To those of you who are either writing, editing, or reading through report cards, we especially appreciate you checking in with us at this very busy time of the school year.
Today's "On Display" post features the perspective of one of our Teacher Candidates (Anne-Marie Landolfi) on Project-Based Learning (PBL). Julie Ham and I love hosting students in our classroom from various university and college programs. Mentoring Teacher Candidates and Early Childhood Educator Students has proven to be a wonderful learning experience for everyone involved, us included. When we teach our students about the Full-Day Early Learning-Kindergarten program, environment as third educator, play-based learning, PBL, inquiry-based learning (to name a few concepts we touch upon) we improve our own understanding and skills.
I feel fortunate that Anne-Marie agreed to share her experience with all of you and am delighted to feature her as a guest blogger today. In my belief, it's important that we hear all the voices that influence early childhood. We have something to learn from everyone in education, whether they are learning to become educators or are more seasoned.
Here is Anne-Marie's lens on PBL:
Thank you to Anne-Marie Landolfi for making our students' and her own learning visible through this excellent example of project-based learning. We wish her continued success in her studies and look forward to hearing more from her in the field!
