Content

Teachers will develop an understanding of how the information captured from the Best Start Kindergarten Assessment transfers to PLAN2 and is mapped to the National Literacy and Numeracy Learning Progressions. The participants will then learn about the functionality and the analysis that is part of PLAN2 in order to plan for targeted and quality teaching and learning experiences for Kindergarten students. The last module requires teachers to reflect on their learning and identify any individual need for further reading of key strategy documents, investigate other professional learning opportunities and/or locate resources to support teaching.
