The final unit of this course is focused on Prompts and Provocations. How might you curate possible experiences for young children? What can you learn from observing children, deeply engaged in open-ended play?
You'll think about they cyclical nature of planning: curating an experience, observing children at play, reflecting on your observation, and letting your observations and reflections inform your future planning.
You will learn about the role that language - especially open-ended language - plays in materials experiences.
Finally, you get the tools to implement a cardboard playground in your classroom, school, or community!
Have a listen to the introduction to this unit below, and use the individual lessons in this unit to learn about creating provocations for different ages, facilitating children's play, and how children's play informs planning next steps with materials and beyond.
