Assignment in The First Program

The Assignment in First Program

The Assignment is introduced in the First Program. It is a type of contract presented to students at the beginning of a new unit that delineates the subject to be studied and the different choices available to children for meeting the Assignment’s goals. An Assignment, which can be written on a whiteboard, SMART Board, sheet of paper, or computer screen, offers the young child early experiences in structuring his or her time and the various ways that a subject can be studied.
