In this course, students will research the history of the Head Start Program to find out why it was started, who it was intended to serve, and what effects--if any--the program has had on children in poverty. Students will become familiar with child development learning theory, specifically literacy skills for 3 and 4 year old children.  They will also
investigate different types of poverty and how they manifest themselves in different cultures, and examine their own learning styles to see how they affect the way that they perceive poverty.
