$5.8 Million Federal Grant to Develop First Integrated head start curriculum for Urban Preschoolers Researchers at GSE plan to develop
Visit Penn's website var site="s12almanac" $5.8 Million Federal Grant to Develop First Integrated Head Start Curriculum for Urban Preschoolers Researchers at GSE plan to develop a first-ever integrated curriculum for preschoolers in Head Start classrooms across the countryencompassing literacy, numeracy and both school and social readiness skills. Funded with a $5.8 million federal grant over five years, this project will be the first effort U.S. educators have made to provide disadvantaged children with an opportunity to overcome the academic challenges that research shows can plague them for their entire academic careers. This project, which represents the Bush administration investments in early childhood education, is funded by multiple federal sources through the National Institute of Child Health and Human Development. Penn is one of only eight universities in the country to receive these grant funds. "Head Start has never before benefited from an evidence-based, integrated curriculum," said Dr. John Fantuzzo, a psychologist and professor of education at GSE, who is the principal investigator in this study. "Head Start and other early childhood care programs have done well at addressing childrens comprehensive needs and giving them a sense of what school is aboutwere excited to add to that success by developing scientifically tested curricula that could help preschoolers get a leg up academically, and the curricula could be around long after were done with this research project."

Basic Educational Skills as Defined by Head Start
The goal of Head Start is to bring about a greater degree of social competence in children, regardless of race, economic circumstances, language and geographic location by providing a comprehensive child development experience within the context of his/her family and community. Social competence embraces the child's intellectual, affective and physical development at home, in school, and in the neighborhood. Developmentally-appropriate educational skills are those which are necessary for the later acquisition of skills and learning commonly recognized as reading, writing, mathematics, language, science, problem-solving and the development of positive attitudes toward learning.
The Head Start curriculum involves mastering now the preschool work of "doing and experiencing". These experiences are groundwork for social competence and formal academic learning. It does not mean implementing in Head Start what children do in Kindergarten and first grade. The assumption of this project is that a program which fosters the acquisition of basic skills must not only be developmentally appropriate but must be implemented in the context of the Head Start philosophy of a comprehensive approach to children and families.
Classroom Structure
The Head Start education classrooms are comprised of three and four year olds. They are staffed by classroom teachers including a certified teacher, and a full-time and a part-time assistant. Classroom support staff includes bilingual assistants, speech and early intervention specialists, family service staff, mental health consultants, and a registered nurse.

The PreK head start curriculum is planned management of time, materials and activities to The Pre-K/Head Start Program's curriculum is based on The Creative Curriculum by Diane
[Main] [Schedule] The Pre-K/Head Start Program's curriculum is based on The Creative Curriculum by Diane Trister Dodhe and Laura J Colker. It offers the child enrolled varied opportunities to learn all areas: social, emotional, cognitive, creative and physical. Although the program always appears very informal and flexible, the curriculum and environment are the result of careful and detailed planning based on the best available knowledge of child growth and development. In planning, the teacher considers the group needs, ideas, and interests. Observations are done at the beginning of the year and results are used to determine yearly educational goals for each child. In early childhood classroom, how the curriculum is taught is as important as what is taught. Process is as important as product for young children.
Since we know that young children learn best through activity and experimentation with concrete objects, the major emphasis is on learning through play. Large blocks of free, uninterrupted time are made available and each child is free to choose from a wide variety of thoughtfully chosen materials and experiences. Warm and understanding teachers are always available to give any needed help in moving learning forward. Children move from one learning center to another as their interests and needs dictate. The Pre-K/ Head Start Program features an integrated day with themes, units of study and seasonal topics woven into the children's work in classroom learning center, individualized activities, and small and large group activities. Weekly and biweekly units are based on children's developmental levels, interests, and learning styles.

