Welcome to ECE 311

Hi Students,

I am looking forward to working with each of you over the next several weeks as we all get to know each other and share ideas about and through writing. The course is designed to focus on curriculum development in early childhood and teaching strategies with a developmentally appropriate approach.

Each time you log into the classroom, you will arrive at the course home page. Please remember to check for new announcements, as I will be posting important information periodically. Your home page also features a green button labeled “Start Here” below the announcements. Please click on the button for a handy course checklist that will help you get started.


Please make sure to read my "Faculty Expectations." This explains very important information regarding my late policy, academic dishonesty, discussion questions, etc.

I also recommend familiarizing yourself with the course guide, found on the "Course Materials" page. This guide contains useful information on what you can expect from this course, as well as a detailed, week by week breakdown of what will be expected of you over the course of the next several weeks.

Please check out the column with several links and tabs on the left side of your home page. Take the time to go through the links and tabs and familiarize yourself with course materials, grading, and the course calendar, not to mention student responsibilities and policies.

Finally, please introduce yourself in the "Post Your Introduction" section, located under week 1. This should be done on the first day of the course.

Remember, everything you need to know about the course is at your fingertips. When in doubt, contact me! After all, I am here to help you in any way that I can. Feel free to post questions under the Ask Your Instructor link or e-mail me at lyndsey.gresehover1@faculty.ashford.edu. Also, please click on the Meet Your Instructor tab to get to know more about me just as I'll be learning about each of you.


Last but not least, please take the time to view the short video posted below. It's well worth your time. I look forward to working w/ all of you.


Lyndsey
