I am having trouble locating an article for the first assignment. I understand it is supposed to be on general curriculum for early childhood. However, I feel like I have typed in every combination to find an appropriate article, yet I still can not find one! Is their any way you could give me a suggestion on what to type in the search bar? I want to stick to the lib guide site just to be safe.

For this search, I would link to the LibGuide, and choose Education Source. Search curriculum AND elementary. Before clicking search, limit the results to full text, peer reviewed, and the last 5 years. The initial result pool will be over 2900 articles. To focus your search, in the left side toolbar, scroll down and click on Subject. There you'll see the major subjects of the articles in the results. If you don't like the choices, click Show More to see the entire range. When it shows more, scroll down until you see Early Childhood Education, and click the box beside it. This will limit the results to the 58 or so articles specifically about ECE curriculum. You'll see a number of possibilities, including Curriculum in Early Childhood Education: Critical Questions About Content, Coherence, and Control.
