    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    In a developmentally appropriate classroom, there are various ways of telling if children are learning. Teachers can observe and assess students' progress through informal assessments, such as observing their behavior and interactions, reviewing their work, and engaging in conversations with them. Additionally, teachers can use formal assessments, such as quizzes or tests, to measure students' understanding and knowledge. Furthermore, teachers can also use progress monitoring tools and strategies to track students' growth over time. Therefore, it is not true that there is no way of telling if children are learning in a developmentally appropriate classroom.

It focuses on providing experiences and activities that are appropriate for their developmental stage. These experiences and activities are designed with specific goals and objectives in mind, aiming to support children's growth and development in various areas such as cognitive, social-emotional, and physical development. Therefore, the statement that DAP does not have goals or objectives is false.
