Annual SEEPP Enrichment Conference- Saturday, April 7, 2018
New Professional Development Opportunities Ahead
This twelve-hour training introduces teachers to Teaching Strategies GOLD, a Web-based, developmentally appropriate assessment system for children from birth through kindergarten. Through video clips, small-group work, and facilitator-led discussions, teachers will explore the structure, features, and functionality of the tool and practice using it to follow the four-step assessment cycle. Hands-on activities include observing children and writing objective observation notes, evaluating a child portfolio, and communicating assessment information with families. By the end of the session, teachers will have the basic skills they need to begin implementing Teaching Strategies GOLD in their classrooms. 
Registration deadline: January 11, 2018
