Professional Development Resources
This week you will add to your list of resources that you began last week for supporting teachers and staff in a variety of content areas. You will only focus on one core standard this week which is composed of several elements. Read NAEYC Standards for Early Childhood Professional Preparation Programs (Links to an external site.), focusing on Standard 5: Using Content Knowledge to Build Meaningful Curriculum. In your group divide the categories so that each member contributes one resource to their assigned curriculum content areas. (If you are a group of 2 each member will provide one resource for their five assigned areas, the larger the group the fewer areas each member will have):
