Fun AND instructive learning centers provide a rich opportunity for children to develop and deepen their understanding of the world around them as they engage in different types of play and exploration. They also create equitable learning opportunities by providing youngsters multiple pathways to explore and deepen their understanding of important concepts. But this does not happen without thoughtful, intentional preparation and skillful guidance by the teacher.
Join PBS on September 24 at 5 PM ET in a Webinar to learn how to design equitable learning centers that build knowledge, engage children in inquiry, prompt critical thinking, and foster collaborative and playful learning.
You will receive a CE Certificate by attending the webinar.
After the webinar, you’ll be able to:
Plan learning center activities that are evidence based.
Plan learning center activities that are accessible to children.
Plan learning center activities that are deliberately connected to the disciplinary studies of the day or week.
Assemble an array of learning centers intentionally designed to provide children with multiple learning pathways.
