POCET Approaches to Learning Example

POCET provides four basic activities for each of the 68 Developmental Guidelines which provide a scope and sequence of skills for Language, Literacy and Mathematics, plus five other domains of learning.

Here is an example for the Approaches to Learning domain:
Be My Partner
Occasionally there is a child who only chooses one task, day after day. When this occurs, a wise teacher will create an opportunity for the child to experience another learning center or task. Assign the child a partner and ask that team to complete a task in a different center prior to working at the center of their personal choice. This will give the reluctant child an opportunity to have a new experience, which will give him or her more confidence or interest in trying something new. The teacher could also be the partner.
