Complementary Curriculum Approach is a way of approaching curriculum that builds upon your ability to personalize the environment and understand your role in children’s learning. Join this engaging webinar by the authors, Lisa Kuh and Iris Ponte to learn about how to support children’s play and cultivate classroom environments with rich, interesting learning experiences at the core. Iris and Lisa will share four strategic and powerful teaching intentions that will invigorate your practice and enhance your time and energy by using fresh, interrelated tools.
This webinar will explore how the Complementary Curriculum Approach will help you trade ‘harried and chaotic’ for ‘settled and engaged’. You will learn how to prepared your classroom environment, productive choice making, intentional presentations of materials, socially constructed learning experiences, and emergent curriculum. You will come away with new ways of working with children.
Join us to:
- identify current challenges in their own settings and learn how to remove barriers to high quality, differentiated experiences for young children through an approach that supports children’s self concept, self-regulation, independence, and inquiry-based learning.
- examine The Four Intentions: Compelling Materials, Explicit Presentation, Responsive Scaffolding, and Following Children’s Interests.
- reflect on the work of Dewey, Montessori, Vygotsky, and Malaguzzi.
- focus on developing Compelling Materials with interesting, everyday items, then learn how to analyze the materials to develop an Explicit Presentation for children that builds independence and differentiates instruction.
All sessions are 1.5 hours long and include a brief announcement from our sponsor.
