Early Learning in Math and Science (ELMS) Undergraduate Course in Teacher Preparation

Educators facilitating in-person courses will want to check out this Early Learning in Math and Science (ELMS) undergraduate curriculum (and those teaching online will want to save it for the future). Developed through a collaboration between the National Science Foundation, the University of California Berkeley's Lawrence Hall of Science, and Los Medanos Community College, ELMS helps "college instructors to prepare pre-service early childhood educators to teach science and math to young children." This comprehensive and adaptable curriculum includes 17 lesson plans (designed for 2.5 hours per session) and provides everything an instructor needs. Before committing to the content, educators should review the checklist found on the Teaching the Course Overview page. These requirements help users determine if it is a good fit. Next, educators should check out the Pre-Course Preparation section (also found under Teaching the Course) for planning instructions. On the General Course Docs page, instructors can view and download preliminary materials, including a sample syllabus and materials list. Then, each session is neatly organized on its own page found under the Sessions tab. For each session, educators will find instructions, multimedia materials, and printables to make planning a breeze. Finally, the Assessing Students page provides suggested assignments and rubrics to assist in the grading process. The curriculum was developed by Ellen Blinderman, Ashley Barajas Montano, and Pamela Perfumo, with input from other colleagues and advisors.
