Tri-Lingual, Community-Based Early Childhood and Literacy Education for Indigenous Migrant Children in California - INTERNAL ENROLLMENT ONLY
These courses form a professional development experience for members of the indigenous Mexican communities in Santa Barbara and Ventura counties who wish to teach young children in local preschool and early care settings there. These classes are designed to examine best teaching practices associated with supporting the language, literacy, cognitive, and socio-emotional development of young children, as recommended by the California Department of Education and The National Association for the Education of Young Children. These include recommended caretaker practices for promoting rich conversations and early literacy with young children and for promoting young children’s cognitive and socio-emotional development and communicatively competent language use (e.g., conflict management strategies). The courses emphasize best practice considerations such as strong family-teacher relationships, parent involvement and education, culturally-relevant curriculum, and inclusion. A major goal of the courses is to provide students with research and ethnographic skills to investigate and honor the literacy and socialization practices of the indigenous Mexican communities where students will teach.
