This workshop provides supervisors with strategies to support teachers to understand how to get children to become successful writers at such an early age. Many children come to pre-k wanting to write. Administrators learn how their teachers can use developmentally appropriate everyday activities to support children to grow as writers. School leaders engage in activities which they can utilize during the required 90 minute professional learning community.
This workshop focuses on school leaders connecting and aligning the ECERS-R tool to the Early Childhood standards domains, Quality Review and CIE. School leaders explore the subscales and items of ECERS-R and have the opportunity to practice scoring with a few subscales items. As a result, school leaders see the value of using ECERS-R to assist them in implementing the seven subscales of ECERS-R to assess and measure the quality of their program. As school leaders our goal is to assure that our schools have quality programs that improve student learning. This workshop leads to next steps to improve the environment of their early childhood program.
