When a thoughtful approach is used in planning games for young children, the children gain confidence by working together toward a goal and insecurity is avoided because young children find it difficult to understand formal rules. The need to learn cooperation and problem-solving can be transferred to the games that are offered to young children. This hands-on session will offer strategies for non-competitive games to encourage inclusion and pro-social behavior among young children, while having fun! Having the participants engage in an interactive session by participating in games will offer them the opportunity to think through the challenges and solutions that make the games more inclusive and developmentally appropriate.
Developmental approach to supervision focuses on the fact that individuals who function at different conceptual or professional developmental levels at different stages of their careers should be supervised with qualitatively different techniques. Therefore, by reviewing the different stages of teacher development and supervisory behavior, participants will match the developmental level of their lead teachers to an appropriate supervisory style that will be a best fit within their OWN programs. The participants will also acquire strategies that will move teachers forward in their thinking about their role as a leader!
