LEARN IT Strengthens Teaching in Five Steps

A highly effective recommended practice in early childhood education, intentional teaching enhances all young children's learning through planned instructional strategies, conversations, and activities that build on each child's needs and interests. Now there's an evidence-based professional development framework—the LEARN IT approach—that helps educators put intentional teaching into action in their classrooms. Developed by the authors, LEARN IT strengthens teaching in five steps: Learning new knowledge and skills, Enacting knowledge and skills in the classroom, Assessing the effectiveness of instructional interactions, Reflecting on and revising practices based on the assessment, and Networking with colleagues and mentors.
