Third session in the PreK-3rd Grade National Work Group Series

On Wednesday, September 19th SERC will host Session 3 in this series, Curricula:  What, How and Why, from 3 to 4:30 pm.  To reserve your spot in the session, please RSVP to Cathy Wagner 

Curricula that support learning and development across the PreK-3rd grade continuum build on children’s competencies and desire to learn; develop the whole child; strengthen self-efficacy, identity, and independence; encourage peer interaction; balance and integrate content; prioritize oral and written expression; and build higher order thinking. Amongst all this, curricula must address and align with states' standards and the Common Core Standards. Often the first question is, “what curricula should we buy?” Given the complexities, there are more essential questions to ask: “How can early childhood programs and schools work together to choose curricula to support high quality, coordinated PreK-3rd grade efforts?” “What are criteria for good curricula that span these ages?” “Are there ways to simplify and streamline curricula use?" This webinar will address these questions, exploring how curricula can be explored, selected, refined, and used in developmentally responsive ways to promote high quality teaching and learning, from preschool through 3rd grade.
