441. Bridging the Gap, Birth Through Age Eight: Percolating Up Early Learning Strategies

Date: Wednesday July 18, 2018
Time: 8:30 AM - 10:30 AM
Location: Marina 6

Looking for dynamic ways to supercharge learning? Frequently, K-12 standards, structures, and academics are pushed down into the preschool years. Think about the opposite model, percolating up ECE philosophies, structures, and methodologies. Join us for a lively discussion on: 
• Aspects of ECE to percolate up: play-based learning, teacher-child interactions, planning for transitions, and family-focus. 
• Why these models are successful. 
• How ECE strategies can be implemented at the K–3 level with teachers and administrators. 
• Why these changes will make a difference. 
• Bridging the gap with funding, e.g., ESSA.
