Graduates will be able to effectively plan classroom-based instruction or activities for their roles as early childhood educators; accurately assess and analyze student learning, make appropriate adjustments to instruction, monitor student learning, and have a positive effect on learning for all students; work with students, families, and communities in ways that reflect the dispositions expected of professional educators; and demonstrate fluency in each of the seven Maryland Teacher Technology Standards.
