Course Description

Course Description

Some studies have indicated that the positive effects of preschool are not necessarily built on and sustained as children get older. The purpose of this intermediate continuing education course, developed using information from the U.S. Department of Education, is to examine two types of strategies that preliminary literature searches revealed as promising practices to support children’s learning in early elementary school. Methods to align instruction from preschool through grade 3 are discussed as well as how differentiated instruction can be used to meet the diverse needs and skills of individual students.

Course Objectives

1. Identify the benefits of participation in high-quality preschool programs for students of varying backgrounds.

2. Discuss the characteristics, advantages, and literature review findings of aligned P-3 programs and differentiated instruction.

3. Outline the use of case studies to evaluate how the positive effects of high-quality preschool could be built on and sustained.

4. Describe how programs aligned curricula and instruction across grades, used instructional coaches, and took a proactive approach to engaging parents.

5. Summarize ways that strategies to accommodate students’ different skill levels were implemented, and how groupings and extra staff were used to differentiate instruction.

6. Review program goals, outcomes, successes, challenges, and lessons learned.
