This is the second in a series of webinars intended to build on the framework for developmentally appropriate practices presented by Gaye Gronlund in her 2012 workshop: Rigorous Academics in Preschool? Yes! Through Playful Learning Throughout the Day.
A Child Who Can't Behave In Preschool Should Be... Taught! will explore what practitioners in early childhood classrooms need to know to be able to identify, implement, and assess evidence-based instructional practices and interventions that promote the social-emotional development of all young children. The focus will be on inclusive preschool classrooms.
1. Participants will understand the relationship between the development of academics and social emotional skills.
2. Participants will be able to describe basic components of the Kansas MTSS for Behavior and the Teaching Pyramid.
3. Participants will be able to identify methods for selecting and teaching social-emotional skills and competencies that are appropriate for all, some, and few.
4. Participants will understand the importance of explicit and intentional instruction of skills supporting social-emotional competence.
5. Participants will be able to identify evidence-based resources to assist practitioners in knowing how to embed effective social-emotional instruction for children at different levels of development throughout the preschool day (including practices also shown to promote early literacy and learning).
