Adults to Connect to Children"
Our goal is to ensure the high
quality of relationships we all know are essential for high quality
early childhood programs. This workshop offers supervisors in early
childhood programs to experience a portion of Connecting
To Children, a staff development program for early childhood
educators, to see how this constructivist approach to professional
development can support their staff’s own understanding of how to
positively influence children’s lives.
In this workshop we will reflect on
and discuss our own behaviors, practices, successes and frustrations in
influencing our staff. We
will explore our own learning through the basic 3 step structure to
natural learning (Investigation, Representation & Interpretation and
understanding) which is the approach used in Connecting To Children. We will build our understanding from our
shared experiences in much the same way we would like our staff to
learn, so they can better connect to children.
Essentially we will examine how to walk our talk in influencing
To Children, enables staff to make discoveries that are authentic,
life altering, and foster real and sustainable change in how educators
interact with children. It’s a simple curriculum that fosters and documents deep
learning outcomes. Educators
discover how they can help children be who they are.
Learner Outcomes and Objectives:
our own behaviors, practices, successes and frustrations in
demanding and non-demanding talk - Learn to talking informatively.
a shared understanding of how the basic 3 step structure of natural
learning can foster staff effectiveness.
the impact authentic documentation of staff effectiveness could have
on children, their families and the school.
