Senior Advisor on Early and Elementary Education Policy
New America Foundation
Sponsored by Tools of the Mind.
It is no secret among seasoned early childhood teachers that children who thrive are those who are able to articulate their needs, have the ability to regulate their emotions, and can focus their attention on a task. Now, findings from new research studies are not only backing up that intuition, but they are providing teachers and child care staff with the new approaches and techniques to employ in their classrooms. Methods from Montessori, HighScope, and Tools of the Mind are among the approaches described in Lisa’s article in the October issue of Scientific American, How to Prime Preschoolers for Success, which describes the new science.
This webinar will review those highlights, helping teachers to gain more understanding of:
- What contributes to children’s growth in executive functioning skills
- What contributes to children’s growth in oral language development
- How teachers are learning to promote these skills in early childhood classrooms
All sessions are 1.5 hours long, and include a brief announcement from our sponsor.
2:oo PM – 3:30 PM Eastern Time.
