Join the DC Office of the State Superintendent of Education for a series of community meetings to discuss education related topics.
Intentional Teaching in the Interest Areas of The Creative Curriculum for Preschool
Attendees must attend both days (9/17 and 9/18) in order to receive credit.
Promoting all children’s development and learning with The Creative Curriculum for Preschool involves teaching intentionally and responsively throughout the day. Interacting with children as they work in the interest areas and outdoors presents a terrific opportunity for teachers to follow children’s own interests to extend their play in ways that build their knowledge, skills, and behaviors related to curricular objectives. This session gives teachers specific strategies for using The Creative Curriculum for Preschool resources to engage children in meaningful learning experiences in each of the 10 interest areas and in the outdoors. Teachers will learn how to set up and maintain the indoor and outdoor environments, how to interact with children in the interest areas, and how to use child-initiated/child-guided experiences to build children’s skills and promote content learning during choice time.
