CCEI122: Active Learning in Early Childhood illustrates ways in which movement and active involvement can be used as tools in exploring and understanding art, language arts, mathematics, music, science, and social studies. Upon completion, students will successfully be able to recognize the difference between authentic, active learning and rote learning, identify what research findings say about the role of active learning and brain development and describe the role of active learning in cognitive and social/emotional development.
