Supervising to Support Children’s Executive Functioning
Wednesday, April 20, 2016 20:00~21:30

In this webinar, we will encourage supervisors to think about ways to help teachers to support children’s development of flexible thinking, planning and prioritizing, and initiation of tasks. How do we help children use ideas and information, rather than memorizing knowledge? This makes learning so much more dynamic and engaging for both the teacher and the children!

We will use CLASS (Classroom Assessment Scoring System) videos to show ways to build higher-order thinking skills into classroom daily routines and activities. Join us as we explore these ideas and challenge our own thinking about how teachers can help children to express themselves more originally and thoughtfully.

This webinar is sponsored by the Tokyo Association of International Preschools, and features experts from the Institute for Community Inclusion (ICI, www.communityinclusion.org) at the University of Massachusetts Boston.

Since the 1960s, the ICI has been a leader in the disability field. We promote the full inclusion of people with disabilities in every aspect of society, through research, training, and consultation, as well as clinical and employment services. Our projects increase disability inclusion across the United States and internationally.

A recording of the webinar will be available for those who cannot make the date and time.
