The Language of Problem-Solving in Early Chidhood:
From Social Emotional Development to Making Thinking Visible
Helen Gasperretti, Two Rivers Teacher and Two Rivers Learning Institute Faculty Member
As young children learn language, they are simultaneously building the foundation for higher order cognitive skills like problem-solving. By providing and facilitating multiple opportunities for students, the teacher can help young children learn to use language for both social and academic problem-solving. In this session, we will explore how the use of a regular problem-solving routine can be utilized to model language that students can then apply across social and academic contexts. Participants will leave with practical tips for using a problem-solving approach in their early grades classrooms.
This webinar will meet from 7:00 PM to 8:30PM on Tuesday, February 8.
