Great Intro to the Subject
Many Small Assignments
Not too easy. Not too difficult.
This course was a required class for my major, Early childhood studies. I must also note that this course was taking on line. I recommend this course and professor becuse although it was online Professor Purper posted a video every week explaining the assignments.
One of the highlights of this course is the opportunity for hands on learning and observations. Most of the assignments in the class required us to choose a child or class to work with. One of the things that we learned about was the infant and preschool DRDP’s (Desired Results Developmental Profiles), which is an assessment tool used to measure the child’s development. So with each weeks reading and activities we learned about how cognitive processes of thought, perception, attention, and problem-solving develop in infants and young children. With the DRDP’s I learned that children developed at different rates but there is a rubric -so to speak- about which milestones children reach at a certain age.

Advice for students:
My advice is to get a list of school sites you would like to do your observations in. If you work as well getting this list together will help you find a school that would help with your work schedule.
