In order to support the Kansas vision of increasing kindergarten readiness, ESSDACK is hosting a professional learning community for early childhood educators that will meet five times in 2018-2019.
The Early Childhood PLC will be facilitated ESSDACK's own Katie Perez, Renee Smith, Robi Alstrom, and Jane Seward, each bringing a specific expertise to share that allows participants to drill down in a variety of areas.
We will be integrating innovative practices for math, literacy, social studies, and science using a PBL approach to implement the Kansans Can vision.
The needs of disadvantaged populations (Special Education, Low SES, and Culturally and Linguistically Diverse) will be addressed. In addition, facilitators will provide information on developing assessments, evaluating curriculum, recognizing child abuse and neglect, and support in completing grant work.
Using the Kansas Early Learning Standards as a guiding document, participants will explore:
Social Emotional Learning
Approaches to Learning
Be sure to register early in order to receive your books in time for the first session. ESSDACK needs 15 enrolled to have this PLC.
An online version of this workshop is available.
Dates are: Sept. 21, 2018; Oct. 26, 2018; Jan. 18, 2019; Feb. 8, 2019; and March 1, 2019.
