2017 18 PD for All Series, First Institute
"Children as Scientists: Scientific Inquiry for Every Child" is the first in a series of five Professional Development for All events in 2017-18 for those who work with young children in the Learning Community of Douglas and Sarpy Counties. The 2017-18 series, entitled "Content-Rich Learning for Young Children, Birth – Grade 3," explores new research-based ideas about children's learning in the content areas. The focus is on educational practices that engage young children in developmentally appropriate and rigorous active learning. This will be accompanied by strategies for engaging families in content-rich learning adventures as they play and learn together. Offered as part of the Superintendents' Plan. Breakout sessions will be differentiated to address the diverse needs of the participants, including those who work with infants and toddlers, preschoolers, early primary-age children, and families. Participants have the choice of attending on Thursday the 5th or Saturday the 7th.
