Movement and Learning in Early Childhood is designed to help prepare undergraduate teacher certification students in the College of Education's Early Childhood Education (PreK-4) program and the College of Public Health's Physical and Health Education Teacher Education program plan and conduct movement experiences for preschool-aged children. The main content areas of the course include: 1) children's gross motor development, 2) teaching movement concepts (e.g., spatial awareness) and skills (e.g., locomotor movements), 3) using movement activities to teach academic content (e.g., literacy and math concepts), 4) facilitating children's unstructured free play, and 5) safety considerations when conducting movement experiences. Content will be delivered through online tasks, such as instructional videos for students to watch and then complete related assignments, and through in-class meetings to provide students with practical experience in planning and conducting movement activities. In addition, students will observe a movement-based lesson at a preschool program and document the experience.
