- explore and discuss Oregon’s new Early Learning and Kindergarten Guidelines that provide learning standards for children ages three through the end of kindergarten in the domains of language, literacy, mathematics, approaches to learning, and social-emotional development; and
- examine the research-based characteristics of preschool and kindergarten classrooms that best support approaches to learning (motivational skills) and social-emotional development for children of all abilities.
At the end of this session the participant will be able to:
