I am an Assistant Professor of Early Childhood Education at the University of South Carolina Aiken. I also direct the USCA Children's Center. I teach two methods classes in our teacher education program for early childhood students. I teach a class which discusses Math and Science and another one which explores Social Studies and Creative Arts. Each of these classes also includes a practicum course. Students are in area public schools for their practicum. Each semester my students have an assignment which requires that they develop a unit. I share with them an example of a unit. The topic of the unit I share is Bread Bread Bread. One of the lessons which is included in that unit is about yeast.
