- Developmentally Appropriate Practice
- Developmentally appropriate practice is the teacher, school, or school district's selection of carefully selected curriculum based on the student's reasoning, communication, and interpretation skills, and on the student's ability to focus and interact in the classroom. These abilities and skills change over time, as students mature and develop. The selection of course content, instruction, and assessment techniques are important to maximize each student's potential in the classroom.
