Curriculum Alignment


Event Description

What is important when choosing a curriculum? There are several important elements to look for, according to Step Up To Quality. The curriculum should be effective and responsive to children and also be in alignment to Ohio's Early Learning and Development Standards. Participate in this session to find out what curriculum is, how to choose it, what the Big Ideas are for young children, how to align to the standards, and much much more! Please bring a copy of the Early Learning and Development Standards (ELDS) with you to the session. They are available for download on the Early Childhood Ohio website at earlychildhoodohio.org.
