[SOLVED] A summary of the NAEYC Revised Standards

Staff Training Assignment
The first linked reading for this week is a summary of the NAEYC Revised Standards for Professional Preparation. In reading this summary, you can see that there are six areas in which NAEYC (our national professional organization) believes teachers should be competent. (You can find the entire statement on the NAEYC website at www.naeyc.org
Teachers develop a beginning understanding of the competencies needed for each of these standards in college courses. However, once they begin working, it may have been many years since that last course – or they may need help putting theory into practice. As a director, it is your responsibility to determine where your staff needs support and to make a plan to help them grow in these competencies.
Pretend you are the director of an early childhood program – or you may already be one. Let’s assume you have done staff evaluations and also interest surveys and you have determined one of these NAEYC standards that you would particularly like to focus on for the next year.
Describe your imaginary staff. Assume you are the director of a program with three classrooms, each having a lead and assistant teacher and that there is a floater teacher who assists all the classrooms. This is a total of 7 staff members. For each of your imaginary staff members, write 3-4 sentences which include their level of education, years of experience and your assessment of their current level of practice (consider things like planning curriculum based on children’s interests, rich adult-child interactions, conflict-resolution skills, etc). Based on this overall assessment of your staff, choose one of the NAEYC standards and indicate why you decided to focus on this particular standard for staff development in the coming year. This needs to be clearly tied to what you have observed from your staff.
Make a plan for an initial 2 hour meeting you would have with your staff to introduce this focus for the year. Although staff meetings may focus on many different things, assume this meeting is ONLY to introduce the training focus for the year and get their “buy in”. Do NOT include other standard staff meeting items such as going over schedules, routine duties, etc.
For this staff meeting, include:
An agenda for the meeting (one that you would give to staff). This is typically bulleted so staff can take notes!
A description of when you would hold the meeting and where, including what the setup of the space would look like, length of meeting
A 1-2 page expansion of your agenda which will include details about each of the items. * How will you begin the meeting?
*What will you say and do to get everyone committed to exploration? * How will you introduce each topic?
This outline must include the beginning and ending times for each segment of the meeting as well as 2-3 specific descriptions of activities you would do with your staff to begin their training.
Reflection (2-3 paragraphs): Why did you decide to use this particular approach? What do you think will go easily with it? What will be difficult? What do you specifically need to keep in mind when working with this particular group?
Concerns to keep in mind:
How will you make the training meaningful for staff with different learning styles? With varied cultural backgrounds? At different stages of professional development?
Make sure that your assignment is detailed! Do not leave anything out!
