Young children have boundless energy—and endless curiosity about the world around them. They also have so much to learn. As educators, our challenge is twofold: first, to determine what children already know; and second, to use this insight to provide engaging learning experiences that will help them grow.
In this edWebinar, Dr. Scott McConnell and Dr. Jan Bryan will share strategies for meeting these challenges, along with practical tips for assessing your early learners more effectively. You’ll explore:
- What science tells us about the natural knowledge of young learners
- How we can use brief measures to accurately assess this knowledge
- How these measures also provide valuable insights into overall development and growth
- How to use these insights to guide learning journeys from preK through grade 3
This edWebinar will be of interest to preK through elementary teachers, school and district leaders, assessment and curriculum directors and coordinators, early childhood education directors, and RTI/MTSS coordinators. There will be time to have your questions answered at the end of the presentation.
