The Center for Early Childhood Education and Intervention (CECEI), Dr. Christy Tirrell-Corbin, Principal Investigator and Project Director, is implementing a multi-phased project, which brings standards-driven, project-based learning to preschool (defined as those who are in three and four-year-old classrooms) children throughout the State of Maryland. This work is funded by the Maryland State Department of Education, Division of Early Childhood. The multi-phased project will have the dual focus of:
(1) expanding the implementation of Children Study Their World: A Curriculum for Four-Year-Old Children (CSW), and
(2) developing and implementing Children Explore Their World: A Curriculum for Three-Year-Old Children (CEW).
The overarching goal of the project is to utilize evidence in the research literature to design and implement standards-driven, project-based learning experiences, grounded in Maryland’s Early Learning Standards and Early Learning Assessment, for three and four-year-old children throughout the state.
