Open Access Honors Program Thesis

First Advisor

Rebecca Edmiaston


Majoring in elementary education, I have spent time in classrooms through field experiences, volunteer activities, and tutoring opportunities. I have learned about and seen teachers implement lessons and curriculum, and I even had the opportunity to lead a few of my own lessons. ln classes, I have written collections of lessons that made up thematic units. Y et I never had the opportunity to develop and implement curriculum unit. I did not know if my plans would actually work with a group of students, nor did I know if the students would meet the lesson goals. The purpose of this project was to give me the opportunity to engage in a reflective study of the curriculum that I designed and implemented for a traveling day camp program through Camp Iodiseca's, a Christian summer camp for children ages three through eighteen. I was particularly interested in identifying instructional practices that lead to students' understanding and application of specific Biblical principles.
