    Description & More Details

    When young children’s learning styles are recognized and nurtured, they are more inclined to develop socially, emotionally, and mentally. Find out how brain research, social issues, and individual dispositions impact children’s learning. Gain perspective on the practices used in your school with an examination of classroom ideas inspired by a trip to Reggio Emilia, Italy, early learning standards from the National Association for the Education of Young Children, and how observation and communication skills are essential in building children’s unique strengths. With these approaches, you can help your students succeed to their fullest potential.
