Teaching Strategies 
GOLD® is an authentic, ongoing observational system for assessing children from birth through kindergarten. It helps teachers to observe children in the context of every day experiences, which is an effective way to learn what they know and can do. GOLD is based on 38 objectives for development and learning that include predictors of school success; teachers use them to focus their observations as they gather information to make classroom decisions. Beaufort County School District uses the ongoing observational system for our four year old Pre-Kindergarten students.  Parents receive three reports throughout the year indicating what their child can do.
