This archived webinar provides an overview of how to translate research into teacher practice to improve program quality for infants and toddlers.
Focusing on current research on how infants and toddlers learn and develop, J. Ronald Lally and Peter Mangione, Co-Directors of The Center for Child & Family Studies at WestEd, discuss a reflective planning process and strategies to help teachers plan an appropriate curriculum for children from birth to three years of age.
The reflective process described is grounded in observation and documentation of infants and toddlers pursuing their natural learning agenda.
Lally and Mangione also reference resources for participants to use and present examples to illuminate the principles of Reflective Curriculum Planning.
This archived webinar is the first in the archived series, Infant and Toddler Reflective Curriculum Planning. The series present principles, a planning process, and strategies to help teachers support children’s learning from birth to three years of age. The framework is based on current research on how to facilitate infant and toddler learning in four domains as described in the Infant/Toddler Learning and Development Foundations—social-emotional, language, intellectual, and perceptual and motor development.
