Dear Faculty, Staff, Students and Community Members:
Please join The National Center on Quality Teaching and Learning and the University of Washington College of Education for an exciting lecture series where nationally recognized early childhood researchers and leaders share their expertise and passion. You won’t want to miss the chance to learn the latest research and innovative practice in early learning!
We hope to see you at the third lecture of the 2013 series where Dr. Doug Clements will present The Building Blocks of Mathon May 8th, from 7-9pm in Kane Hall 220. In this lecture, Dr. Clements will summarize recent research and development work around early childhood math, including works he helped write — the National Research Council report on early childhood mathematics; the report of President Bush’s National Math Advisory Panel; and the Common Core. One effective instructional approach featured in all of these is basing instruction on learning trajectories, and this approach will be illustrated through a set of NSF and IES (U.S. Dept. of Education) funded projects.
Please see the attached flier for information regarding the remaining installments in the 2013 series. This series is free and open to the public, so be sure to tell your colleagues in the early learning and K-3 communities! A question and answer session will follow each lecture.
Register for free here to save your seat as well as to receive updates and notifications regarding this event (including cancellation due to inclement weather).
