PD resource content

Resource material

The National P3 Center, NAESP,  and the CU School of Education & Human Development partnered this spring to record this 55-minute webinar about how to best support young children as they learn at home. Although developed for principals, the content presented can be applied to classroom teachers. This video focuses on two fundamentals: "Lean on Child Development" and "Keep Equity Front-and-Center." 

Learning Targets:

  1. Teachers will identify strategies to support the learning and development of young children regardless of the instructional setting.
  2. Teachers will become familiar with the guidance surrounding e-learning for students in the early grades focused on child development and equity.
