Finding Focus and Deeper Understanding in the Early Years: Racing to cover a non-viable curriculum overwhelms both staff and students. This workshop describes how teachers can narrow the instructional focus, set clear and attainable learning goals, and systematically track progress toward essential outcomes. Teachers will be better able to meet the instructional needs of children while bringing more joy back into the classroom.
