EDC 214 - Best Practices in the Early Childhood Setting/Field Experience I: Home
NAEYC's higher education accreditation system accredits early childhood degree programs preparing individuals for beginning career roles as early childhood educators. As such, the system uses the initial standards from NAEYC's 2010 Standards for Initial and Advanced Early Childhood Professional Preparation Programs. These standards describe what early childhood professionals are expected to know and do, defining essential learning outcomes for professional preparation programs and presenting a shared vision of excellence.
The 180 Days of Problem Solving series offers daily problem-solving practice geared towards developing the critical thinking skills needed to approach complex problems. This teacher-friendly resource provides thematic units that connect to a standards-based skill that students are expected to know to advance to the next level. Lesson plans offer guidance and support for every day of the week, outlining strategies and activities that dig deeper than routine word problems. Each week students will use visual representations and analyze different types of word problems (including non-routine, multi-step, higher thinking problems). This comprehensive resource builds critical thinking skills and connects to national and state standards.
