This workshop gives participants an opportunity to explore the Wisconsin Model Early Learning Standards (WMELS) and enables them to apply the standards to build a foundation for high-quality care and education for all children from birth to the beginning of first grade. WMELS outlines developmental expectations through a continuum.
Participants will learn how to apply the Early Learning Performance Standards to determine what children should know and be able to do, plan learning experiences, provide supportive environments and collect data to ensure that all children are learning and making progress.
WMELS online is asynchronous—meaning not occurring at the same time. Participants will have a significant amount of interaction with the instructor and other students in the online discussion forums. Participants do NOT need to be online at the same time as other participants and do NOT need a webcam for this class.
