Parent Guides to the DoDEA Curriculum
Active, constructive learning experiences are the curriculum. The key elements of these active experiences are as follows:
- Materials. Adults supply a range of "hands-on" materials that invite children to build, construct, create and solve problems.
- Choices. Children choose their own activities during the child-initiated parts of the routine. During adult directed activities, adults offer many options children, allowing them to choose from among several subtasks or to solve problems in individual ways.
- Language. Children talk about what they are doing with adults and peers.
- Support. Adults use a variety of strategies to support children's efforts and to encourage them to undertake further challenges as they develop their ideas.
