childhood curriculum, the early childhood teacher's role in teaching and learning, and contemporary issues related to the practice of teaching young children. In this unit students also acquire foundational skills for curriculum decision making including the observation based assessment of children's interests, development, and learning and strategies to facilitate children's engagement, learning and development. Students employ these skills as they complete 18 days of guided teaching experience in a prior-to-school early childhood centre.
