EDUC 361 - Child Guidance at Home and School

(3cr) EDUC 361 is designed to increase understanding of children’s behavior. Effective techniques for dealing with  issues including separation, peer interaction, fears, frustrations and aggression will be explored. The course emphasizes teaching children pro-social interactions, self-control, and decision-making skills and focuses on understanding behavior as communication and expression. Strategies for environmental controls for behavior are emphasized. 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. Students must have access to children, preferably in a classroom setting.
