    Hi Bankstreet Teachers,
    My name is Margo Okapal. I am an undergraduate student of Early Childhood Education at the University of Oklahoma. I am part of group doing a presentation on the Bank Street Approach. One requirement of this assignment is to interview a teacher or practitioner of the curriculum.
    Would anyone be willing to answer our interview questions?:
    How would you explain the Bank Street /Developmental Interaction Approach and its differences from traditional teaching to a new incoming student’s parents?
    How does Bank Street differ from traditional from teacher’s perspective?
    Do you build on child interest or teacher chosen themes?
    Do you use project approach in your classrooms?
    Do all themes build from a social studies format?
    What are some of the popular themes that might be seen in a Backstreet classroom?
    How do you implement your themes?
    Do you integrate the academic content across curriculum?
    How are children grouped (age, skill level, etc)? How do you differentiate?
    What materials/ manipulatives do you use in your classrooms?
    What do you have centers? If so what do they look like?

    Any information/thoughts about this teaching approach you share with us will be greatly appreciated.
    Thank you again!
    Heather Fisher, Margo Okapal, and Alli Chrismon
