In order to reflect CUNY's decision to hold distance-learning courses, Learning Across America will be continuing in an online format. Online courses will be held for the same number of credits as our in-person option. Please email us with questions at email@example.com.
For au pairs, parents, and people who work with children – this class provides tools and activities to support literacy and childhood development. This is also a great supplemental class for people pursuing careers in childhood development.
Using practical lessons and activities, you will develop an understanding of learning processes and stages of literacy learning.
Class will also focus on the development of independence and responsibility - discussing ways to encourage children to make responsible choices and to be accountable for their actions. This relates to their schoolwork, to everyday life and to how they make connections to the world.
