Project Approach and Inquiry Based Learning
Mar 13 - Mar 13
19/YR*VOC*1248*606
Wed, 6:00PM-8:00PM

Young children like to investigate, and they especially love to learn about the world around them. Children learn best when they are motivated and have many opportunities for first-hand exploration and investigation, and when their teacher intentionally differentiates and scaffolds their learning. The Project Approach provides a context for this way of learning. The Project Approach involves children in studies of things nearby that interest them and are worth knowing more about. This course will introduce participants to inquiry based learning and give them hands-on practice in implementing a project in their classroom
