About Unified Childhood Education at Keuka College
Keuka College’s unified childhood/special education program will prepare you to teach a diverse child population as you take coursework leading to certification in both childhood and special education for grades 1-6.
You'll learn to apply developmentally appropriate teaching methods, and lesson plans to fit the skills and cognitive level of children in their grammar school years. As classrooms become increasingly multifaceted, you’ll understand how age, differing rates of development, and socioeconomic background play a pivotal role in how children learn.
Combine your classroom instruction with at least two Field Period™ internships at the childhood level, and you’ll be ready for student teaching...and soon for your own classroom.
