Early Learning Professional Learning Series 2019 - Dr. Janis Strasser

Friday, November 1, 2019

This presentation shares the many ways that early childhood teachers can use high level questions throughout the day and how "big questions" can help children think about and discuss diversity, families, and the school and home community. When we ask children questions that give them a chance to voice their own opinions, share their family experiences, and value their wonder and curiosity, we support their language and cognitive development.  

National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC) speaker and author Janis Strasser has worked in the field of early childhood for 45 years. She has taught preschool, kindergarten, and primary grades, conducted research for the New Jersey Department of Education, and has written almost one-hundred articles and book chapters for teachers.
