EDUC 339 - Fine Motor, Gross Motor and Health for Young Children

(2cr) EDUC 339 presents teacher candidates with content knowledge of motor development in young children and explores methods for assessing and developing increased psychomotor ability. It integrates this development with procedures and skills needed for creating and maintaining a safe environment in which children can use their increasing motor skills to develop self-help life skills and the decision-making/critical thinking and content understanding required for making healthy choices. This course is part of the Shepherd University teacher education program which is founded on the philosophy and theme of "Teacher as Reflective Problem Solver." The course is also based on the principles and standards of the National Association for the Education of Young Children, the West Virginia Professional Teaching Standards, the Council for Exceptional Children Initial Preparation Standards and the National Education Technology Standards for Teachers. Prerequisites:  EDUC 333 , EDUC 315 /EDUC 315L  and permission of instructor. Admission to teacher education program.
