Looking to learn more about the HighScope preschool curriculum and basic implementation principles? This online course will teach you how to use the HighScope resource, Essentials of Active Learning in Preschool by Ann S. Epstein, so it does not just collect dust on your bookshelf.
Essentials: Series 2 Key Developmental Indicators (KDIs) will focus on the following content topics:
- Approaches to Learning
- Social and Emotional Development
- Physical Development and Health
- Language, Literacy, and Communication
Participants will learn how to implement the principles and practices of these content topics within the preschool classroom. Each week participants will complete chapter readings, "check my understanding" questions, discussion forums, and Zoom call meetings with peers and facilitators. Connecting with teachers and other early childhood professionals to discuss the basic principles of the HighScope curriculum and share implementation ideas will be a focused mode of learning for participants.
For this course, you will need a computer with internet access and the ability to listen to audio either through internal or external computer speakers. You will also need the capability to participate in weekly Zoom calls, either via the Zoom app or via the Zoom website (www.zoom.us). To participate fully in the weekly Zoom calls, you will need microphone capabilities through an internal or external computer microphone or telephone. If you want your peers and facilitator(s) to see you during these calls, you can use your computer's built-in camera or another video device (e.g., external webcam); or, you can use your mobile device.