Curriculum and Reauthorization
  • Have you discussed the 1998 Head Start Reauthorization Act with your colleagues?
    Are the new Education Program Performance Standards and Performance Measures circulating faster than the latest best seller?
    Do you wonder what the new legislation means for your curriculum?
    Do you think you must immediately hire a consultant, buy new materials, change your activities, and develop new teaching strategies?
These questions and many others are on the minds of Head Start education staff throughout the country. Tri-County Head Start in Paw Paw, Michigan, is no exception. We have explored how we make professional decisions about curriculum, and we've identified possible pitfalls. We've also taken a close look at our curriculum to see if it is compatible with the new mandates from Congress, and we realize there are two relatively simple steps in this process. Step 1: Have a working knowledge about child development principles.
When adults are knowledgeable about early childhood development, they present appropriate curriculum. In addition, each child's learning style and cultural context must be addressed by presenting appropriately challenging experiences that allow for positive achievement and engage children in multidisciplinary activities. Both are necessary to make curriculum meaningful for children as well as adults.

  • The MCPS Program of Studies, pre-Kindergarten level The Early Childhood Observation Record The Pre-Kindergarten Curriculum Framework
PRINCIPLES The Pre-Kindergarten Curriculum Framework is based on the following principles: Children are constructors of knowledge Children construct knowledge through interactions with people and the physical environment. Children are intrinsically motivated to learn and to make sense of the world. Children are active learner s Children learn by using all of their senses as they observe and manipulate objects, by interacting with peers and adults, by experiencing events, and by reflecting on their actions and observations. As they play and explore, children test their knowledge, experiment with materials and language, practice new skills, and use symbolic representation. Children learn best in an environment that is safe, secure, and responsive Children need to feel secure, accepted, and valued. In addition to being safe and child-centered, classroom environments should be responsive to each child.

    Child Care Federal Issues
    States set a significant amount of policy in child care and early childhood education programs. The federal government is a partner in providing funding and a regulatory framework for several programs. Major federal programs include the Child Care Development Fund (CCDF), the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA), and Head Start. Both CCDF and IDEA include funding and regulatory parameters for states. Head Start provides direct funding to local programs providing comprehensive child and family services to low-income families. In addition, the Bush Administration announced an initiative in 2002 called Good Start Grow Smart to address early childhood issues including coordination of programs, development of learning guidelines, expanding accountability and teacher training in Head Start, and financial support for research. For more information about federal changes, contact Sheri Steisel or Lee Posey at NCSL's Washington, D.C. office. NCSL's Human Services List Serve is a good way to receive updates on federal human services issues including child care and early childhood education. NCSL's Denver staff can assist with state implementation options related to federal programs.

Learning Connections-
An emergent literacy and numeracy curriculum for culturally diverse children
Learning Connections is a curriculum development project directed by the Center on the Family in partnership with the O`ahu Head Start. The goal of the project is to design, implement, evaluate, and disseminate a supplemental curriculum for Head Start classrooms that will enhance the language, literacy and numeracy skills of three- and four-year-old children. The curriculum is based on current research that identifies the foundational skills that children should acquire during the preschool period. Project staff will work directly with preschool teachers and parents to create developmentally appropriate learning environments and experiences that prepare children to succeed in kindergarten and elementary school. The curriculum is built around a collection of sequenced activities that are engaging, challenging, and culturally-sensitive activities. Teachers are provided with daily lesson plans, learning activity instructions and materials, and ongoing in -class mentoring. Parents are provided with weekly home activities and biweekly informal demonstrations. the effectiveness of the curriculum is being evaluated using a controlled longitudinal experimental design. The Learning Connections curriculum fosters the following skills:

Parent and family involvement, for example, has always been an important part of head start, but an integrated curriculum would link their activities more
Homework: Head Start Researchers at the Graduate School of Education have taken on a big assignment: Developing the first integrated curriculum for Project Head Start, a $6 billion federal program that helps prepare almost a million low-income children for school. The curriculum, which will be developed and tested over the next five years in partnership with researchers and preschool teachers, will weave together the teaching of basic reading and math skills with school and social-readiness skills. has Another challenge is combining these components in a way that they enhance each other rather than overwhelm the child. With $5.8 million in federal money, the researchers will test various levels of integration to see which produce the best outcomes. Parent and family involvement, for example, has always been an important part of Head Start, but an integrated curriculum would link their activities more closely with the skills and concepts that children are actually learning in the classroom to better reinforce them, Fantuzzo says.
