2018 QRIS National Meeting

427. Supporting Rigorous and Appropriate Kindergarten throughout the Early Learning System

Date: Tuesday July 17, 2018
Time: 8:00 AM - 10:00 AM
Location: Spinnaker

As school districts partner with states to support early learning initiatives, educators are often caught in a world divided by academic rigor and developmentally appropriate practices. By addressing this divide, educators will be freed from the assumptions that result in a perpetual push-down of expectations, and be able to more effectively link the curricular and assessment practices supported in QRIS models and better prepare children to learn the skills and concepts that are necessary for the world of today. 

Presenters: Vincent Costanza, Teaching Strategies; Harriet Dichter, BUILD Initiative; Lissette Rodriguez, West New York School District; Megan Scott, Oklahoma Partnership for School Readiness
