Ready, Set, Launch: Lifting up our Littlest Learners
Preparing our littlest learners for a successful school career depends on how we set the foundation. Process standards are key to this foundation and are all about “how” we learn! The process standards are consistent across grade levels and content areas, highly correlate with overall performance on assessments, and help teachers differentiate for learners. Come explore how to use the process standards to go beyond basic-level thinking and promote student independence while lifting up our littlest learners.
