Building on elements covered in Foundations of Curriculum, Play, and Pedagogy, this course will examine observed capabilities, interests, ideas, and experiences of children as essential components of a quality curriculum. By engaging in observation and reflective practice, students will design, implement, and document inclusive experiences and environments that are rooted in play and inquiry. Using current documents that inform the early learning profession, students will demonstrate the importance of responsive relationships in designing and applying professional practices that reflect inclusive and constructivist-inspired curriculum, play, and pedagogy.
