Assessment should inform teaching. It should be continuous, pick up data on mathematical growth and development, and provide information about the "zone of proximal development" (Vygotsky 1978). To do so, it needs "to foresee where and how one can anticipate that which is just coming into view in the distance" (Streefland 1985, 285). It needs to capture genuine mathematizing—children's strategies, their ways of modeling realistic problems, and their understanding of key mathematical ideas. Bottom line, it needs to capture where the child is on the landscape of learning—where she has been, what her struggles are, and where she is going: it must be dynamic. This session will examine ways to assess development dynamically to inform teaching and to document the learning journey.

Research continues to demonstrate that the most important years of development happen during the first five years of life. According to the American Medical Association, tens of millions of American children now face chronic diseases and illnesses - including cancer, autism, asthma, birth defects, ADD/ADHD, allergies, and learning/developmental disabilities. preliminary research from the Mayo Clinic, Mount Sinai, and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, suggests the environment of what goes in, on, and around children is fundamentally linked to their neurological, physical, and behavioral development. During this webinar, you will learn new approaches and information to managing environmental impacts on health.
