Early Childhood Showcase on May 5

April 30th, 2004 by Adam

The annual Early Childhood Showcase will be held in HUB 109 and the multi-purpose room on Wednesday, May 5 at 6 p.m. The campus is invited to attend and lend their support to both first-year and senior seminar early childhood education majors, as they present poster sessions and group presentations based on semester-long research.

Subject areas for the group presentations include homelessness, death or loss of a family member, domestic violence and its affects on children, and television/media influences: all issues a teacher may encounter in the classroom.

“The showcase highlights the students’ research and gives them the experience of doing a professional presentation at a conference,” says Associate Professor Pat Cantor, and chair of the education department. “It also gives other early childhood education students a chance to learn from their classmates’ research.”

Associate Professor of Education Gerry Buteau adds, “Research, presentation and knowledge skills are all embedded in the showcase experience.”
