Effective implementation of inquiry-based curriculum, such as Project Approach, in an early childhood program provides results which are hard to beat, but not everyone is on-board. Review the The Philadelphia School Preschool Dog Project and consider what elements of the project made it inquiry-based? What did you see that indicated the students were learning? What information would you include from the project to persuade family members and administrators that inquiry-based curriculum is effective?
For this assignment you will formulate an argument to gain support from family members and administrators for the use of informal inquiry-based curriculum, such as the Project Approach, in your early childhood classroom.
