Required texts and syllabus:
Safety, Nutrition and Health in Early Education, by Cathie Robertson (Fourth Edition)
The brown scantron No. 2052 will be used for some tests.
Please bring a picture of yourself by the second class meeting to insert into your folder. 3 extra points if brought in on time.
Topics such as health, safety, diseases, and nutritional practices for the protection of children will be covered. This course includes infant, child, and adult first aid. This fulfills the state licensing requirements for everything except CPR. This class may be taken through the Red Cross, American Heart Association or here on campus - Health 57E.
Attendance and class participation is a requirement. Students who are absent for more than 2 class sessions without calling the instructor may be dropped from the class. It is the responsibility of the student to drop officially from the class before the drop date otherwise a grade will be assigned according to the points earned . Participation includes arriving on time, actively participating in-group discussions, and remaining for the entire class. Arriving late is disruptive to the instructor and the students in the class. Last day to drop with a “W” is Friday Feb. 26th.
A number of videos are shown during this course to illustrate research in progress and new concepts discussed in class. Treat videos, as you would lecture, by taking good notes. Videos serve as a good basis for many quiz questions.
Quizzes are given throughout the quarter. If a student is ill and cannot take the test on the given date, it is then the student’s responsibility to inform the instructor before the exam. The test must be completed within the week before the next class session with the instructor’s permission. You will not be allowed to take the exam once the next class has started.
Grades based on a percentage of points earned. I teach many students per year, each of who have multiple grades. It is inevitable that an occasional grade will be misplaced or misreported. Therefore, it is imperative that you keep all your work returned to you in your folder and a continual record of your scores earned.
