Question Description

I need support with this question so I can learn better.

You are the new director of an early childhood program which is pursuing NAEYC accreditation. Currently, your staff members rely heavily on direct, whole-group instruction to teach children new concepts.  Your job is to encourage teachers to create more child-centered, developmentally appropriate classroom environments by demonstrating the benefits of child-centered learning.

In your post you will first describe a traditional, direct instruction activity and its learning outcome (e.g., students will read a book about plants and name the parts of a plant). Then describe how teachers could meet the same outcome using a child-directed strategy. These strategies include exploratory play, guided discovery, problem solving, and discussions. 

Student has agreed that all tutoring, explanations, and answers provided by the tutor will be used to help in the learning process and in accordance with Studypool's honor code & terms of service.
