Presentation Topic and Synopsis
Using Embedded Instruction to Support Young Children’s Learning
What is embedded instruction? How can it provide additional help to children, and enable children with developmental concerns to participate meaningfully alongside their peers?
With classrooms being increasingly inclusive, embedded instruction is an approach that supports the learning of children with developmental or special needs in a preschool classroom setting. In this session, a framework and associated teaching practices related to this approach will be presented. Participants will also be presented with practical handles through a demonstration on what to teach, when the teach and how to teach.
