Course Synopsis

This course will enable emerging ECE (Early Childhood Education) teachers to relate theoretical concepts with classroom processes. The guided interaction will prepare learners for meaningful and interactive placement in ECE settings. Preparing how to engage with children will inculcate a sense of planning and readiness in dealing with children and experience hands on the developmental range in responses. They will learn the art of lesson planning, along with building on different tips and strategies required for teaching and learning. A good base to initiate thinking, reasoning and problem solving is to adopt multiple approaches to engage with children keeping in mind the domains of growth, innovative use of materials and space.

Course Learning Outcomes

By the end of the module, students/ trainee teachers will be to learn, specify and apply key theories of teaching, materials and task design in ECE and explain how they relate to particular instructional practices; have clear insights into the concepts, theories and models underlying syllabus, materials and task design in ECE; have a comprehensive understanding of current developments in and debates about syllabus, materials and task design in ELT; understand the relevance of empirical and theoretical accounts of syllabus, materials, task design and teaching methods in ECE; show critical awareness of issues of design and representation in published learning materials; evaluate syllabi, materials and teaching practices in their own professional and cultural contexts in the light of current theories. The trainee teachers will be able to practice and learn Hands-on techniques and strategies for teaching and engaging young learners, including the use of Total Physical Response, Communicative Language Teaching and Task Based Learning. Special focus will be on Differentiated instruction, Cooperative learning, teaching numeracy and using STEAM as an approach for using Science, Technology, Engineering, the Arts and Mathematics to guide student inquiry, dialogue, and critical thinking.
